JAG2 Mutation – New cause for Muscular Dystrophy

A mutation in a previously unexamined Notch ligand, JAG2, is found to cause a rare form of muscular dystrophy (MD) […]

A well camouflaged zebra

For my undergraduate research project, I studied a rare neurological disease known as Landau-Kleffner Syndrome. It was then that I […]

The Rarest of the Rare

In Europe, a rare disease is defined rare when it affects fewer than 1 in 2,000 people. However, this definition […]

New DNA modification signature found in zebrafish

Researchers at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research have uncovered a new form of DNA modification in the genome of […]

Genetically engineered probiotics

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

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 […]

Clinical utility of exome sequencing in pregnancy loss

A recent study, published in Genetics in Medicine, has explored the clinical utility of exome sequencing for detecting monogenic aetiology […]

Neuritogenesis genes confer risk for cerebral palsy

Researchers using whole-exome sequencing have identified that mutations that disrupt neuritogenesis may confer risk for cerebral palsy. Cerebral palsy Cerebral […]
