Understanding our evolution can tell us a lot about the health challenges we face today.
Researchers are exploring the genetic differences that dictate why some people suffer greater pain than others, and how to translate these findings into personalized pain treatments.
We now have the capacity to quickly and cheaply sequence an individual's genome and scour it for disease-causing genes. But how much, and what type, of information does a parent-to-be want to know?
There is value in including different populations in genetic research studies as has been shown in a study on exfoliation syndrome, which leads to glaucoma.
Up to 50% of the people who take the efavirenz antiretroviral react particularly badly to it and need to change drug regimens.
Cracking genetic responses to the changing environment in Africa would open a new frontier in the drive against rising non-communicable diseases on the continent.
Scientists of all kinds turn to computer models to investigate questions they can't get at any other way. Here's how models work and why we can trust them.
Nearly 60% of the genetic risk of developing autism may be due to inherited genetic variants, according to US researchers…
