When pathogens infect the cells of the body, the infection sets off a chain reaction involving the immune system that changes the expression of hundreds of genes. Gene expression is … Continue Reading Multiple signatures left on the immune system by viral infections identified for the first time.
Scientists have prior evidence that the hormone estrogen is a major driver in the growth of cervical cancer, however, a new study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison examining genetic profiles of … Continue Reading New study rewrites the role of estrogen in cervical cancer.
Another step forward has just been taken in the area of synthetic biology. Research teams from Inserm, CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), Montpellier Regional University Hospital and Stanford … Continue Reading Intelligent bacteria, bactodetectors, have been programmed to successfully detect disease.
Researchers at the University of Luxembourg have successfully measured metabolic profiles, or the metabolomes, of different brain regions in mice. The metabolome represents all or at least a large part … Continue Reading Researchers have mapped the mouse brain metabolome.
Investigators at the Stanford University have identified a pattern of gene activity that could help scientists create a blood test for quickly and accurately detecting whether patients are experiencing a … Continue Reading Researchers identify the genetic signature for early, accurate sepsis diagnosis.
