Genetic discovery may pave the way to new diagnostic approaches, treatments for motor neurone diseases

A new genetic discovery adds weight to a theory that motor neurone degenerative diseases are caused by abnormal lipid (fat) processing pathways inside brain cells. This theory will help pave the way to new diagnostic approaches and treatments for this group of conditions. The discovery will provide answers for certain families who have previously had … Read more

le genétique fait ses premiers pas en en France

Près d’un an après l’adoption of the reéforme lois de bioéthique, unevelle mesure est sur le point de se concretiser. It is automated, the first study of neonatal genetic detection is carried out in Hexagone, for detectors of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. This maladie neuromusculaire de l’enfant est l’une des plus fréquentes (une centaine de cas … Read more

Researchers uncover how dopamine in the cerebellum modulates social behaviors

The cerebellum is essential for sensorimotor control but also contributes to higher cognitive functions including social behaviors. In a recent study, an international research consortium including scientists from Inserm – University of Montpellier (France), the Institut de Neurociències Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (INc-UAB) (Spain), and the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) uncovered how dopamine in the … Read more

Breeding 2,000 Generations of Bacteria May Have Solved This Major Debate in Biology

Since the dawn of genetics in the early 20th century, biologists have debated whether evolution is driven more by chance mutations or by the original diversity in the gene pool. Having a lot of genetic options to choose from might make natural selection move a lot faster at the start, but do the genetic mutations … Read more

Chromosome organization affects the evolution of DNA in archaea

The structure of how DNA is stored in archaea makes a significant difference to how quickly it evolves, according to a new study by Indiana University researchers. The study, led by molecular biologist Stephen Bell, Distinguished Professor and chair of the College of Arts and Sciences’ Department of Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at IU Bloomington, … Read more

Accurate detection of specific genomic disorders made possible by nanopore sequencing

Using nanopore sequencing, a rapid third-generation cytogenetic analysis tool, investigators are now able to accurately detect specific genomic disorders in a fraction of the time it takes to conduct traditional and molecular cytogenetic testing. This facilitates earlier diagnosis of genetic disorders and accelerates appropriate clinical management for patients and their families. Their work appears in … Read more

Detailed genetic roadmap of glaucoma will help develop new drugs to combat the disease

A new, detailed genetic roadmap of glaucoma – the world’s leading cause of irreversible blindness – will help researchers develop new drugs to combat the disease, by identifying potential target areas to stall or reverse vision loss. The research, one of the largest and most detailed stem cell modeling studies reported for any disease, is … Read more
