Evolution of mutations can be predicted by DNA tangles

New research has revealed evolutionary hotspots in DNA tangles where mutations are more likely to occur. Mutational hotspots Mutational hotspots […]

Rate of somatic mutations inversely correlates with lifespan

Somatic mutations are implicated in important life processes such as cancer and ageing, yet they still are not well understood. […]

Evolutionary selection of mutations in blood controls disease progression

A new study, published in Nature Communications, has developed a machine learning model that can identify the evolutionary pressures acting […]

Uncovering processes that drive germline mutations

A new study, published in Science, has used computational analysis to reveal the mechanisms behind germline mutations. Their findings have […]

Machine learning uncovers tumorigenic mutations

Identifying whether specific mutations in cancer genes have an impact on tumour formation is a largely unsolved problem in the […]

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has been linked to genetic mutations

A genome-wide study has identified potential risk genes that are associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), confirming the validity of using […]

Uninherited mutations in spina bifida

Researchers have found that uninherited mutations that occur randomly during the earliest stages of embryonic development can cause spina bifida. […]

WES uncovers mutations for rare paediatric diseases

Using whole-exome sequencing (WES), researchers have identified underlying variants in children with rare genetic paediatric diseases. Rare genetic paediatric diseases […]

DECODR: CRISPR app reveal unwanted mutations

Researchers from ChristianaCare’s Gene Editing Institute have developed a new tool – DECODR – which reveals unwanted mutations at sites […]

Native American Ancestry Linked To Increased EGFR Mutations In Latin American Patients With Lung Cancer

A recent study, published by the American Association for Cancer Research has discovered that among patients with lung cancer from […]
