Glioblastoma Mutations Impair EGFR Ligand Differentiation

Written by Vered Smith, Freelance Science Writer  Glioblastoma Mutations Impair EGFR Ligand Differentiation  Scientists have discovered that mutations in glioblastoma […]

Mutations that cause adult blood cancer occur in childhood

The findings of a new study have revealed that mutations driving blood cancer in adults may have been acquired in […]

Genetic mutations may not be random

The findings of a new study have dramatically challenged the established theory of evolution. For years, we have believed that […]

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. […]
