Genetically engineered mice make human embryos more resilient to pneumonia

Mice engineered to resist the deadly coronavirus are making human embryos as well as other animal embryos more resistant to pneumonia, researchers report.In a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers used an innovative method to genetically engineer mice with immune-boosting antibodies and a “non-pneumonic” immune response.They used a modified mouse embryo, called […]

How genetic recombination could lead to a new breed of genetic criminals

By now, it should be pretty obvious that genetic recombining, the process whereby the two genes that are passed down from parent to offspring are swapped, is a big deal.For example, the two main genetic recombinations that occur when two parents pass their DNA to their children are autosomal dominant and recessive, respectively.But while this […]

What we know about obesity genes and their impact on health

Is obesity genetic?A new study from the University of California, Berkeley, reveals that obesity is genetically determined, meaning it’s an inherited trait that can be influenced by diet and exercise.The study, published online in the journal Nature, was led by UC Berkeley senior study author David Himmelstein, an associate professor of anthropology and a member […]

How to deal with migrainous seizures with genetic memory

Genetic memory is a form of genetic memory, and the medical term “genetic epilepsy” is used to describe it.Many people with genetic epilepsy are genetically susceptible to seizures, with some experiencing seizures as early as age 2, but many of these children are not seizure-prone, or are seizure-free after being diagnosed.Some people with severe genetic […]

Baylor’s ‘Invitae’ genetic database could be used to develop new medicines

Baylor University scientists say their genealogy database could provide medicines for the millions of people in the world without access to generic versions.Scientists say they’re already working on ways to build new versions of the “Invitac” genealogical database, which tracks all people who are part of the genealogy of the founders of the United States.“We […]

How to be a bikini bottom without genetic recombination

Genetic recombination occurs when a copy of a gene changes in a different part of the genome.For example, a gene that encodes the neurotransmitter serotonin changes to a gene encoding an enzyme that makes the hormone serotonin-releasing peptide (SNP).These genes are known as “target genes.”Each one has a different genetic code and a unique DNA […]

Narcissism genetic theory: Genetic variation found in narcissistic traits explains why we get more narcissistic

The genetic underpinnings of narcissistic traits are a new area of research, but it has a very long history.According to a 2007 article in the journal Nature, “a recent analysis of samples from 2,500 individuals in the United States and Great Britain showed that the frequency of narcissistic personality traits was higher in those with […]
