Shuttle up for some genomics in space

Space. A silent vacuum beyond the upper limits of Earth’s atmosphere, home to billions of galaxies within our universe. A […]

Genomics: Not all doom and gloom

In the past Genomics has faced a lot of controversy, particularly in relation to eugenics. Even today, applications of genomics, […]

Neutralising gene drives

Researchers at the University of California, San Diego, have developed two new genetic systems that halt or eliminate gene drives […]

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 […]

Promises and pitfalls of precision medicine clinical trials, now and in the future.

As we move towards an ever more personalised healthcare system, genomics is at the heart of what makes an individual […]

Researchers have rapidly reconstructed the SARS-CoV-2 virus using synthetic genomics

Swiss and German researchers have developed a yeast-based synthetic genomics platform that can rapidly reconstruct diverse RNA viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, […]

Controlling gene expression with computer-inspired protein gates

Scientists have designed tools to regulate protein-protein interactions, akin to the structure of electronics, that are capable of controlling T-cell […]
