Study shows that removing the protein IGF2BP3 slows cancer growth and increases chances of survival of rare types of leukaemia in mice.
Researchers have discovered a therapeutic agent that is effective in vitro at disrupting a biological pathway that helps cancer survive.
US researchers used an AAV9 vector to edit a single base mutation in a prenatal mouse model, halting progression of Hurler syndrome.
Dr Robert Hewitt explains why the need of biospecimen brokers to protect their commercially-sensitive information can result in significant issues for industry end-users and the results of their research.
Following a whole exome sequencing study, researchers have found that mutations in the SLITRK5 gene could be targeted by drugs to treat OCD.
A study has shown that blocking the gene expression of MAGEA3 in liver cancer cells prevents the tumour from proliferating.
Advances in genomic medicine are playing an increasingly important role in the field of cardiology. Better analysis and understanding of patient genomic and epigenomic information can enable more personalised patient treatment and medical intervention. Here, Professor John Giannios considers the potential to use genomic medicine to prevent, monitor, diagnose and…

Researchers created their new method to analyse chromosomes in 3D, revealing how misconfigurations play a role in cancer.
Combining two genomic methodologies, researchers have shown that pancreatic exocrine cells are implicated in type 1 diabetes.
Researchers have revealed which genes are switched on or off in osteocytes, a bone cell found in the skeleton.
A CRISPR-Cas9 method has been used to identify which genes play a role in repairing zebrafish spinal cord injuries.
