Scientists from the University of Geneva have discovered that Swiss men have the worst quality sperm in Europe, with 17 percent of Swiss men being considered “sub-fertile” in accordance with guidelines from the World Health Organization (WHO).
Researchers have created fruit fly “avatars” that have helped to guide treatment for a man who had terminal colon cancer. The team genetically engineered flies that had the same mutations as the man’s tumor and then tested different drug combinations on the flies.
A study published this week has found that patients with bipolar disorder are seven times more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease. It is hoped that the finding may help researchers gain a better understanding of the underlying causes of the two conditions.
A trial conducted at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center suggests that people who follow a diet composed of ultra-processed foods consume more calories than those who eat unprocessed foods.
Two non-toxic molecules that could allow scientists to have better control over CRISPR gene editing have been identified. Researchers say that the molecules could halt the gene editing process within minutes, decreasing the risk of genetic mutations.
Researchers at Vanderbilt University have discovered an ancient species of budding yeasts that have lost dozens of genes that protect against DNA mutation, without having suffered any adverse effects.
