Molecule Reverses Some Fragile X Syndrome Defects
Scientists have designed a compound that shows promise as a potential therapy for one of the diseases closely linked to fragile X syndrome, a genetic condition that causes mental retardation, infertility, and memory impairment, and is the only known single-gene cause of autism

Gene Regulation's Role in Predisposing Us to Common Diseases
Genetic disease risk between one individual and another are based on complex origins that may reflect differences in the genes or differences in the regions regulating these genes
