Eliminating the protein Tudor-SN from cancer cells slowed down their growth and division.
A team led by researchers from Temple University's Lewis Katz School of Medicine (LKSOM) and the University of Pittsburg has successfully eliminated HIV infection in animal models using a gene editing technique known as CRISPR.
There's no permanent cure for HIV just yet, but scientists are getting closer. A recent experiment managed to contain HIV infection in living animals.
Meet the wasp of your nightmares.
The discovery means humanity is close to creating custom genomes from yeast and is just a few years away from making the first artificial organisms.
BabySeq is a newborn-screening study that is taking place in Brigham and Women's Hospital and Boston Childrne's Hospital, which is one of the four study sites of the NIH.
Is it about time we genetically engineer dogs? This is what David Ishee thinks as he started to make his way towards gene editing for stronger, healthier dogs. However, with regulations blocking his way, it will not be an easy quest.
Scientists around the world are hanging on the edge of their seats after a new report concludes that researchers should be allowed to "edit" embryos for implantation to eliminate genetic diseases. Are superbabies possible in the near future?
A panel of scientists, ethicists and academics have thrown in their support in human gene editing.
Scientists who have been researching gene-editing may be disappointed in the eve of the new administration. A last-minute proposal will be addressing CRISPR and other cutting-edge technologies in the field of medicine.
A Swedish scientist by the name Fredrik Lanner is waltzing through the ethical line of science as he attempts to edit the genes of a healthy human embryo.
A team of researchers from A*STAR's Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) and Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) has successfully developed a new CRISPR- associated protein that can alter the DNA of living cells with more precision compared to other existing methods.
Even in the scientific community, things aren’t so cut and dried. Debates over the ethics of changing the natural world have been getting louder due to the increasingly advanced techniques involved in gene drives. Gene drives are a type of study that ensures a certain trait is passed from parent to offspring.
Chinese researchers to perform first ever human trial of the CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technique to fight non-small lung cancer.
Researchers from the Penn State University has devised a new and effective way to genetically edit foods, but the new tool seem to gather different responses due to the loose regulatory system of the U.S. Department of Agriculture defining genetically modified organisms or GMO.
