Using human pluripotent stem cells, researchers have shown that a gene called NKX2-5 is responsible for regulating heart rhythm and heart muscle cell development.
A newly discovered molecular mechanism of gene regulation could help develop treatment strategies for genetic diseases.
Professor Daniel Szymanski used the model plant Arabidopsis to analyse how intracellular signalling networks pattern cell walls to generate particular cell shapes and sizes.
Ebola virus may have re-emerged in a woman a year after she survived an acute infection, potentially leading to the infection of her husband and two of their sons.
The N-ICE Trial will see researchers investigate whether N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) can reduce cravings for crystal methamphetamine, or 'ice'.
Scientists at Newcastle University, UK, have 3D-printed the first human corneas.
Scientists at a US-based hospital have identified the mechanism that determines how T cells specialise their development.
If you thought stress was a solely human trait, you thought wrong.
A new hybrid technique enhances the effectiveness of a special form of radiation therapy for cancer treatment.
A new genetic engineering technique has enabled US scientists to accelerate the evolution of a microorganism's desirable traits.
The federal government is creating an Australian Antarctic Science Council to revitalise science research, as well as boost Hobart's position as an Antarctic science hub.
Bacteria's ability to transfer genes, like those associated with antibiotic resistance, is governed by a previously unknown set of rules that are written in the DNA of the recipient.
The centre will help Australian researchers maximise the benefits of observing Earth from space and further develop Australia's space sector.
