Myths and facts

Fake news and misinformation within medicine and healthcare is a serious problem. The advent and popularisation of social media has […]

What Can Biomarker Research Learn from Planetary Science?

Making Space for Biomarker Data Clinical research, particularly cancer diagnostics, has seen an explosion in the collection of biomarker data […]

A modern Egyptian: the first comprehensive Egyptian reference genome

The true value of genomics can only be unravelled with true population-scale sequencing. Understanding genomic variation across populations will help […]

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 […]

Experts say gene editing is too risky

An international commission has stated that we need more research before gene editing can be used in babies and for […]

Sex differences in SARS-CoV-2 immune response

A recent study, published in Nature, has provided evidence that may explain the underlying sex biases that are observed in […]

Gene editing approach eliminates herpes simplex virus in vivo

A recent article, published in Nature Communications, has revealed a gene editing approach that can eliminate levels of latent herpes […]

How genetics and technology could increase human longevity

Advances in healthcare has led to an increasing lifespan. Over time, our bodies gradually accumulate damage to the cells and […]

Webinar: Capture the dark genome – From repeat-expansions to CRISPR unintended mutations

Sequenced genomes retain a surprisingly large number of “dark” regions – sections that have proven difficult to characterise via short-read […]

Base editing outcomes predicted by machine learning model

Single nucleotide variants (SNVs) are implicated in about half of all genetic diseases and so, accurately targeting and editing these […]
