In this article, Ramya Sriram describes how data science is driving innovations in medical biotechnology and genomics.
UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock has said there is a mutated form of SARS-CoV-2 that may be causing a rise in infections in South East England.
Researchers have shown how increased YTHDF3 expression correlates with brain cancer metastases, making it a target for the condition.
Researchers have been tracking SARS-CoV-2 by sequencing the genomes of virus samples collected from diagnostic testing. They hope that using next generation sequencing (NGS) on SARS-CoV-2 will help to accurately diagnose the novel coronavirus, identify mutations and track its history. This article explores the findings of their latest study and…
The use of genetic testing has had a positive impact on patient care, bringing abundant opportunities for diagnosis or predictions of future diagnoses. Pushpanathan Muthuirulan explains how the application of genetic screening can help to customise healthcare for individuals based on their unique genetic makeup.
Recent reports suggest that both clinical and genetic risk factors may contribute to COVID-19 susceptibility and severity. Catherine Ball, Chief Scientific Officer of Ancestry®, discusses results of the company’s COVID-19 Research Study, designed to explore non-genetic and genetic associations with disease outcomes.
Professor Laurence D Hurst explains why understanding the nucleotide mutations in viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, can have significant implications for vaccine design.
Having analysed the SARS-CoV-2 genomes from over 46,723 patients, researchers have found no mutations that increase transmissibility.
Researchers reveal how two genetic variations may contribute to COVID-19 disease severity and suggest the product of one, the CD209 antigen, may be a potential drug target.
The first comprehensive survey of genomics, transcriptomics, global proteomics and phosphoproteomics has revealed insights into paediatric brain tumours.
Researchers have analysed 750 samples from patients with SARS-CoV-2 to discover details about its transmission and mutational properties.
The SARS-CoV-2 RNA genome structure has been studied by researchers who identified several potential drug targets.
The role that retrons in bacteria has been discovered by researchers, who found they protect colonies when infected by viruses.
