Stanford geneticists discuss the future of genomics, including the importance of studying diverse populations for medical research.
Stanford researchers have created an algorithm to detect familial hypercholesterolemia, a hard-to-diagnose genetic disease.
Stanford scientists and collaborators have harnessed CRISPR to replace the mutated gene underpinning the devastating immune disease, SCID-X1.
The prevalence of genetic testing in the United States falls short of the recommended guidelines for women with ovarian cancer, new research indicates.
New research has found that many regions of Mexico lack genetic counselors; increased outreach and training could help, Stanford researcher suggests.
Molecular data identifies breast cancer subgroups likely to recur decades after successful treatment, predicts probable timing and location of metastases.
Scientists at Stanford have developed a tool that helps them track "off-target" gene edits that come as an accidental result of gene editing.

Researchers leverage studies in fruit flies to identify a potential treatment for people with neurodegenerative disorder called spinocerebellar ataxia.
Although sparked by trauma, PTSD has a genetic component as well, which can influence what therapy is most successful and provide other insights.
New Stanford research found that knowing your genetic make-up can affect how your body responds and potentially affect your risk for certain conditions.
