Pheno-RNA: a method to associate genes with phenotypes

In a recent article, published in PNAS, researchers have described a new method – Pheno-RNA – to identify candidate genes […]

Human brain-derived proteome data helps elucidate a genetic causal pathway for neurological phenotypes

A team of researchers have analysed human proteome data from brain tissue to study whether targeted proteins predictively mediated the […]

High Blood Pressure Could Increase Your Risk of Pneumonia

Epidemiological analyses have linked hypertension to an increased risk of pneumonia. This study from the UK biobank confirmed this correlation […]

Early results from the UK Biobank Exome Sequencing Consortium

The UK Biobank Exome Sequencing Consortium has released, as preprint in medRxiv, early results from the exome sequencing data generated […]

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 […]

Computational Genetics: A Massive Step for Neuroscience

Complex brain disorders are highly heritable and largely polygenic. They arise from a complex combination of risk genes, found in […]

Lung microbiome implicated in lung cancer pathogenesis and prognosis

A recent paper, published in Cancer Discovery, has found that enrichment of the lungs with oral commensal microbes was associated […]

Circular RNA: Liquid biopsy biomarker for human diseases

A recent review, published in Protein & Cell, has explored the potential use of blood circular RNA as a liquid […]

Mutation-induced remodelling in Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from patients with cystic fibrosis have revealed mutation-induced remodelling of the BfmRS two-component system. Thereby, […]

What is Non-Genetic Inheritance?

Epigenetic mechanisms are highly complex, diverse and often poorly understood. A recent study, published in Cell, discusses the diverse features […]
