We inherit more epigenetic info than we thought

26 August, 2022

Epigenetic information, which sits on top of DNA and is normally reset between generations, is more frequently carried from mother to offspring than previously thought.

Many human genomes shaped by 'founder events'

27 June, 2022

The genomes of many human populations show evidence of so-called founder events, which occur when a small number of initial members start a new population and can lead to low genetic diversity.

Sperm epigenetic aging may help predict pregnancy success

10 June, 2022

Sperm epigenetic aging — the biological, rather than chronological, aging of sperm — has the potential to predict the success and time it takes to become pregnant.

Herpes virus modified to fight cancer

08 June, 2022

Researchers have managed to deactivate the genes of the herpes virus that cause disease, thus rendering it suitable for treatment.
