Why is it that fat stored in one part of the body has different health implications to fat stored somewhere else?
An 18-year schizophrenia study — made possible by the recruitment, diagnosis and DNA screening of thousands of people in India — has identified a new clue in the quest for causes of the illness.
When the researchers knocked out the protein ATF4 in cells or mice, they found tumour cells continued to build up those proteins and eventually died as a result of stress.
Researchers are focused on a protein called α-synuclein as a target for a novel Parkinson's disease treatment.
Longas Technologies has emerged from stealth mode, unveiling its Morphoseq technology and announcing the appointment of Nick McCooke as its CEO.
The non-invasive nature of the test allows clinicians to screen embryos that were previously assessed as not strong enough for biopsy.
Researchers have discovered that a fragment of the 'galanin' neuropeptide is involved in anhedonia, which is the loss of the capacity to feel pleasure in daily activities.
The collaboration between Pryzm Health and BGI Genomics aims to improve the utility of genomic testing for the clinic and lower the barriers for access to precision health care.
Researchers have shown the de facto key role played by the protein galectin-3 in Alzheimer's disease, demonstrating a reduction in plaque and inflammatory load after the protein was blocked in mice.
Integrated DNA Technologies (IDT) has launched its Custom NGS Adapters offering, providing an easy and flexible customised adapter solution directly to scientists.
A gene called PHF6 plays a powerful role in protecting against blood cancer — and a breakdown in the gene's function could accelerate the development of T cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.
Scientists could help match cancer patients with no other treatment options to clinical trials with experimental medicines, by analysing the genetic faults in a sample of their blood.
Researchers have discovered epigenetic markers that are distinctly different in oral cancer tissues compared to the adjacent healthy tissues in patients.
US researchers have discovered how mosquitoes pick up on acidic volatiles found in human sweat.
The method may provide a more accurate snapshot of rearranged DNA found in cancer, and could help connect cancer patients with personalised treatments faster than current methods.
