Gene Changes That Affect Brain Size Identified
The identity of eight common mutations may one day reveal more about Alzheimer’s, autism and other neurological disorders.
Major Study Links Gene to Drug Resistance in Testicular Cancer
Researchers used a genetic technique called whole-exome sequencing to examine tumour samples.
New 'Systems Genetics' Study Identifies Possible Target For Epilepsy Treatment
A single gene that coordinates a network of about 400 genes involved in epilepsy could be a target for new treatments, according to research.
First Major Analysis Of Human Protein Atlas Published
A research article published in Science presents the first major analysis based on the Human Protein Atlas, including a detailed picture of the proteins that are linked to cancer, the number of proteins present in the bloodstream, and the targets for all approved drugs on the market.
New Blood Test For Aggressive Bone Cancer
Researchers at the University of East Anglia are developing a simple blood test to diagnose bone cancer thanks to funding from the Big C.
NIH Researchers Tackle Thorny Side of Gene Therapy
Pre-clinical studies in mice reveal ways to reduce cancer risk with modified treatment.
Tumor Suppressor Protein Plays Key Role In Maintaining Immune Balance
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists show that the PTEN tumor suppressor protein is essential for proper regulatory T cell function; discovery offers new focus for improving treatment of autoimmune diseases.
A Combination Of Genes Results In Malaria Drug Resistance
The largest genome-wide study of the malaria parasite finds that the drug resistance occurs because of a key mutation happening on top of 'background' mutations which make the parasite more likely to develop drug resistance later.
Insights Into A Rare Genetic Disease
Study shows mutation in NGLY1 gene is linked to a genetic disorder with severe consequences.
