Researchers aim to study cell functions, particularly cancer cells, under zero gravity conditions.
Will you survive chemotherapy? A new study suggests that it all depends on your genes.
Researchers from the United Kingdom develop a new DNA test that could tell people whether or not the they have the genetic makeup to withstand high intensity and high stamina training, like long distance running.
Not only can weight loss surgery reduce body weight, it can also lead to gene-expression alterations in obese individuals, a new study as revealed.
Scientists report that new genetically modified rats might make research into Alzheimer's disease better due to the similarity between the mutations of these rats and those of patients.
Scientists found that there might be underlying genetic factors tied to being lazy.
Four new genes and increased rare structural variations in genetic material have been linked to severe childhood obesity.
In the battle of the sexes, men are bound to lose, a scientist has predicted. That is, males will sooner or later go extinct.
Stanford University researchers announced this week that they've created genetic receptors that can act as a sort of "biological computer," a major step forward in the emerging field of synthetic biology.
Researchers have for the first time mapped out the enzyme known as the "fountain of youth".
Researchers found a relationship between the genes linked to obesity and aging, and the development of osteoarthritis.
Just a week of sleeping for less than 6 hours a night is enough to disrupt the functioning of hundreds of genes, according to a new study.
As access to genetic testing continues to expand and interest in genetics and genomics rises, groups representing pediatricians and geneticists issued new recommendations on Thursday when it comes to testing a child's DNA for genetic conditions.
New research done by the University of Michigan reveals the relationship between cold air and the receptor channel, TRPA-1. The TRPA-1 receptor apparently gets triggered by the cold air and starts a chain reaction resulting in the activation of the longevity gene. This research is still limited to roundworms, but the fact that these mechanisms also exist in humans suggests that cold air can lead to loner lifespans for humans as well.
An Australian court ruled today that it is possible to patent genes.
