Japanese Study Identifies 35 Genetic Risk Factors for Atrial Fibrillation

In a new study published in Nature, researchers have identified 35 genetic susceptibility loci for atrial fibrillation (AF) in a […]

Uncovering Novel MAPK Interactors: A Novel Yeast-based Genetic Screening Platform

In a recent study published in Science, researchers have developed a yeast-based genetic screening pipeline for evaluating large numbers of […]

Variant-to-gene mapping uncovers genetic link to sleep regulation

A team of researchers from Texas A&M University, the University of Pennsylvania and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia have uncovered […]

Predictive models could identify oncogenic genetic events

Researchers have shown that some cancer-causing genetic events are underpinned by regulatory gene activity. The study, published in Nature, highlights […]

Social behaviours influenced by genetic and environmental factors

A team of researchers from the University of Utah have discovered that inhibition of the enzyme topoisomerase IIα (Top2a) during […]

Gene therapy for neurological diseases possible with new brain-targeting viral vectors

A major challenge in the field of gene therapy is ensuring that treatments are delivered to the correct location in […]

‘Mini eyes’ grown in lab aid understanding of genetic blindness

Researchers at UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health (UCL GOS ICH) have grown ‘mini eyes’ to assess blindness. […]

Genetic biomarker profile defined for hard-to-diagnose Lyme disease

Lyme disease is often undiagnosed or misdiagnosed – here we report that there may finally be a genetic biomarker profile […]

Leukaemias ‘re-programme’ themselves using epigenetic regulators

Some leukaemias are able to alter the proteins they express on the cell surface in order to evade cancer treatment. […]

TET protein genes linked to cancer growth

Researchers at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology have uncovered how the deletion of TET (ten-eleven translocation) protein genes can […]
