A fang blenny can painlessly deliver a potent opioid-laced fish venom that can disorient predators that make the mistake of eating them.
Researchers are putting in a lot of effort to conserve the critically threatened parrot species.
Scientists have discovered a set of new genes that were 'born by accident', says a new study.
The first Irish genomes indicate a wealth of information about human migrations and cultures in Ireland.
Genome sequencing of four ancient Irish skeletons indicates a migration between 5,200 years and 4,000 years ago.
In a major breakthrough, scientists have grow the brains and heads of alternate species from a flatworm.
The study suggests that there is a link between foreign DNA and the capacity to live through extreme conditions.
Researchers have completed the first ever genome sequence of a blind myriapod, Strigamia maritima - one of a group of venomous centipedes that are unusual in the way in which they care for their eggs.
Genome sequencing in real time may help control a hospital outbreak, suggests a new study.
A team of researchers identified a biomarker on a gene that can be used to predict the aggressiveness of GS7 prostate cancer.
In an analysis, researchers have found that human, fly and worm genomes are more similar than we would think, according to a new study.
Researchers have reprogrammed the binding of a protein called BuD to DNA in order to redirect it towards specific DNA regions, according to a new study.
Researchers have reportedly discovered the process by which a class of enzymes called CRISPR bind and alter the structure of DNA. The finding is a major step forward in our understanding of how enzymes 'edit' genes.
A new study found that married couples shared very similar DNA with one another.
