Chinese scientist He claims he helped make world's first genetically edited babies: twin girls whose DNA he said he altered. He revealed it Monday, Nov. 26, in Hong Kong to one of the organizers of an international conference on gene editing. (AP Photo/Mark Schiefelbein)

Scientist created World’s first genetically edited babies

A Chinese scientist has created the world's first genetically edited babies- twin girls by altering DNA using a new tool capable of rewriting the very blueprint...
In the largest genetic study of Alzheimer's disease, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the University of California, San Francisco, have found that genes that increase risk of cardiovascular disease also heighten the risk for Alzheimer’s.

Cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s genetically linked

An international team of scientists has identified DNA from almost 1.5 million people and identified points of DNA that appear to be involved both in cardiovascular disease...

Studies question how epigenetic information is inherited

Many studies in recent years have suggested that our eating regimen, our habits or traumatic experiences can have ramifications for the health of our kids...
A molecular model for regulating Rad51 nucleoprotein filament formation by the Swi5-Sfr1 complex. Swi5–Sfr1 stabilizes Rad51 on ssDNA primarily by preventing its dissociation. This stabilization effect leads to a stable nucleating cluster formation and a reduction in filament disassembly. Red half-arrows indicate the kinetic steps affected by SSwi5–Sfr1.

Scientists unraveling the molecular details of DNA recombination regulation

A worldwide group from National Taiwan University (NTU) and Tokyo Tech distinguished how DNA recombinational repair is directed in an ongoing work distributed in...

Unveiling the mechanism protecting replicated DNA from degradation

Scientists at the Tokyo Metropolitan University have successfully depleted AND-1 for DNA replication. They thus able to increase uncommon access to the mechanism behind how...
A research team from the Cancer Science Institute of Singapore at the National University of Singapore, led by Professor Yoshiaki Ito (left), and involving Senior Research Scientist Dr Vaidehi Krishnan (right), has discovered that RUNX proteins play a part in the regulation of DNA repair.

RUNX proteins act as regulators in DNA repair

Humans are constantly exposed to mutagenic DNA damaging lesions called DNA interstrand crosslinks (ICLs) which can be induced by environmental sources such as formaldehyde,...
