Acute myeloid leukemia (AML) is a group of heterogeneous diseases with considerable diversity in terms of genetic abnormalities.
Researchers studying Icelanders discovered an intricate pathway involving the interspersed DNA sequence, or non-coding region, of a gene that is among a few dozen that are associated with human pigmentation traits.
A genetic defect that profoundly affects speech in humans also disrupts the ability of songbirds to sing effective courtship tunes.
A class of drugs used to treat parasitic infections such as malaria may also be useful in treating cancers and immune-related diseases.
A new study by Weill Cornell Medical College scientists reveals a mechanism through which the expression of genes is controlled -- a finding that highlights genetic mutations that can impair the timing of gene expression.

What makes facial morphology so distinct? Genetics obviously plays a major role, as is evident in the similarities between parents and children. But scientists are now studying how DNA fine-tunes genetics so that siblings, especially identical twins, resemble one another yet look different from unrelated individuals.
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have developed a new way to parse and understand how special proteins called "master regulators" read the genome, and consequently turn genes on and off.
