New genomic analyses of people currently living in Ethiopia and Egypt indicate that Egypt was the major gateway out of Africa and that migration followed a northern rather than a southern route.
Lightly stimulating the brain with electricity may improve short-term memory in people with schizophrenia, according to a new study.
In what they believe to be the first survey of its kind in the United States, researchers have found that as many as 6 percent of adult New Yorkers who get “inked”—in other words, those who get a tattoo—have experienced some form of tattoo-related rash, severe itching, or swelling that lasted longer than four months and, in some cases, for many years.
The genetic roots of autism have been investigated for more than a decade, as DNA sequencing has continued to improve. A new study points to a particular mutation in mice causing autistic-like behavior, adding to a list of potential causes.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine are asking for better tracking, and a gentler approach, for animal testing in the U.S.
Engineered probiotics can detect tumors in the liver.
Researchers are collaborating through the ClinGen consortium to pinpoint disease-causing genetic variants.
The first report from a big public-private project to improve genetic testing reveals it is not as rock solid as many people believe, with flaws that result in some people wrongly advised to worry about a disease risk and others wrongly told they can relax.
Degeneration of the white matter of the brain may be an early marker of specific types of Alzheimer's disease (AD), including early-onset AD, according to results of a new study published in the journal Radiology.
About 90 percent of advanced prostate cancers have particular genetic mutations that can provide a target for cancer drugs. An international team of scientists say they have cataloged a comprehensive map of those mutations in metastatic prostate cancers, in a paper published in the journal Cell.
Understanding how cells become coronary vessels may lead to advances in repairing heart damage .
Researchers discover the genes that cause the buff-tailed bumblebee to develop into a male, worker or queen.
Researchers have designed a small and simple chip to test for antibiotic resistance in just one hour, giving doctors a shot at picking the most effective antibiotic to treat potentially deadly infections. Their work was was published this week in the international journal Lab on a Chip.
