The relationship between DNA methylation and disease

By carrying out a genome-wide association study, researchers have uncovered novel mechanisms linking DNA methylation and disease. Their findings greatly […]

sedaDNA reveals woolly mammoths persisted 5,000 years ago

Recently, researchers used DNA capture-enrichment technology to present a 30,000-year sedaDNA record derived from preserved permafrost silts in Canada. They […]

Sequencing of DNA in the bone marrow can predict leukaemia relapse

DNA sequencing-based detection of residual disease has been found to accurately predict which acute lymphoblastic leukaemia patients will eventually relapse. […]

Is the use of artificial genomic DNA the future?

For the first time, researchers have combined an artificial DNA replication scheme with a reconstructed gene expression system using cell-free […]

Fixing DNA disorganisation to treat rare diseases

Researchers have revealed the usefulness of a structural protein in potentially diagnosing and treating a variety of genetic disorders linked […]

Environmental DNA (eDNA) is helping to explore the deep ocean

Researchers have found that environmental DNA (eDNA) concentrations can be used to reliably reveal information about migration patterns of organisms […]

Evolution of mutations can be predicted by DNA tangles

New research has revealed evolutionary hotspots in DNA tangles where mutations are more likely to occur. Mutational hotspots Mutational hotspots […]

Mitochondrial DNA is released by cigarette smoke

In a recent study, researchers have discovered that mitochondrial DNA is released extracellularly upon exposure to cigarette smoke and in […]

Genetics Unzipped podcast: A brief history of DNA sequencing

In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, presenter Dr Kat Arney takes a look at how we learned to read […]

Cell-Free DNA Can be Used To Detect Lung Cancer

Current lung cancer screening methods are invasive and inaccessible, with only at-risk patients currently being offered screening Now, in a […]
