The two world powers have reportedly been working together on a series of controversial experiments.
Interbreeding with ancient humans means ancient genetic fragments still shaping heads of some Europeans
The AuthaGraph map is the most accurate map you’ll ever see. You probably won’t like it.
Dinosaurs could potentially walk among us in real life soon as the paleontologist who inspired the original Jurassic Park movie has announced a research project to bring the extinct creatures back to life. Dr. Jack Horner says scientists are only 5to 10 years away from genetically engineering dinosaurs into existence.
The key to the improvement is keeping device components high and dry
Using as little as 1 picogram of purified DNA sample (think 2.5 trillion times lighter than a penny), scientists at the University of Brisbane have developed a method that permits the swift detection of cancer DNA in a patient sample of cell-free DNA, which circulates systemically. These researchers took advantage of the finding that cancers have drastically different patterns of methylation on their genomic sequences than normal cells. These endow the DNA with unique physical properties, including the way in which it can bind to gold nanoparticles. Using this system, a color-change of a mixture comprised of DNA, gold nanoparticles, and a salt solution is the readout for presence or absence of methylation patterns that are indicative of cancerous DNA.
Jiankui He shocked the world with news his team had created the first genetically modified twin girls. Now he says there may be more on the way.
In films like Armageddon, Hollywood has tried (and failed) to take on the question of what would happen if a comet or asteroid plunged into the oceans on Earth, but what has scientific research actually determined it may look like?
Researchers say similar protein to royalactin in humans builds up ‘self-renewal’ stem cells
