A team of MIT researchers has successfully cured a rare genetic liver disease in mice by "editing" the DNA to correct the mutated gene.
Scientists at Georgia Tech say a new technique for tagging the genome and studying the RNA of a virus could help them discover better antiviral drugs and perhaps even more effective vaccines.
A novel device out of Brown University could lead to the widespread, real-time tracking of influenza.
Researchers have been able to view a strand of DNA through an electron microscope by stringing it between microscopic silicon pillars.
British X-ray crystallographer made great strides in our understanding of the molecular makeup of DNA and RNA but missed out on Nobel Prize.
NASA has turned to crowdsourcing for help in its search for embryonic planetary systems that the Hubble can study.
For the first time, researchers create a new organism based on E. coli that passes along artificially engineered DNA.
Researchers say a next-gen sequencing approach allows them to subtract the entire human genetic sequence from the genetic material of a blood sample and identify viruses based on what remains.
Penn researchers are the first to directly convert a non-heart cell type into a heart cell via RNA transfer, managing to change both a brain cell and a skin cell into a heart cell.
