Genetics uses information from one or two genes to explain a disease or condition, whereas genomics examines all of the genetic information to determine biological markers predisposing an individual to disease. This category includes news on DNA, genes, microRNAs, chromosomes, inheritance and evolution.

For the first time, scientists use gene therapy to successfully reverse obesity and insulin resistance in an animal model of type 2 diabetes.
In a first-of-its kind study, genome editing is proven to reduce 'bad' cholesterol in large animals. The findings pave the way for human clinical trials.
A new study suggests that the ketogenic diet, which is very low in carbohydrates but high in fats, may give cancer therapy a much-needed boost.
Cystic hygromas are fluid-filled sacs that occur most commonly on the head or neck of a baby. They occur due to blockages in the lymphatic system. In this article, we look at the causes of cystic hygromas, including environmental and genetic factors, as well as how doctors remove or shrink the growths.
Rats that persistently choose alcohol despite negative consequences have the same altered signaling mechanism in the brain as human addicts, a study shows.
Scientists may have found a new treatment for a genetic form of autism; experiments in mice successfully reverse the condition using cancer trial drugs.
Researchers show how a synthetic gene circuit activated by doses of caffeine as found in coffee can regulate blood sugar levels in diabetic mice.
