  • Using electrical stimulus to regulate genes May 28, 2020
    A team of researchers has succeeded in using an electric current to directly control gene expression for the first time. Their work provides the basis for medical implants that can be switched on and off using electronic devices outside the body.
  • Heart surgery stalled as COVID-19 spread May 28, 2020
    Two recent journal articles explore how hospitals worldwide scaled back on heart surgeries as the pandemic hit, and how they can resume those operations in a world still plagued by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
  • gnomAD Consortium releases its first major studies of human genetic variation May 28, 2020
    For the last eight years, the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD) Consortium (and its predecessor, the Exome Aggregation Consortium, or ExAC), has been working with geneticists around the world to compile and study more than 125,000 exomes and 15,000 whole genomes from populations around the world. Now, in seven articles, gnomAD Consortium scientists describe their first […]
  • Autism severity can change substantially during early childhood May 28, 2020
    A new study found that around 30 percent of young children with autism have less severe autism symptoms at age 6 than they did at age 3, with some children losing their autism diagnoses entirely. It also found that girls tend to show greater reduction and less rise in their autism symptom severity than boys […]
  • Key components of proteins are twisted to boost reactions useful to medicine May 28, 2020
    In proteins, amino acids are held together by amide bonds. These bonds are long-lived and are robust against changes in temperature, acidity or alkalinity. Certain medicines make use of reactions involving amide bonds, but the bonds are so strong they actually slow down reactions, impeding the effectiveness of the medicines. Researchers devised a way to […]
  • Impact of major life events on wellbeing May 28, 2020
    Researchers examined the effect of 18 major life events on wellbeing.
  • Exploiting viruses to attack cancer cells May 28, 2020
    Scientists have made an adenovirus that specifically replicates inside and kills cancer cells by employing special RNA-stabilizing elements.
  • Previously claimed memory boosting font 'Sans Forgetica' does not actually boost memory May 28, 2020
    It was previously claimed that the font Sans Forgetica could enhance people's memory for information, however researchers have found after carrying out numerous experiments that the font does not enhance memory.
  • Tackling airborne transmission of COVID-19 indoors May 28, 2020
    Preventing airborne transmission of Covid-19 should be the next front of the battle against the virus, argue experts in a new article.
