A discovery of how to build little blocks out of DNA and get them to stick to lipids has implications for biosensing and mRNA vaccines.
Viral fossils buried in DNA may protect against future virus infections, a new marsupial study suggests.
The DNA sequencing of a healthy German shepherd will mean dogs can be screened for hip and other diseases much more accurately.
We discover how DNA sequencing machines read genomes with the Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics Deputy Director Dr Helen Speirs at UNSW Sydney.
Emerging evidence suggests that prolonged stress exposure can accelerate the ticking rate of an internal cellular clock. By doing so, stress can contribute to faster ageing and body deterioration.
What is cancer – the deadly disease that affects the lives of millions of people around the world each year? And… why do some people get it, and others not?
Although people can reduce their chance of getting cancer by making healthy lifestyle choices, unfortunately it is not possible to completely prevent it... and scientists are still not entirely sure why.
Once genetic lesions for diseases such as cystic fibrosis and haemophilia were identified, the idea of replacing or correcting defective genes grew into what we now call "gene therapy".
A major study of dingo DNA has revealed the animals most likely migrated to Australia in two separate waves – a find with significant implications for their conservation.
An international study has provided compelling evidence that we inherit more than a DNA blueprint from our mothers and fathers – we also inherit vital instructions on how to use this blueprint.
