The new technique, dubbed DNA microscopy, uses only a pipette and some liquid reagents. The results are absolutely breathtaking. Cells shine like stars in a nebula, each pseudo-colored according to their genomic profiles.
Research funded by NASA has led to the creation of an entirely new flavor of the DNA double helix, one that has an additional four nucleotide bases. It's being called hachimoji DNA.
The study showed that scientists can determine to what extent surrounding areas of the host DNA have been affected by gene splicing.
New research suggests men in their child-bearing years should consider how THC could impact their sperm and possibly the children they conceive during periods when they've been using the drug.
A Chinese researcher claims that he helped make the world's first genetically edited babies—twin girls born this month whose DNA he said he altered with a powerful new tool capable of rewriting the very blueprint of life.
Scientists have discovered a new technique that can leave out particular sections of a gene, essentially 'skipping' them. New method, called CRISPR-SKIP, could be used to control how genes are expressed and regulated.
A new discovery about the effects of aging in our cells could allow doctors to cure or prevent diabetes, fatty liver disease and other metabolic diseases—and possibly even turn back the clock on aging itself.
An international team has developed a novel tool to accurately predict eye, hair and skin color from human biological material, even a small DNA sample.
In the largest genomic sequencing effort of all time, international researchers will collect and sequence the DNA of Earth’s 1.5 million known eukaryotes, the domain of organisms that includes animals, plants, and fungi.
For the first time ever, scientists have identified the existence of a new DNA structure that looks more like a twisted, four-stranded knot than the double helix we all know from high school biology.
In a review article a prominent scientist calls for more integration between two fields of DNA-based research: genetics and epigenetics.
This month, the Estonian government kicks off a program that aims to collect the DNA of 100,000 of its 1.3 million residents. In return, it will offer them lifestyle and health advice based on their genetics.
