Genetics apparently, can influence what people eat. Some genes are linked with fat and salt intake, and some explain why there's little or not preference for vegetables and fiber.
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.
Previously, only 20-30 genetic conditions that can cause obesity have been thought to exist.
People residing in a place with warm and humid conditions commonly have wider noses, while those that live in cold and dry locations have narrower nose.
You're more of a Neanderthal than you think.
The potential of stem cells have been brought to life when they started to try the cells create tissues and organs, but this is the first time an attempt is made at creating bones from stem cells.
A child born and raised by obese parent is more likely to grow up as obese compared to those who were raised by thin parents.
A panel of scientists, ethicists and academics have thrown in their support in human gene editing.
Two children with leukemia are slowly starting to recover after what appears to be a surprisingly new and unique treatment method. The plan was to kill their cancers using a special gene-editing method, and it worked.
Improved technique can get them to pick up sounds as quiet as a whisper.
Scientists, for the first time, have successfully grown human cells inside early-stage pig embryos in laboratories. This means that we have created the first pig-human hybrids or interspecies chimeras.
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.
Scientists may have heralded the rise of a totally new life form. A team has engineered the first ever "semi-synthetic" organism, courtesy of breeding E. coli bacteria with an expanded six-letter genetic code.
