The research team from North Carolina University identified an interesting switch for alcohol tolerance.
Genetically Modified Plants "on the loose": a first evidence of GM plants on the wild according to scientists
The first evidence of genetically engineered plants growing in the wild has been found and reported by a team of scientists conducting research in North Dakota.
Another piece of the puzzle that is breast cancer has been found by University of Queensland researchers.
A new study from the University of Missouri may shed light on how to increase the level and quality of activity in the elderly.
A new cancer gene has been discovered by a research group at the Sahlgrenska Academy.
A number of congenital disorders characterized by low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) as a result of excessive secretion of the hormone insulin are collectively known as congenital hyperinsulinism.
Scientists at the University of Bonn have discovered a previously unknown fruit fly gene that controls the metabolism of fat. Larvae in which this gene is defective lose their entire fat reserves.
Discovery Made Using New Systems Biology Method, Which Enabled the Scientists to Pinpoint the Genes from a Mass of Data
Like doctors making house calls, some DNA repair enzymes can relocate to the part of the cell that needs their help, a collaborative team of scientists at Emory University School of Medicine has found.
Scientists have identified 12 new genes that are somewhat strange bedfellows: Some link gallstones and blood cholesterol levels, others link melatonin and sleep patterns to small increases in glucose levels and larger jumps in the risk of diabetes
By lending them a gene normally reserved for other classes of animals, researchers have shown they can rescue flies from their Parkinson's-like symptoms...
Forensic genetics is the branch of genetics that, through DNA analysis and comparison, deals with the resolution of legal problems such as paternity tests.
Scientists are beginning to unravel the question why people distinctly vary in size.
Researchers at Uppsala University, together with colleagues at the Karolinska Institute and the Sanger Institute, have now found all the genes the determine the dosage of the blood-thinning drug warfarin.
An international study of 20,000 people found seven new genes that influence blood cholesterol levels, a major factor in heart disease, and confirmed 11 other genes previously thought to influence cholesterol.
A cross showing incomplete dominance.
A good review of the common terms in Genetics
The field of epigenetics is an emerging area. It aims to strengthen the genome based therapeutics.
An overview, benefits and methodology of HGP
Researchers investigating the biochemical characteristics behind several everyday diseases have discovered a new chromosomal region to be strongly associated with the bad cholesterol
