A treatment that alters gene expression overcame chemotherapy resistance and resulted in complete remission in a mouse model of acute myeloid leukemia.
Investigators have discovered that template-free Cas9 editing is predictable, and they have developed a machine learning model that can predict insertions and deletions with high accuracy.
After exploring every possible correlation, researchers shed new light on a long-standing question about what triggers cell division.
Stroke risk depends on many factors, some of which are genetic and some lifestyle-related. So, can lifestyle changes outweigh the genetic risk?
Freckles are flat, brown marks that appear on a person’s skin. Sun exposure and genetics can cause freckles. People with light-colored skin and eyes are more likely to get freckles.

While researchers do not know exactly what causes rheumatoid arthritis (RA), they do know that heredity plays a role. Learn more about RA and genetics here.
The genetic traits that we inherit may indeed influence how long we are likely to live. But are they the most important factor? A new study investigates.
Researchers establish that a cellular pathway that protects the brain against damage is disrupted in Parkinson’s disease. Two enzymes play key roles.
New research has identified a key factor in the case of a progressive form of hair loss that starts in early childhood. The main culprit is a mutated gene.
A new study shows that embryonic cells retain a memory of the chemical signals to which they are exposed. Without these memories, cells fail organize into distinct tissue types.
