No bones? No problem!
A simple analysis of fish DNA in water drawn from two New York rivers successfully tracked the presence or absence of numerous species during a spring marine migration, according to research published Wednesday.
Scientists are getting closer to building life from scratch and technology pioneers are taking notice, with record sums moving into a field that could deliver novel drugs, materials, chemicals and even perfumes.
Researchers have grown “mini brains” — small three-dimensional tissues which resemble the structure and organisation of the developing human brain — to study complicated brain disorders and discover novel treatment options.
Cancer patients often wonder “why me?” Does their tumor run in the family? Did they try hard enough to avoid risks like smoking, too much sun or a bad diet?
A common gene variant has been discovered in about one-third of the population that may explain why some people’s brains age faster than others, US researchers said Wednesday.
Scientists have taken a big step toward designing complex forms of life from scratch by constructing five new artificial chromosomes of baker’s yeast, representing a third of the micro-organism’s genome, or genetic blueprint.
Researchers have identified a genetic ‘switch’ that may help prevent or delay the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
Researchers have developed hens that do not produce their own chicks and can be used as surrogates to lay eggs from rare breeds.
Global Gene Corp and Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH) on Tuesday launched the first-ever beacon for Indian genomics data, which is expected to help scientists develop more effective drug delivery systems.
