  • Ovarian cancer-specific markers set the stage for early diagnosis, personalized treatments

    Six mRNA isoforms (bits of genetic material) produced by ovarian cancer cells but not normal cells have been identified by scientists, opening up the possibility that they could be used to diagnose early-stage ovarian cancer. What's more, several of the m...  more
  • Smartphone-based device could provide rapid, low-cost molecular tumor diagnosis

    A new device may bring rapid, accurate molecular diagnosis of tumors and other diseases to locations lacking the latest medical technology. The devise is a smartphone-based device that uses the kind of technology used to make holograms to collect detailed...  more
  • A good night's sleep keeps your stem cells young

    Environmental stress is a major factor in driving DNA damage in adult hematopoietic stem cells, researchers have found, concluding that a good night's sleep keeps your stem cells "young."
  • Data-storage for eternity, stored in the form of DNA

    How can we preserve our knowledge today for the next millennia? Researchers have found a way to store information in the form of DNA, presumably preserving it for nearly an eternity.
  • Two experimental DNA vaccines to prevent Ebola virus and the closely relate

    Two experimental DNA vaccines to prevent Ebola virus and the closely related Marburg virus are safe, and generated a similar immune response in healthy Ugandan adults as reported in healthy US adults earlier this year. The findings are from the first tria...  more
  • Frankfurter fraud: Finding out what's in your hot dog

    Hot dogs are the perfect summer fare. But knowing for sure what you're getting inside a bun can be difficult. Now scientists have devised a method that could help prevent frankfurter fraud, which is especially important for those who can't eat certain typ...  more
  • New biochip-based blood test detects elevated risk for Alzheimer’s disease

    Researchers have unveiled results from a new blood test to help identify which patients are at an elevated risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The findings showed that the biochip test, which allows multiple tests to be run on one blood sample, was as accurate a...  more
  • What’s changed in genetics since your high school biology class?

    The field of genetics has seen astonishing breakthroughs and the development of world-changing technologies in the past half century.
  • Genetic links to educational attainment identified

    Researchers have identified 74 areas of the human genome associated with educational attainment. It is well known that social and other environmental factors influence education, but these findings suggest that large genetics analyses may be able to help ...  more
  • New study explains why you bulk up with resistance training, not endurance training

    Resistance and endurance exercises activate the same gene, PGC-1 α, but the processes stimulated for the muscles to adapt depend on the exercise type. A new study offers insight into why the physical changes from resistance exercise are so different than ...  more
