Exosome-mediated epigenetic repression of HIV

A new study has used exosomes to deliver novel proteins into the cells of HIV infected mice to prevent the […]

Can we genetically control the world’s deadliest animal?

Researchers have developed a technology, which they called precision-guided sterile insect technique, that is able to suppress and eliminate harmful […]

Down the Rabbit Hole: Genetics and Obesity – Giles Yeo

Giles Yeo is a Principal Research Associate at MRC Metabolic Diseases Unit and the Scientific Director of the Genomics/Transcriptomics Core […]

Predictability of resistance to anticancer drugs

Researchers have explored the predictability of genetic versus nongenetic resistance mechanisms to anticancer drugs in melanoma. Development of resistance Metastasis […]

Eliminating malaria via a simple genetic modification

Researchers have tested genetically modifying mosquitos to express antimalarial genes and pass them on to offspring as a new strategy […]

The origins of antibiotic resistance

By comparing thousands of bacterial genomes, researchers have traced back the evolutionary history of antibiotic resistance genes. Antibiotic resistance Antibiotic […]

Overlapping genetic association in type I and type II diabetes

Due to the potential shared aetiology between type I and type II diabetes, researchers recently aimed to identify any genetic […]

Genetically engineered probiotics

Advancements in the field of synthetic biology, genetic engineering and genome sequencing technologies have provided the opportunity to improve the […]

Heterochromatin-dependent processes contribute to fungal resistance

Researchers from the University of Edinburgh have identified how fungal resistance to drugs develops. Originally, researchers thought that only mutations […]

Machine learning and Darwin combined to piece together tumour genetics

MOBSTER – model-based clustering in cancer, is a machine learning tool that incorporates theoretical population genetics from Darwin to examine […]
