Researchers in New York, leveraging on artificial intelligence techniques,  have demonstrated that mutations in so-called 'junk' DNA can cause autism .This study is the first to functionally link such mutations to the neurodevelopmental condition. Led by Olga Troyanskaya , deputy director for genomics at the Flatiron Institute's Center for Computational Biology (CCB) in New Yor...

The discovery of a new way to target and treat the leading genetic contributor to Parkinson's may open the way for a potential new clinical treatment. Researchers from Oxford's Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics (DPAG) have identified how the dysfunction of a key gene, LRRK2, causes the neurons affected in Parkinson's to lose their ability to effectively clear out cell c...

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a long medical name for the most common form of liver cancer, a malignancy whose incidence has nearly doubled over the past decade, making it the fastest growing type of cancer in the U.S., and the third-leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), an affiliate of City of Hope, provide the...

Scientists explored mRNA and protein public databases to unravel hidden meanings of the genetic code. Using a metric derived from mRNA codon composition, they found out how gene sequence choice can predict different aspects of protein synthesis, such as protein production efficiency. The study could help the development of new biotechnological applications of genes and proteins. Today, thousand...

In the largest genetic study of osteoarthritis to date, scientists have uncovered 52 new genetic changes linked to the disease, which doubles the number of genetic regions associated with the disabling condition. Scientists at the Wellcome Sanger Institute, GSK and their collaborators analysed the genomes of over 77,000 people with osteoarthritis. Their findings, published  in Nature ...
