Researchers have identified more than 30 genes involved in the development of tails in various species, from an iguana’s long whip to the stub on a Manx cat.
When a mutation happens in the first few weeks of embryonic development, it would be expected to be widespread both in an individual's cells and in those of their offspring.
Genome analysis of Africans shed light on ancient migrations, modern susceptibility, disease resistance
This new research is an attempt to address an imbalance in the genetic data available worldwide, most of which comes from people of European ancestry.
Neanderthal genes passed down makes some people more prone to COVID-19 infection, a new study proposes
The Neanderthal gene was found highest in Bangladeshi ancestry, with 63 percent of its population carrying at least one copy of the risk variant.
Can your genes make you more vulnerable to coronavirus? Researchers find strong link between severe COVID-19 symptoms and the human genome
Can your genes make you more vulnerable to COVID-19? It has been about 6 months since the first case of COVID-19 showed up in Wuhan, China. Since then the scientific community has learnt a lot about this disease and its causative virus SARS-CoV-2.
The efficiency of this test depends on the adequate collection of the viral RNA which is extracted from the throat of patients.
Sex differences in the frequency, severity and treatment efficacy for many diseases, not just COVID-19, were pointed out long ago.
In spite of many viruses existing in animal hosts, it is rare for spillovers to happen since many factors need to align at the right time.
Immune response from Australia's first COVID-19 cases shows body's ability to fight and recover from virus
More than 80 percent of COVID-19 cases are mild-to-moderate, understanding the immune response in these cases are important for research.
For the study, scientists used Arabidopsis thaliana — a small flowering plant in the mustard family .
Researchers find genes of mysterious human species that interbred with Africans thousands of years ago
Not much is known about this ghost population other than they seemed to diverge from the evolutionary line around 650,000 years ago.
Oncologists now take genetic tests as an important tool for diagnosis and treatment planning of cancer and its management.
Different genetic signatures between children's type 1 diabetes distinguishes it from adults' type 1.5
Latent autoimmune diabetes in adults is often also known as 'type 1.5 diabetes' as it consists of both Type 1and Type 2 diabetes.
The study helps confirm traces of certain genes' risk factors when it comes to mental health disorders.

New polygenic scores are calculated form hundreds and thousands of genetic markers from one's DNA
India and the Indian: Genes are the root of nationalism but don't determine our destiny, writes Praveen Swami
Animal impulses drive powerful nationalism, but their triumph is far from inevitable if humans are willing to carefully reflect on why we behave in the ways we do.
Researchers found a link between women most likely to develop cancer and a micro-gene in their DNA.
