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.
The genetic roots of autism have been investigated for more than a decade, as DNA sequencing has...
Study of zebrafish reveals how dysfunction of SHANK3 or SYNGAP1 genes play a role in the...
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.
Researchers discover the genes that cause the buff-tailed bumblebee to develop into a male, worker or queen.
Researchers have identified a master genetic regulator that could account for faulty brain functions that contribute to schizophrenia.
Research delivers new data for stem cell scientists to more accurately study infertility.
Researchers have discovered that unique genome sequences allow fish, reptiles, birds and other animals to create a compound that acts as sunscreen.
Investigators at the Stanford University School of Medicine have identified a pattern of gene activity that could help scientists create a blood test for quickly and accurately detecting whether patients are experiencing a deadly immune-system panic attack.
Scientists engineer helpful protein that has greatly increased specificity
The new experimental assay can help scientists find the precise locations of repair of DNA damage caused by UV radiation and common chemotherapies. The invention could lead to better cancer drugs or improvements in the potency of existing ones.
'Network-guided association study,' or NetWAS, led to identification of gene interaction networks for organs as diverse as the kidney, the liver and the whole brain.
Results achieved in approximately six hours, compared to 60 hours with standard software.
The test can assess the risk for breast and ovarian cancer.
Researchers uncovered the critical role in pain processing of a gene associated with a rare disease. Their breakthrough, published in The Journal of Neuroscience, paves the way for a better understanding of chronic pain conditions.
The government is relying on some new technology - as well as a bit of luck - to track an outbreak of life-threatening listeria linked to Blue Bell ice cream products.
The intricately woven genetic makeup of Upland cotton has been decoded for the first time in the ancient plant’s history.
Routine genetic screening of children with CKD could lead to earlier, more precise diagnoses.
A genome-wide association study conducted by an international team led by the University of Southern California identified Nox3 as a critical gene for susceptibility to noise-induced hearing loss in mice. The gene, which is almost exclusively expressed in the inner ear, was identified in a study published in the April 16 edition of PLOS Genetics.
Findings identify a cause of the disease and highlight potential therapeutic approach.
More cancer patients are getting the genes in their tumors mapped to help guide their treatment. New research suggests that isn't always accurate enough, and a second test could help ferret out the culprit genes.
As personalized medicine is integrated into mainstream medical treatment, sequencing clinically relevant genes using the latest next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies will prove instrumental in guiding clinicians towards informed treatment decisions.
An international research project to sequence whole genomes from mountain gorillas has given scientists and conservationists new insight into the impact of population decline on these critically endangered apes. While mountain gorillas are extensively inbred and at risk of extinction, research published today in Science finds more to be optimistic about in their genomes than expected.
Thermo Scientific Peltier-cooled incubators feature solid-state Peltier cooling designed for biological and genomics laboratory researchers engaged in fruit fly and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) research.
The first personalized cancer vaccine using genomics to define targets elicits robust immune responses, says a recent Science study.
Investigators have identified an inflammatory molecule that appears to play an essential role in the autoimmune disorder commonly known as lupus. Researchers describe finding that a protein that regulates certain cells in the innate immune system activates a molecular pathway known to be associated with lupus and that the protein’s activity is required for the development of lupus symptoms in a mouse model of the disease.
Genetic studies in humans, zebrafish and mice have revealed how two different types of genetic variations team up to cause a rare condition called Hirschsprung’s disease.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences used information collected from hundreds of skin swabs to produce three-dimensional maps of molecular and microbial variations across the body.
