Uppsala [Sweden], February 6 (ANI): CRISPR-Cas9 is the "genetic scissors," that creates new potential for curing diseases. But the treatments must be reliable. In a new study, researchers have discovered that the method can give rise to unforeseen changes in DNA that can be inherited by the
Busan [South Korea], February 2 (ANI): The COVID-19 pandemic, which began in 2019, continues to mutate as it spreads further and infects more people. Vaccination, earlier looked upon with scepticism, has now become the only saviour from the never-ending cycle of the COVID-19 virus. A recent
Augusta (Georgia) [US], January 31 (ANI): A recent study has identified a handful of rare structural gene variants, involved in body processes of some of the sickest patients, like inflammation, which the COVID-19 virus needed, to be successful.
