A lot of research can happen in a week and with everything going on at the moment, it can be […]

Data sharing at risk due to lack of public trust

The largest ever survey looking at global public perceptions of genomic data sharing suggests that more work is needed to […]

Young people can make informed decisions about genome sequencing

A recent study, published in the European Journal of Medical Genetics, has explored the understanding, attitudes and involvement in decision-making […]

GTEx project sheds light on gene expression

Scientists from the Genotype-Tissue Expression (GTEx) project have completed a range of studies documenting how small changes in the DNA […]

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 […]
