Listening to audio derived from DNA may help scientists better understand how cell biology works.
Converting a DNA sequence into an audio could help us learn something useful about it, like where mutations occur.
Laboratory mice are among the first animals to have their diseases treated by CRISPR.

A new research paper reports dangerous side effects in CRISPR-edited mice. Some scientists are pushing back, placing blame for the unwanted mutations on the experiment, not the technique.
It’s naive to pretend there are no profound genetic and epigenetic differences between the sexes.

What produces the differences between men and women? Are they trivial or profound? Are they genetic or environmental, or both? And are men really closer genetically to chimpanzees than to women?
BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene mutations prompted Angelina Jolie to have a preventative double mastectomy and surgery to remove both ovaries.
What if you could take a simple test to reveal your individual risk of developing a range of cancers and hundreds of other diseases?
Jolie Pitt has announced she has had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed to mitigate cancer risk.
Jolie Pitt has announced more surgery, this time to mitigate her risk of developing ovarian cancer. But this should ideally not have the same "Jolie effect" as her last operation.
A newly discovered genetic mutation leads to a reduction in certain proteins in the brain which causes intellectual disabilities…
Angelina Jolie should be seen as a model for seeking information about her options and making a decision that best suited her.
Angelina Jolie’s recent announcement about her double mastectomy likely caused many women to think about their own chance of developing breast cancer. But before you rush off to have a bunch of possibly…
The BRCA1 gene is thought to account for 45% of hereditary breast cancer, and at least 80% of hereditary cancer involving both breast and ovarian cancers.
“The issue that arises in this case is of considerable importance. It relates to the patentability of genes, or gene sequences, and the practice of gene patenting”. So began the reasons for judgement of…
Men play an equal, if not larger, role in passing on genetic mutations to their children.
We all know about the reproductive “biological clock” in women reminding them of the finite time in which they can have children. Now researchers have found evidence that men also have a reproductive “best…
