Stanford geneticists discuss the future of genomics, including the importance of studying diverse populations for medical research.
Stanford scientists and collaborators have harnessed CRISPR to replace the mutated gene underpinning the devastating immune disease, SCID-X1.
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.
With a DNA test, Dani Shapiro discovered that the man she had thought was her father was not. She discussed the finding, and her writing, on campus.
