Researchers have developed a new method for detecting and destroying the dengue virus that could be adapted for other viruses.
A new study has revealed how the fundamental enzyme called DNA polymerase delta operates during DNA replication, making a copy of the genetic code that can be transmitted through the generations.
DNA-based nanomachines are being created by DNA origami in several ways to create mechanical force at the scale of picoNewtons.
Researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne have discovered the gene code that sets the pace and order of fetal development.
A Massachusetts General Hospital research team has used epigenome editing tools to investigate how the genetic abnormality that drives Ewing sarcoma - the second most common bone cancer in children and young adults - unleashes tumor growth.
In a recently published study in the journal Nature Microbiology, researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory show that computer simulations can accurately predict the transmission of HIV across populations, which could aid in preventing the disease.
A father’s genes are no longer thought to just provide a blueprint for the growth and development of their offspring.
Childhood nephrotic syndrome is the most frequently occurring chronic kidney disease among children. A Japanese research team has identified a group of genes that are strongly related to the development of childhood nephrotic syndrome.
Researchers have helped solve a decades-old mystery about which mutations are responsible for an inherited bone marrow disorder.
A majority of Americans support the idea of using gene editing with the goal of delivering direct health benefits for babies.
An international team of scientists, including researchers from Baylor College of Medicine, has discovered mutations of gene IRF2BPL that are associated with a previously undiagnosed neurological disorder in seven unrelated individuals.
It doesn't often happen that army generals switch sides in the middle of a war, but when cancer's attack is underway, it may even cause a gene that acts as the body's master defender to change allegiance.
The therapeutic potential of human induced pluripotent stem cells, which are capable of becoming almost any type of cell in the human body, is well-recognized and broadly pursued, but their mutational burden has not been fully characterized yet.
