Artificial tRNAs may allow cells to read through premature stop codons and treat genetic diseases, New Scientist reports.

Common honeybee viruses were present at low levels in most wild-caught bees from Iowa, but did not produce obvious mortality changes in the non-honeybee species.

The company is testing a database solution that will help clinical researchers store, manage, and analyze variant information ahead of full launch this quarter.

The study hints that iPSCs derived from patients with the hereditary disease could be edited ex vivo and reintroduced to fix damaged retinas.

With the NIH funding, the researchers hope to gain new insights into the genetic causes of language impairment in various developmental and disease contexts.

The funding will be used to study the genetic and molecular composition of neuroendocrine tumors, and to develop new diagnosis and treatment strategies.
