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.
Scientists have engineered what is claimed to be the first breed of genetically modified mosquitoes resistant to spreading all four types of the dengue virus.
Illumina has announced the NextSeq 1000 and NextSeq 2000 Sequencing Systems — offering clever system design, chemistry innovations and on-instrument integrated informatics for rapid secondary analysis in as little as 2 h.
US scientists have captured the first images of a new gene editing tool that could improve on existing CRISPR-based tools.
Until now it has been difficult to estimate lifespan for most wild animals, particularly long-living species of marine mammals and fish.
A person's risk of developing cancer is affected by genetic variations in regions of DNA that don't code for proteins, previously dismissed as 'junk DNA'.
It was previously known that women with endometriosis had a higher risk of developing uterine fibroids. However, the common mechanism underlying these diseases was not known.
Scientists have identified how damaged DNA molecules are repaired inside the human genome — a discovery that offers new insights into how the body works to ensure its health.
The ability to select embryos for traits that are brought about by multiple genes is more complicated than people probably realise.
Researchers transplanted engineered pancreatic beta cells into diabetic mice, then caused the cells to produce two to three times the typical level of insulin by exposing them to light.
Researchers have discovered changes in blood samples which are associated with Alzheimer's disease, thanks to an international study of Finnish twins.
