Combined analysis makes risk prediction for colorectal cancer more preciseIf first-degree relatives are affected by colorectal cancer, this indicates a person's own elevated risk of developing bowel cancer. The same holds true for people who have large numbers of genetic risk markers in their genome.

Researchers describe important step toward gene therapy for patients with Sandhoff diseaseBabies with the rare, deadly genetic disorder Sandhoff disease begin to miss developmental milestones just months after birth. Lacking muscle tone, they never learn to sit up, develop heads too large to lift and eventually suffer uncontrollable seizures. There is no cure.
 
 
 New computational method helps narrow down genetic targets for autism diagnosis
 
New computational method helps narrow down genetic targets for autism diagnosisAutism is a spectrum of closely related symptoms involving behavioral, social and cognitive deficits. Early detection of autism in children is key to producing the best outcomes; however, searching for the genetic causes of autism is complicated by various symptoms found within the spectrum.
 
 
 Researchers target abnormal epigenetic mechanisms involved in childhood cancers
 
Researchers target abnormal epigenetic mechanisms involved in childhood cancersSeveral childhood cancer cell types show features of immature neural cells, and there is evidence suggesting that these tumors may arise from neural crest stem cells that underwent abnormal changes during embryonic development.
