Setting the tempo for embryonic development

Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute have identified the clock that sets the speed of embryonic development. They have discovered […]

Susceptibility of the human embryo to SARS-CoV-2

Researchers at the University of Cambridge and the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have identified genes active in early embryonic […]

Study finds aneuploidy common in early-stage human embryos

A new single-cell study has found that aneuploidy is common in early-stage human embryos, a finding that may have implications […]

Studies find CRISPR gene-editing of human embryos give rise to unwanted results.

CRISPR gene-editing is a technique that allows the genomes of living organisms to be modified. Naturally, this has been looked […]

Telomere protection in stem cells

In a new study published in Nature, researchers at the Francis Crick Institute have uncovered the unique way stem cells […]

Intersex: When binary notions simply don’t fit

The term ‘gender’ can be subjective. It is often seen as a social construct that each individual has their own […]

Clinical utility of exome sequencing in pregnancy loss

A recent study, published in Genetics in Medicine, has explored the clinical utility of exome sequencing for detecting monogenic aetiology […]

Down syndrome: New genetic approaches

A recent review, published in Cell, has examined the lessons learned from model systems and has explored emerging methods for […]

Cryptic exon in mice is essential for male sex determination

An international collaboration with The University of Queensland has found a hidden DNA fragment that is critical for male sex […]

Potential drug targets for paediatric germ cell tumours

Researchers have performed a comprehensive genetic analysis and identified potential drug targets for paediatric germ cell tumours (GCTs). Germ cell […]
