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.
NASA has turned to crowdsourcing for help in its search for embryonic planetary systems that the Hubble can study.
British X-ray crystallographer made great strides in our understanding of the molecular makeup of DNA and RNA but missed out on Nobel Prize.
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.
Roughly 17,000 registered players of the DNA sequencing game Phylo have helped solve more than 350,000 problems since November 2010.
People at risk for suicide don't always show signs of their vulnerability. But a test that can scan biomarkers to predict actual suicidal impulses? While promising, it may go only so far.
