Genetics & Genomics Research & Discovery

The latest research news in genetics and genomics.

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.

The method could prove useful both for studying tumor immunology and in the development of cancer immunotherapies, said one of the researchers.

The system uses the Cas13 nuclease to identify target sites in various RNA viruses and then destroy them.

The companies are collaborating to return actionable genetic information to all participants of the Project Baseline Health Study.

University of Virginia researchers are exploring a genetic risk test to gauge type 1 diabetes risk, NPR reports.

In PNAS this week: researchers compare two high-grade neuroendocrine lung cancers, height among ancient Europeans, and more.

In PLOS this week: preconception carrier screening program results, comparative genomics-based analysis of Elizabethkingia meningoseptica, and more.

Canadian regulators are beginning to share information from new drug studies, Undark reports.

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.
