Latest Gene Stories
For a long time, scientists have dreamt of converting undesirable white fat cells into brown fat cells and thus simply have excess pounds melt away.
An international research team including Christian Schlötterer and Alistair McGregor of the Vetmeduni Vienna has discovered a completely new mechanism by which evolution can change the appearance of an organism.
The spleen is rarely noticed, until it is missing.
A structural biologist at the Florida State University College of Medicine has made discoveries that could lead scientists a step closer to understanding how life first emerged on Earth billions of years ago.
New research into ageing processes, based on modern genetic techniques, confirms theoretical expectations about the correlation between reproduction and lifespan.
They may be responsible for everything in your life, from conception to death, but you do not own your own genes, legally speaking.
In a new discovery that represents a major step in solving a critical design challenge, Arizona State University Professor Hao Yan has led a research team to produce a wide variety of 2-D and 3-D structures that push the boundaries of the burgeoning field of DNA nanotechnology.
Certain diseases are caused by single gene mutations, and with current techniques for identifying the disease-causing gene producing hundreds of potential gene candidates, it is difficult for scientists to pinpoint the single causative gene.
Customers of polyDNA were recently asked to reveal who recommended that they use Gene-Eden-VIR against HPV, Herpes and Other viruses. Rochester, NY (PRWEB) March
Predictability is often used synonymously with “boring,” as in that story or that outcome was so predictable.
A Knockout Mouse is a genetically engineered mouse in which researchers have inactivated, or “knocked out,” an existing gene by replacing it or disrupting it with an artificial piece of DNA. The loss of gene activity frequently causes changes in a mouse’s phenotype, which includes appearance, behavior, or other apparent and biochemical characteristics. Knockout mice are significant animal models for studying the role of genes which have been sequenced but whose functions haven’t...
