Studies find CRISPR gene-editing of human embryos give rise to unwanted results.

CRISPR gene-editing is a technique that allows the genomes of living organisms to be modified. Naturally, this has been looked […]

Discovery of UFO proteins – the product of virus-human hybrid genes.

Researchers have shown that a large group of viruses, including influenza viruses and other pathogens, steal host genetic signals to […]

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 […]

Study finds chemokine receptor inhibition can overcome immune hyperactivation in COVID-19 patients

A new single-cell analysis study of airway samples of COVID-19 patients has found that drugs targeting chemokine receptors may be […]

New class of precision oncology drug strips cancer of its DNA defences

Damage to the DNA in cells is the root cause of cancer, but it is also a weakness of the […]
