A review of medical literature appears to confirm an association between genetic obesity susceptibility and postnatal gains in infant weight and length, as well as showing associations with both... (Medical News Today)

Gene duplications associated with autism evolved recently in human history
Human geneticists have discovered that a region of the genome associated with autism contains genetic variation that evolved in the last 250,000 years, after the divergence of humans from ancient... (Medical News Today)

Noise-induced hearing loss restored in mice
By increasing production of a protein called NT3 - found to be crucial for communication between the ears and brain - researchers restored noise-induced hearing loss in mice. (Medical News Today)

Transition from moderate to problem drinking hinges on genetic material
Researchers from UCSF have found that microRNA levels in the brain are important in development of alcohol addiction, findings that could help with the development of medications. (Medical News Today)

NUS-led research team develops novel solutions to fight the obesity gene
Individuals who are genetically predisposed to obesity may soon have a therapeutic solution to combat their condition. (Medical News Today)

Study examines type of exome sequencing and molecular diagnostic yield
In a sample of patients with undiagnosed, suspected genetic conditions, a certain type of exome sequencing method was associated with a higher molecular diagnostic yield than traditional molecular... (Medical News Today)

Whole-exome sequencing shows potential as diagnostic tool
Among a group of 2,000 patients referred for evaluation of suspected genetic conditions, whole-exome sequencing provided a potential molecular diagnosis for 25 percent, including detection of a... (Medical News Today)

Whole exome sequencing closer to becoming 'new family history'
Approximately one-fourth of the 3,386 patients whose DNA was submitted for clinical whole exome testing received a diagnosis related to a known genetic disease, often ending a long search for... (Medical News Today)

New test scans all genes to ID single mutation causing rare disorders
