Sheffield scientists capture snapshots of enzymes trimming branched DNA after cell division Scientists have unlocked a crucial part of the mystery as to how our DNA can replicate and repair itself – something which is essen
DNA evidence from the ancient bones and teeth of people who lived in Europe near the end of the last Ice Age shows a major shift in the population around 14,500 years ago during a period of severe climatic instability.
Scientists have uncovered an unknown chapter of human history - a major population turnover in Europe at the end of the last Ice Age about 14,500 years ago, during a period of severe climatic instability.
A protein that usually fights viral infections may also cause cancer by taking advantage of a weakness in DNA replication process to induce mutations in our genome, a new study has found. Cancer is caused by the growth of an
Researchers have identified 238 genes linked to ageing and found that switching them off extends life in yeast cells, an advance that provides new genomic targets which could be used to boost human lifespan.
A team of researchers have created 'leukemia in a dish' to better study it. Mount Sinai scientists engineered stem cells to better understand the mechanisms behind a form of leukemia caused by changes in a key gene.
Claiming that genetic changes which happen after birth can determine whether a man is straight or gay, scientists have recently found out that homosexuality may be triggered by environmental factors during childhood.
Scientists say they have extracted ancient DNA from the skull of a man buried in the highlands of Ethiopia 4,500 years ago that supports the theory that Eurasian farmers migrated into Africa some 3,000 years ago.
