   Study elucidates genetic causes of severe cardiomyopathies in childrenStudy elucidates genetic causes of severe cardiomyopathies in children
 
Cardiac muscle degeneration (cardiomyopathy) is the most common cause of severe cardiac dysfunction and life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias in children. These severe disorders often lead to consideration of heart transplant. However, their actual cause - the genetic basis - has been poorly characterized.
 
 ChromDesign project trains budding scientists in 3D architecture of genome
 
ChromDesign project trains budding scientists in 3D architecture of genomeHow does the three-dimensional architecture of our genes affect the differentiation of cells and development of diseases? This is the question behind the European Innovation Training Network "ChromDesign- Chromatin and Design".
 
 
 UTSA research could help address genetically based challenges with male fertility
 
UTSA research could help address genetically based challenges with male fertilityMillions of couples who have trouble conceiving may get relief from new research led by scientists at The University of Texas at San Antonio. The researchers have developed a high-resolution genetic map showing how men produce sperm cells. Their effort could help address genetically based challenges with male fertility, a major cause of conception problems.
 
 
 Salk researchers solve genetic 'whodunnit' for cancer gene
 
Salk researchers solve genetic 'whodunnit' for cancer geneLong thought to suppress cancer by slowing cellular metabolism, the protein complex AMPK also seemed to help some tumors grow, confounding researchers. Now, Salk Institute researchers have solved the long-standing mystery around why AMPK can both hinder and help cancer.

Biologists uncover novel genetic control of lipid maintenance and its potential connection to lifespanTiny microscopic worms, invisible to the naked eye, are helping scientists to better understand an extraordinarily complex biological pathway that connects fat to overall health and aging in humans.
 
 
 People with rare cancers can benefit from genomic profiling, shows research
 
People with rare cancers can benefit from genomic profiling, shows researchNew research has shown that many Australians with rare cancers can benefit from genomic profiling. The findings of the patient-driven trial are being presented today at the Clinical Oncology Society of Australia Annual Scientific Meeting and could result in dramatic changes to the way those with rare cancers are diagnosed and treated.
