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.
Gene-editing is "not yet ready" to be tried safely and effectively in human embryos, says panel of experts
Genome editing on embryos should not be used to create a pregnancy unless it has been "clearly established" that the changes can be made without also making "undesired changes".
Scientists discover that 'competition' between mitochondrial DNA in a cell decides which variant prevails
The study shows that cells can analyze which mtDNA genome would be best suited for the metabolic needs of a specific cell type.
COVID-19 origin: University of Calgary research shows SARS-CoV-2 may have been evolving slowly since 2013
Scientists at the University of Calgary in Canada say that the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) may have been circulating amongst humans since at least 2013, though not the same variant that is responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic
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.
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.
The study offers the clearest glimpse yet into the genetic underpinnings of same-sex sexual behavior.
It could give scientists clues about how to combat cancer & age-related diseases that come from genetic mutations.
The researchers examined those night-vision genes in many mammals and reptiles, including snakes, alligators, mice, platypuses and humans.
The cancer genome browser on the BlackBerry Passport gives oncologists a tool to view individual genetic alternations in a disease and allows them to highlight relevant treatment options.
