Naturally, mammals can only reproduce sexually – which has its upsides of course, but it makes us a little less adaptable than other species that can do things by themselves. In investigating why that's the case, Chinese researchers have successfully managed to breed healthy mice with genetic material from two mothers, using stem cells and gene editing...

Using data from nearly half a million people, a team of researchers has developed what they are calling a Genomic Risk Score (GRS), which can assess a person's genetic risk factor for developing coronary heart disease. The test will allow doctors to combine a GRS with other risk factors to better target at risk individuals... Continue Reading Adult heart attack risk can be predicted in chi
A new study led by researchers from the Hudson Institute of Medical Research in Australia has identified twelve significant genetic differences between transgender women and non-transgender males. These genes, known to be involved in sex hormone signaling, are hypothesized to possibly contribute to a person's ultimate sense of gender identity... Continue Reading New study probes the geneti
A fascinating new study from scientists at UCLA has proposed a novel strategy to help autistic individuals improve their ability to process visual information. The experimental technique, demonstrated in mice, found that certain dysfunctional cells in the visual cortex can be genetically "tuned" to better respond allowing improved visual and sensory learning abilities...

Anglerfish are famous for their head-mounted bulbs that light up the inky blackness of the deepest oceans, but exactly what's going on in that process is still relatively unknown. To find out, researchers from Cornell University have now sequenced the genome of the bacteria that live inside those lightbulbs, and found a strange story of symbiosis still in progress...

A strong research paper from scientists at the Wellcome Sanger Institute has again raised doubts over the safety and accuracy of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing technique. The study suggests that the gene editing process can cause extensive unforeseen and unpredictable alterations to DNA sequences outside of the intended targets...

Humanity might not go out with a bang, but a sniffle – at least if the terrifyingly-plausible "superbug" scenario comes to pass. As bacteria increasingly evolve resistance to antibiotics, we could be cast back into "the dark ages of medicine" in the next few decades. But now we might have a new way to fight back. Researchers at Oxford University have discovered a "genetic catalyst" that le
A DNA test has just been launched allowing parents to screen their newborn babies and children for a variety of childhood-onset diseases. Offered by genomic testing company Sema4, the test involves gathering a DNA sample via a simple cheek swab that is then mailed back to the company for sequencing...Continue Reading New Sema4 DNA test screens your child for 193 genetic diseasesCategory: Heal
New research led by at team at Keele University has revealed that human skeletal muscle has an epigenetic memory determined by earlier growth. This very literal discovery of "muscle memory" not only offers new insight into how exercise and rehabilitation programs can better target genes responsible for muscle growth, but potentially has dramatic implications for the long-lasting effects of pe
