The buccal epithelial cell-based epigenetic clock corresponded with age in those under 20, but skewed slightly higher in a small subset of children with autism spectrum disorder.

A new sequencing-based method developed by Duke University's Kate Meyer is one of several that can detect RNA methylation without the use of antibodies.

Researchers identified variants in the germline that appear to influence DNA methylation levels in prostate cancer tumors or in precancerous tissues.

The firm is part of a research consortium that is led by Mount Sinai and includes Fluidigm to develop a device to detect epigenetic signatures of WMD exposure.

Denisovans, an extinct group of humans, likely shared some anatomical traits with Neanderthals and humans but also had some that were specific to them.

According to Gizmodo, researchers have developed a list of a million nucleic acid-like polymers that could store genetic information.

Fluorescent proteins or self-labeling tags are invaluable tools for studying protein dynamics in living cells using fluorescence microscopy. However, quantitative imaging requires physiological levels of expression of the target protein of interest (POI), especially when stoichiometric interactions of the POI need to be investigated.
