Researchers have revealed that resting during a holiday period restores functions associated with DNA regulation in shift workers suffering from sleep deprivation.
An international research team has revealed that mutations in a gene known to underlie a rare skin disorder also lead to a serious heart disease.
Researchers have used CRISPR gene-editing technology to produce mosquitoes that are unable to replicate Zika virus and therefore cannot infect humans through biting.
Scientists have studied the phenomenon of the placebo effect in the context of nausea, and identified specific proteins that correlate with its favourable impact.
Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have identified three major molecular subtypes of Alzheimer's disease using data from RNA sequencing.
An infant's odd case of rare encephalitis has led researchers to discover never-before-seen genetic mutations and a technique to examine the gene responsible for immunity.
Researchers have provided evidence that mice with a disrupted ABCA13 protein demonstrate a hallmark behaviour of schizophrenia.
Scientists have found genetic mutations that are present in just one of a pair of identical twins and traced them back to the first days after conception.
UK researchers have identified for the first time the way viruses like the poliovirus and the common cold virus 'package up' their genetic code, allowing them to infect cells.
A new method allows researchers to turn off CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing until it reaches key cell cycle phases where more accurate repairs are likely to happen.
The hub is set to elevate local genomics research and clinical trials to a global scale by establishing three core platforms in clinical genomics, bioinformatics and health economics.
A new gene therapy approach could one day treat an eye disease that leads to a progressive loss of vision and affects thousands of people across the globe.
Australian scientists have found that humans share important genetic mechanisms with a prehistoric sea sponge that comes from the Great Barrier Reef.
Pregnant women with obesity could reduce the health risks for their infants through improved diet and more physical activity.
The research team's key finding — the changing state of a protein's structural bonds — is likely to have significant implications as to how proteins are targeted by medical researchers.
