By genotyping hundreds of individuals from populations in Sudan and South Sudan, investigators untangled genetic contributions from Eurasian groups migrating into Africa.

UK and Swedish researchers used a Mendelian randomization approach to study the association between serum calcium and heart disease and heart attack risk.

What the Birds Sing

Uppsala University researchers have found that the songs of flycatchers may be genetically determined, according to Agence France Presse.

Short tandem repeat and expression data indicate that the U87MG cell line in the ATCC collection no longer represents the glioma from which it was established.

An international research team resequenced the genomes of 50 orcas to learn how genetics influenced the evolution of the species' different ecotypes.

Early results of a study suggest at least some recurrent gene mutations differ by breed for dogs affected by B-cell and/or T-cell lymphomas.

Researchers have identified hundreds of new and known microRNAs in the domestic dog genome, a finding that could contribute to disease research.

Researchers narrowed in on a HMGA2 gene haplotype that became more common in small-beaked medium ground finches competing for food during a drought.

The study found eight potential protein biomarkers differentially expressed in elderly Alzheimer's disease patients, and researchers are planning an expanded study.

The method, developed by scientists at Uppsala University in Sweden, uses antibody-based proximity assays alongside off-the-shelf gene expression assays.
