Scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School have made a huge breakthrough in our understanding of Down's syndrome.
Researchers with the UC Davis MIND Institute and Agilent Laboratories have found that Prader-Willi syndrome — a genetic disorder best known for causing an insatiable appetite that can lead to morbid obesity — is associated with the loss of non-coding RNAs, resulting in the dysregulation of circadian and metabolic genes, accelerated energy expenditure and metabolic differences during sleep.
The study reveals how a genetic duplication that occurred millions of years ago encouraged the evolution of the ASF1b gene, involved in cancer development
Human Argonautes (hAgo), are key proteins involved in a process known as RNA interference.
A new method of manufacturing short, single-stranded DNA molecules can solve many of the problems associated with current production methods.
