Scientists may have found the genes linked to a long life and aging. The researchers have discovered 238 genes that, when removed, increase the replicative lifespan of S. cerevisiae yeast cells.
Scientists have created some new images of the three-dimensional structure of supercoiled DNA.
Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder?
Snakes may not have arms or legs, but they do have the blueprints for them in their genome.
Scientists have found the genetic underpinnings of achromatopsia in dogs, which is a rare, inherited vision disorder that affects the eye's cone cells, which could help humans in the future.
A person's ancestral background could be determined by their fingerprints. Scientists have found that the characteristics of people's fingerprints may tell them a bit more about a person's biological history.
Scientists are taking a closer look at Przewalski's horses to better understand their history.
Imagine regrowing lost limbs. That's exactly what a certain flatworm can do with its regenerative powers. Now, scientists are aiming to learn a bit more about this regenerative ability after sequencing its genome.
A group of scientists have discovered that a mysterious "living fossil" may not have changed much on the outside, but it's definitely evolved genetically.
Previous studies have linked various genetic and potential environmental factors to Alzheimer's disease. Yet did you know that stress could be essentially contribute to the overall health issue?
Researchers have taken a closer look at evolution and have found how these structural differences could arise in two species with nearly identical genetic backgrounds.
