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.
An international research team has found a genetic score that reliably predicts the risk, severity and age of onset of depression in young people.
Scientists have discovered that if a particular protein is missing during the foetal stage, no neurons develop that convey pain, temperature and itch.
By applying gene analysis to individual cells from early mouse embryos, researchers have discovered previously unknown cellular stages of foetal development from fertilised egg to living being.
UK researchers have found a way to predict rejection of a kidney transplant before it happens, by monitoring the immune system of transplant patients.
A powerful protein in the blood of pregnant woman could be used to find ways to treat and even prevent a wide range of age-related disorders.
A boy and a girl in Brisbane have been confirmed as the second set of semi-identical twins in the world — and the first to be identified by doctors during pregnancy.
Two separate studies have been investigating ways to suppress signs of ageing, which could eventually lead to extended lifespans in humans.
Scientists at Sydney's Centenary Institute have conducted a study which could change how researchers discover the causes of genetic heart disease.
