New research finds ABI3 gene function in Alzheimer’s disease

Scientists have found that loss of ABI3 function, a protein-coding gene, may increase the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by […]

The functional importance of unusual DNA structures called G4s has been revealed

For the first time, researchers have found that G-quadruplex structures (G4s) in DNA could be added to the list of […]

Genetic variants impact immune cell function

Researchers have harnessed the power of genome-wide sequencing and functional profiling of immune cells to understand how genetic variants can […]

Rare neurodevelopmental disorder associated with SATB1 dysfunction

A recent study has reported on three classes of mutations within the gene SATB1 which result in three variations of […]

Transposon expression impacts neuronal function

Research at the University of Oxford has revealed that transposon expression within the brain is not random and is in […]

Heterochromatin-dependent processes contribute to fungal resistance

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh have identified how fungal resistance to drugs develops. Originally, researchers thought that only mutations […]

CRUK funds development of POC blood-based brain cancer test

Cancer Research UK (CRUK) has funded a project run by a team of researchers at the University of Bristol to […]

Brain tumours treated with donor STEM cells

Researchers have developed a novel therapeutic strategy for treating brain tumours using stem cells taken from healthy donors engineered to […]

Epigenetic clocks shared by dogs and humans

Research by the USA’s National Human Genome Research Institute describes epigenetic clocks that apply to both dogs and humans. The […]

Tregs: Treacherous cells offer a new therapeutic target in colorectal cancer

Scientists have linked a subset of T cells to the progression of colorectal cancer tumours. Researchers also showed that blocking […]
