Scientists from Northwestern University have developed a new imaging technology that is the first to see DNA “blink,” or fluoresce. This is key to understanding the mechanism at play in relation to different diseases.

British doctors request three-person baby study

Newcastle - British doctors have made a formal request to the national fertility regulator to undertake mitochondrial replacement therapy. This involves creating a baby with DNA from three people.

Rapid method for diagnosing sepsis

Although there are tell-tale signs for sepsis (such as a rise in body temperature and faster breathing), a fast diagnoses is essential. Traditional methods use blood culture, which takes time. To overcome this, a rapid method has been developed.

DNA of unknown human species found in Pacific Islanders

By analyzing the DNA of Pacific Islanders, scientists have discovered clear evidence for the existence of a new, previously unknown human species – a discovery which could change our understanding of human evolution.

Scientists map the ‘dark matter’ of DNA

Saarland - Understanding DNA variations can inform about health risks and it can also provide the basis for personalized medicine. There are still some knowledge gaps — which some call the ‘dark matter' of DNA.
