The total number of deals in the global gene therapy market more than doubled from 16 in 2013 to 36 in 2014.
Researchers have found that a naturally occurring modified DNA base appears to be stably incorporated in the DNA of many mammalian tissues, possibly representing an expansion of the functional DNA alphabet.
Gene previously linked to obesity is unrelated, says new study.
Study provides deep insights into course, makeup of deadly disease.

Welcome to Bioscience Technology’s new series Bioscience Bulletin, where we bring you the five most popular headlines from the week.
The “Ancient One,” aka the 8,500 year old Kennewick Man, is related to modern Native Americans after all, according to a recent DNA analysis published in Nature.
A new study has linked genetic variants which increase the risk of high blood pressure to a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The research suggests a possible protective effect for treatments used to reduce blood pressure.
A team of researchers led by the University of Cambridge has described for the first time in humans how the epigenome – the suite of molecules attached to our DNA that switch our genes on and off – is comprehensively erased in early primordial germ cells prior to the generation of egg and sperm. However, some regions of our DNA resist complete reprogramming.
When your cat turns up its nose at a new food, its genes are to blame, say scientists.
This new atlas of human organ epigenomes provides a starting place to understand the role of chemical markers in development, health and disease.
A rare eye disorder marked by color blindness, light sensitivity, and other vision problems can result from a newly discovered gene mutation identified by an international research team.
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 continued to improve. A new study points to a particular mutation in mice causing autistic-like behavior, adding to a list of potential causes.
Study of zebrafish reveals how dysfunction of SHANK3 or SYNGAP1 genes play a role in the development of Autism Spectrum Disorder.
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.
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.
