Fetal stress disrupts the way genes are transmitted
New research suggests that a disruption of genetic imprinting often happens prenatally, implicating fetal stressors as long-term risk factor for chronic disease.

Reprogramming cells while improving their function
The enormous promise of regenerative medicine is matched by equally enormous challenges. But a new finding has the potential to improve both the safety and performance of reprogrammed cells.

Understanding the effects of genes on humans
Montreal scientists have developed a new approach for scanning the entire genome that will help explain the effect of genes on human traits.

Genetic glitch at the root of allergies
Faulty TGF-beta signaling, well known for its roles in conditions like Marfan and Loeys-Dietz syndromes, may also be responsible for disrupting the way immune cells respond to common foods and environmental allergens, leading to a wide range of allergic disorders.

Naked mole-rat's secret to cancer free long life
Mice and rats have long been a standard animal model for cancer research, mainly due to their short lifespan of four years on average and high incidence of cancer. Naked mole rats however, live for 30 years and are cancer free.

Stem cell gene therapy hopes to prevent inherited neurological disease
Scientists from The University of Manchester have used stem cell gene therapy to treat a fatal genetic brain disease in mice for the first time.

Premature aging in joints of kids with chronic arthritis
The joints of children with the most common form of chronic inflammatory arthritis contain immune cells that resemble those of 90-year-olds, according to a new study led by researchers at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC and the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

Evolution of sex-determination in mammals
Researchers at Case Western Reserve University's School of Medicine have found that a genetic process common to many species of rodents might be significant to the pace of human evolution.

Reprogramming patients' cells for studying, treating rare blood diseases
CHOP researchers advance stem cell studies in a childhood leukemia and diamond blackfan anemia using human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) that are capable of developing into many or even all human cell types, and were only first produced in the past decade.

‘Dead’ gene comes to life, puts chill on inflammation
A gene long presumed dead comes to life under the 'full moon' of inflammation, Stanford University School of Medicine scientists find.

Ultrasensitive calcium shines light on neural activity
A new protein engineered by scientists at the Janelia Farm Research Campus fluoresces brightly each time it senses calcium, giving scientists a way to visualize neural activity.

Toxic protein buildup contributes to major diseases
By boosting the activity of one protein in neurons sensitive to the mutant huntingtin protein, Gladstone scientists artificially accelerated autophagy and prolonged neural cell survival — a result with potential for other brain disorders.

Computing the "Rules of the Forest"
A forest full of rabbits and foxes, a bubbling vat of chemical reactants, complex biochemical circuitry within a cell, all are to a computer similar systems. Many scenarios play out depending on a fixed set of rules and interactions that can't precisely be predicted — without the right algorithm.

26 autism genes suggest their role in the cerebellum
A team of scientists has intriguing insights into two groups of autism genes with evidence suggesting the 26 are functionally and spatially related.

Neuroscientists plant false memories in the brain
MIT study also pinpoints where the brain stores memory traces, both false and authentic.
