Scientists have identified mutations in a gene called CNOT1 that affect brain development and impair memory and learning.
Anopheles mosquitoes that have been genetically engineered with multiple antimalaria molecules are strongly resistant to the parasite that causes malaria.
We all know those people who can eat what they want but do not appear to gain weight, leading scientists to look for genes linked to thinness.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has optimised its Ion AmpliSeq SARS-CoV-2 Research Panel, previously designed to run on the Ion GeneStudio S5 System, for the Ion Torrent Genexus System. The panel is useful for laboratories that intend to sequence SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus samples.
A global collaboration of scientists has more than doubled the known number of regions on the human genome that influence the risk of developing melanoma.
Tecan's DreamPrep solutions provide ready-to-go workflows for nucleic acid extraction and NGS library prep, helping to boost the productivity of labs investigating the SARS-CoV-2 virus — the causative agent of COVID-19.
Scientists have discovered a protein that works with others during development to put the brakes on cell division in the heart.
The older the father, the increased risk a child has of developing disorders such as autism, ADHD and other learning disabilities.
All living organisms, including pathogens, need iron to survive. Now, researchers have detailed the structure of the protein responsible for transporting iron to Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
By studying genetically altered zebrafish, scientists have managed to pinpoint a human gene involved in nicotine addiction and also discover the ways in which it may act.
Researchers have found that the cell death-regulating protein MCL1 is essential in protecting the intestine against cancer development, independent of bacterial-driven inflammation.
Researchers have created a 3D atomic-scale map of the part of the novel coronavirus that attaches to and infects human cells, known as the spike (S) protein.
Researchers have developed a tool to share with the international health sciences community which can help determine how the virus that causes COVID-19 is spreading and whether it is evolving.
Researchers can target a specific defective gene, cut it out and glue in a healthy replacement. In blind mice, this approach rescued approximately 10% of photoreceptors.
The high-performance kit offers a holistic view of the complete transcriptome in a simplified workflow and is compatible with a broad range of sample inputs from a variety of sample types, including degraded RNA specimens.
