Genome editing reveals role of gene important for human embryo development
Huge genetic diversity among Papuan New Guinean peoples revealed
The first large-scale genetic study of people in Papua New Guinea has shown that different groups within the country are genetically highly different from each other. Scientists at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and their colleagues reveal that the people there have remained genetically independent from Europe and Asia for most of the last 50,000 years, and that people from the country’s isolated highlands region have been completely independent even until the present day.
Immunotherapy treatment option for selected breast cancer patients, genetic study suggests
Immunotherapy drugs could help some breast cancer patients based on the genetic changes in their tumours, researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and their collaborators find. Published today (13 September 2017) in Cancer Research, scientists identify particular genetic changes in a DNA repair mechanism in breast cancer.
