Genetics

Dr. Lonnie Johnson, an inventor who registered over 100 patents and developed a solid-state battery based on them, describes human evolution as an interactive process between biology and technology, in which each influences and is influenced by its own
The institute's scientists developed a method that allows real-time monitoring of the development of embryos at the beginning of their journey and applied it for the first time to rabbits. The comparison they made between embryonic development in rabbits and mice gave rise to answers to fascinating questions about the formation of humans
On the spectrum of disorders caused by a defect in one gene
Scientists have successfully sequenced the entire human Y chromosome, revealing critical genomic features. This groundbreaking research offers deep insights into human biology and potential medical advances. The new sequence reveals genomic factors in fertility, including sperm production.
This complex interaction of cultures between 5500 and 4500 BC in the Maghreb region led to exchanges of knowledge, cultural changes and mutual genetic influences
New discoveries about how the result of infection with a virus from the herpes family is determined and where dormant viruses may hide in the body
New research shines a positive light on biological stigma
According to the researchers, it is a hormone, a small signal molecule, which controls the growth of plants. The decoding may help a lot in expanding agricultural crops and dealing with the global food crisis
What makes foraminifera species sensitive to heat?
The research team hopes that the tools developed in this study will pave the way for the development of similar treatments for other rare diseases
Scientists have published draft results from a comprehensive research effort underway to capture all human genetic variation
The researchers behind the new study were able to create baby mice with genetic material from two males without any genetic changes. They achieved this by using stem cells to create primordial germ cells (PGCs), which differentiate into sperm and egg.
The human DNA molecule contains about three billion bases and replicates every day about two trillion times. For the cellular structure to be preserved, the replication process must be incredibly precise, but at the same time, the appearance of mutations shows that the process is not immune to errors. With the help of computer simulations, physicists and chemists from the University of Surrey In England they showed that errors in replication may occur due to quantum tunneling. 
The nanomedicine that attacks cancer twice: both improves the effectiveness of chemotherapy and strengthens the immune system
One of the genes, called ATOH1, was found for the first time in the world to be involved in deafness. Family members in Israel are the first people in the world to be found to have a mutation in this gene - which is responsible for hearing loss
