Gene Expression Rhythms Are Disrupted In Schizophrenia-Affected Brains

Rhythms in gene expression in the brain are highly disrupted in people with schizophrenia, according to a new University of Pittsburgh-led study. The findings also suggest that researchers studying schizophrenia-linked genes in the brain could have missed important clues that would help understand the disease. “Our study shows for the first time that there are […]

Genomic Mechanism Regulates Smell Receptor Selection

A genomic mechanism by which a finite number of genes can ultimately help distinguish a seemingly near-infinite number of scents has been identified by researchers from Columbia University. The human nose can distinguish one trillion different scents – an extraordinary feat that requires 10 million specialized nerve cells, or neurons, in the nose, and a […]

CRISPR Helps Unravel Genetic Network Linked To Autism

A genetic network linked to autism has been uncovered by researchers at the University of Toronto, The findings will facilitate developing new therapies for this common neurological disorder. As part of a collaborative research program focusing on autism led by Benjamin Blencowe, a professor in the University of Toronto’s Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular […]
