A new study adds to the understanding of the genetic architecture of schizophrenia.
Researchers identify one surprising case in which mutations in a single gene render children vulnerable to two very different diseases: aggravating, but treatable fungal infections, as well as invasive and potentially fatal bacterial disease.
Climate change is shrinking the geographic range of many bumblebee species in North America and Europe, putting them in danger of future extinction, scientists say.
The “friendly” bacteria inside our digestive systems are being given an upgrade, which may one day allow them to be programmed to detect and ultimately treat diseases such as colon cancer and immune disorders.
Researchers at the University of Adelaide in Australia are using optical spectroscopy to develop a quick, non-invasive “breath test” they believe will have the potential to screen for a variety of diseases, including diabetes, infections and cancers.
Lower IQ, reduced language comprehension, and decreased grey matter density is experienced by children having general anesthesia for surgery before age four, says new research in the journal Pediatrics.
The researchers studied the yersinia pestis bacterium.
AMSBIO has launched a new range of human exosomes to the regenerative medicine tools and technologies market. Derived from placental and adipose derived stem cells, to ensure consistent high quality, these new products are ideally suited for research involving wound healing, stem cell differentiation and tissue regeneration.
The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), which has been proposed as a successor to the Hubble Space Telescope for launch in 2018 and will study the universe in infrared wavelengths, could give us a first glimpse into the atmospheres of Earth-like exoplanets.
Researchers are seeking to better understand staph bacteria, information that could lead to reductions of the potentially lethal pathogen.
Researchers have built a simulation to show how cancerous tumors manipulate blood-vessel growth for their own benefit.
Using gene therapy, researchers have restored hearing in mice that have a genetic form of deafness.
This article reports on three researchers at different labs who have traditionally used x-ray film to develop western blot images and their experience testing it side-by-side with digital imaging.
Bioscience Technology sat down with Tom Lowery, Ph.D. chief scientific officer of T2 Biosystems, to talk about a new diagnostic tool that can test and detect sepsis in as little as three hours, compared to a traditional blood culture that can take two to five days.
