How to spot the differences between dimples, blue eyes, and purple cities

Dimples are the most common form of skin disease, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Warwick. But what’s more important to the sufferer is how they appear.The researchers, led by Dr Rebecca Gossman, have now revealed what makes blue eyes and purple city genetics so different from one another.The researchers used the Hemoglobin […]

How genetic heterogeneity in the genomes of humans has led to a range of clinical disorders

Genome-wide studies of the genomes across the human population have shown a range.However, it has been difficult to tease apart the role of common variants in these genetic differences.The study of genome-wide variation in clinical disorders such as schizophrenia, obesity and autism raises new questions.The team at the University of Cambridge has now tackled these […]

How is epilepsy genetic? Genetic mosaicism of epilepsy and related disorders

Genetic variations of epilepsy are common and can be seen in the eyes of those with the disease, but are also common in the genomes of those who are unaffected by it.The genetic variations of the condition can also cause eye problems, such as retinal detachment or corneal cancer.The conditions also often involve multiple inherited […]

How to help an agroecologist’s research with the genome

A genetic bottleneck at an agribusiness company means scientists are still trying to figure out how to treat and protect the genomes of the crops they’re working on.And that could take years of research, a new study shows.Genetic bottleneck means scientists have fewer genes that make it into plants and more genes that are in […]

Genetic drift could boost stocks of protein-based medicines

Genetic drift is causing stocks of medicines and drugs to show up in stocks of older medicines, which are often more expensive than the newer drugs.The problem is most acute in proteins, which contain the building blocks of life.This could lead to the introduction of cheaper versions of older versions of the same drug.A study […]
