People who look alike but are not related share similar DNA, a new study reports. The findings also suggest the shared genetic variations not only relate to similar physical appearance but also common habits and behaviors.
Blood tests revealed specific epigenetic biomarkers for schizophrenia. Researchers applied machine learning to analyze the CoRSIVs region of the human genome to identify the schizophrenia biomarkers. Testing the model with an independent data set revealed the AI technology can detect schizophrenia with 80% accuracy.
Researchers have uncovered the molecular structure of three major complexes of glutamate receptors in the hippocampus. The findings shed new light on the mechanisms behind memory and learning in the brain.
The cerebellum underwent evolutionary changes that may have contributed to the development of language, culture, and tool use in humans, a new study reveals.
Researchers have identified regions within the DNA of neurons that accumulate single-strand breaks (SSBs). The SSB accumulation appears to be unique to neurons. The findings challenge previous thoughts on the cause of DNA damage and how it could impact neurodegenerative disorders.
Researchers reveal the role hundreds of miRNAs appear to play in modulating circadian rhythm.
Researchers uncover an intimate connection between methylation and the body's circadian rhythms.
A new genetics test for COVID-19 has been developed by an international team of researchers. The full genome sequencing test can not only provide accurate results in less than two minutes, but it can also extract intricate and highly complex genetic data about the strain of the coronavirus infection.
