Little and large: Giraffe-type gene edited into mice

Researchers have edited mice with the giraffe-type FGRL1 gene, observing exceptional hypertension resistance and higher bone mineral density. The unique […]

Bacterial strains isolated from the International Space Station

Researchers have discovered three bacterial strains aboard the International Space Station that may help create the fuel to allow plants […]

Guidelines for reporting polygenic risk score

Researchers from NIH have developed a 22-item framework, published in Nature, that has identified the minimal polygenic risk score-related information […]

ADAR1 protects telomeres and supports cancer cell proliferation

Researchers at The Wistar Institute have identified a new function of ADAR1, a protein responsible for RNA editing, discovering that […]

New genetic loci for eye colour identified

An international team of researchers led by King’s College London and Erasmus University Medical Center Rotterdam have discovered 50 new […]

The placenta: A dumping ground for genetic defects

Scientists at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, the University of Cambridge and their collaborators have found that the placenta resembles that […]

Phenotype prediction accuracy limited by negative selection

Using population genetic models, researchers show that negative selection on complex traits limits phenotype prediction accuracy between populations. Phenotype prediction […]

Induced pluripotent stem cells map variants of disease

Scientists have compiled data from induced pluripotent stem cells to link genetic variants to many different diseases. Linking variants Researchers […]

Uncovering Genomic Evidence for Reinfection with SARS-CoV-2: A Case Study

COVID-19 has been the dominating topic of our lives for the past year, with currently over 114 million cases, 65 […]

Hallmarks of environmental insults

We summarise a recent paper, published in Cell, that has proposed eight hallmarks of environmental insults. The intricacies and interactions […]
