Link between gene variant and aggression in children
Findings help to substantiate 'differential susceptibility,' where some individuals are more susceptible to environmental conditions partly due to genotypeSome children react more strongly to... (Medical News Today)

CanDL database shines light on clinically important cancer gene mutations
Many clinical trials use genome sequencing to learn which gene mutations are present in a patient's tumor cells. (Medical News Today)

New 'mutation-tracking' blood test could predict breast cancer relapse months in advance
Scientists have developed a blood test for breast cancer able to identify which patients will suffer a relapse after treatment, months before tumours are visible on hospital scans. (Medical News Today)

Genetic mutations identified during remission may help predict risk of relapse, survival for leukemia patients
In preliminary research, the detection of persistent leukemia-associated genetic mutations in at least 5 percent of bone marrow cells in day 30 remission samples among adult patients with acute... (Medical News Today)

Study suggests variations in opioid receptor genes are associated with severity of neonatal abstinence syndrome
A new study led by researchers at Boston Medical Center (BMC) indicates that variations in opioid receptor genes are associated with more severe neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) in newborn babies. (Medical News Today)

Relapse in leukemia tied to mutations that persist through treatment
Focusing on mutations that linger through chemotherapy instead of those present at time of diagnosis may be a better way to predict relapse and survival in acute myeloid leukemia. (Medical News Today)

Batting practice in the genome
In the biochemical game of genetics, it was thought that the proteins controlling gene regulation in animals were either spectators or players. (Medical News Today)

Developing a new tool to detect a frequently missed sex chromosome disorder in boys
