Researchers have sequenced their first two genomes of COVID-19 from samples of patients in the UK. The genomes have been published on an international viral sequence database. The sequences will provide critical information to track the spread and evolution of the virus in the UK and worldwide.
A new study identifies 956 genetic variants that contribute to an increased risk of insomnia. Researchers also identified the brain areas, biological processes and cell types that mediate the genetic risk of insomnia.
Researchers report stress during fetal development and early childhood can have lasting implications for brain development, leading to increased risks of brain disorders later in life.
A new study reports researchers have discovered evidence of interbreeding between Neanderthals and modern humans around 100,000 years ago, tens of thousands of years earlier than previously thought.
Researchers have created a math model to estimate the rates of mutation in the human genome.
A new study reports individual neurons may harbor up to 1000 genetic mutations which arise while genes are in active use and after brain development is complete.
Researchers have successfully mapped the epigenome for more than 100 different tissue and cell types.
