Latest Genetic linkage Stories
Researchers from the University College London recently revealed that they had identified over 200 genes for Crohn’s Disease, a chronic bowel condition.
The study, published yesterday in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), looked at how genes on sex-linked chromosomes are passed down generations and linked to fertility, using the specific example of the W chromosome in female chickens.
The genetics responsible for frequency-specific hearing loss have remained elusive until recently, when genetic loci were found that affected high-frequency hearing.
In a dog-eat-dog world of ruthless competition and 'survival of the fittest,' new research from the University of Leicester reveals that individuals are genetically programmed to work together and cooperate with those who most resemble themselves.
With a 95 percent genomic similarity to humans, mice have long been used to learn about the genetic causes of human disease.
