Scientists have identified the molecular consequences of a previously undefined genetic mutation. This mutation interferes with the functioning of the mitochondria, known as the powerhouses
The discovery of a genetic switch that triggers stem cells to turn into heart cells is a major step in finding treatment for damaged hearts.
In a new study published March 22nd, 2018 in PLOS Genetics, Anina Bauer of the University of Bern and a large international research team, report
Results from at-home genetic tests are not always accurate. A new study now shows that up to 40 percent of direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetic tests provide
An international study has shown that mating between domesticated dogs and wild wolves over hundreds of years has left a genetic mark on the wolf
Scientists have developed the first laboratory test that picks up traces of manatees’ genetic material in waterways. The environmental DNA test shows whether one or
Fish, mice and likely all modern-day vertebrates share genetic elements first used to develop the unpaired dorsal fin in ancient fish. They later copied these
U.S. Geological Survey scientists have developed the first laboratory test that can pick up traces of manatees’ genetic material in the waterways where they live.
Researchers have identified a genetic variant that could improve the safety and effectiveness of corticosteroids, drugs that are used to treat a range of common
Researchers have found a way to search genetic data in electronic health records to identify undiagnosed genetic diseases in large populations so treatments can be
