Whole gene replacement possible with new gene-editing tool

Researchers have developed a new tool that could potentially ‘cut’ out faulty genes and ‘paste’ in full-length copies of corrected […]

A Spotlight On: The social and ethical implications of reproductive genetic technologies – Felicity Boardman

Felicity Boardman, Professor of Social Science in Genomics at Warwick University joins us to discuss her research into the social […]

Virus-derived CRISPR systems may be added to the gene-editing toolbox

The CRISPR-Cas9 system revolutionised genome editing approaches. Recent work on the CRISPR gene editing technology won the 2020 Nobel Prize […]

Social behaviours influenced by genetic and environmental factors

A team of researchers from the University of Utah have discovered that inhibition of the enzyme topoisomerase IIα (Top2a) during […]

Gene therapy for neurological diseases possible with new brain-targeting viral vectors

A major challenge in the field of gene therapy is ensuring that treatments are delivered to the correct location in […]

‘Mini eyes’ grown in lab aid understanding of genetic blindness

Researchers at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH) have grown ‘mini eyes’ to assess blindness. […]

Genetic biomarker profile defined for hard-to-diagnose Lyme disease

Lyme disease is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed – here we report that there may finally be a genetic biomarker profile […]

Leukaemias ‘re-programme’ themselves using epigenetic regulators

Some leukaemias are able to alter the proteins they express on the cell surface in order to evade cancer treatment. […]

A Spotlight On: Increasing Diversity in Genetics Studies – Karoline Kuchenbaecker

Karoline Kuchenbaecker, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at University College London, joins us to discuss her work to increase representation in […]

Searching in the dark: The role of epigenetics in cancer development

New research, led by scientists at The Institute of Cancer Research, the Human Technopole in Milan, and Queen Mary University […]
