A team of researchers have pin-pointed the gene which controls the production of tooth enamel in mice, called Ctip2.
Researchers have developed a new approach in the search for treatments for Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD).
Researchers studying a gene called DISC1, previously implicated in schizophrenia, have seen evidence that it is essential for normal brain development.
Scientists have identified a gene implicated in up to one fifth of breast cancers. The good news is that studies in mice seem to show a commonly-used blood pressure drug appears to reverse the effects of the gene.
Blocking the action of a gene called Sirtuin-1 reduced the symptoms of type 2 diabetes in rats, scientists have found.
Researchers have used mice to pinpoint what goes wrong in aneuploidy, which includes the most common genetic disorders involving chromosomes, usually an extra chromosome.
A team of scientists studying mice have found a target that could lead to an effective way to kill colon cancer cells.
How similar are we really to chimpanzees?
A new study identifies a stem cell that may cause some types of prostate cancer, at least in mice.
An extra copy of chromosome 21 may boost protection against cancer, research on mice suggests.
Rewriting the genetic code of the flu virus has helped to produce a stronger immune response, studies on mice have shown.
Type 1 diabetes has been treated in GM mice using antibodies.
Scientists have created a new method to temporarily turn off the function of genes in mice.
Scientists have identified a genetic change that makes lung tumours more likely to spread to other parts of the body.
Prostate tumours have been in reduced in mice using a medicine originally designed to treat obesity.
Modified stem cells have been used to treat Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) in mice by replacing the faulty gene that causes the disease with a normal version of the gene.
