DNA methylation in cervical cells may aid ovarian cancer detection

A new study, published yesterday in Nature Communications, has found that the DNA methylation of cells collected during cervical smear […]

The relationship between DNA methylation and disease

By carrying out a genome-wide association study, researchers have uncovered novel mechanisms linking DNA methylation and disease. Their findings greatly […]

Distinct DNA methylation sites associated with heart disease

A new study, published in JAMA Cardiology, has identified DNA methylation sites associated with heart disease. Most importantly, the study […]

Differential DNA methylation contributes to risk of multiple sclerosis

A recent study has discovered differentially methylated genomic regions harbouring 4 loci associated with risk of multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis […]

The effects of DNA methylation on 3D structure

Researchers have explored how methylation patterns have a protein-independent regulatory role that increases the stiffness of DNA, which ultimately impacts […]

Researchers Identify Jumping “Junk” DNA as a Novel Cause of Paediatric Brain Cancer

Written by Bethany Hoernfeldt, Science Writer  Researchers at St. Jude Children’s Hospital have discovered the first causal link between “jumping” […]

New immune-profiling method uses DNA from blood

Researchers have created a novel immune-profiling method that can return detailed immune cell type proportions by using only DNA from […]

Fluctuating methylation clocks can trace cell fates

Researchers have shown that fluctuating DNA methylation sites can be used as ‘clocks’ to trace the lineage of a cell. […]

DNA Sequencing: How to Choose the Right Technology

Introduction It has been over 30 years since the first generation of DNA sequencing technology was developed in 1977. Since […]

Cancer cells take advantage of DNA’s 3D structure

Researchers have explored how cancer cells re-organise the 3D structure of their DNA to enhance oncogene activity. Cancer cells In […]
