Down the Rabbit Hole – DNA Data Storage, James Banal

James Banal is a Postdoctoral Researcher at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Professor Mark Bathe’s laboratory. While Banal is […]

New blood test can measure pace of ageing

The team behind a recent study has developed a new blood test which is able to measure the pace of […]

How do tumour cells use collagen to become dormant?

Researchers have discovered that collagen is key for the ability of tumour cells to enter a dormant life cycle, with […]

CRISPR screens identify drivers of ageing in the brain

Using high-throughput CRISPR-Cas9 screens, researchers have systematically uncovered gene knockouts that impact ageing in neural stem cells of the brain. […]

Genetics Unzipped podcast: A menagerie of malignancy – cancer across the animal kingdom

In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, presenter Dr Kat Arney takes a trip to the zoo to find out […]

Oesophageal cancer signatures from around the world

A major global collaboration has provided new insights into the huge variation in oesophageal cancer incidence around the world. Oesophageal […]

Antimicrobial resistance: This is not just a phage

I worked at a pharmacy for over seven years. During that time, thousands of prescriptions for antibiotics came and went. […]

Combining single-cell and metagenomics to characterise the microbiome

Metagenomic analysis has greatly advanced our understanding of the human microbiome. However, metagenome-assembled genomes are often imprecise and are unable […]

A high mutational burden is not fully responsible for ageing

Despite previous thoughts, researchers have now found that cells tolerate a lot more mutations without impacting their function. Mutational burden […]

Effect of WGS on clinical management in acutely ill infants

Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) shows promise as a first-line genetic test for acutely ill infants. However, before wide-spread adoption and implementation, […]
