Tiny fish evolve rapidly and predictably by diving into a 'genetic toolbox' shared with other organisms including Darwin's finches.
Stanford Medicine researchers and others discovered 13 genetic signatures that are closely linked to an increased risk for severe COVID-19.
Abdominal adhesions frequently occur after abdominal surgery. Stanford researchers prevented their formation in mice by blocking a molecular pathway.
A Stanford-led study finds that remnants of an ancient viral infection may be the reason humans and other primates evolved to have larger hearts and bodies.
A team led by Howard Chang has contributed key technology to enable new experimental cancer therapy that uses CRISPR to edit immune cells.
Researchers zeroed in on the genes driving ground squirrel hibernation — and their insights could be helpful for understanding human health.
In his quest to cure his daughter’s ultra-rare disease, Matt Wilsey might also be changing the way drugs are made, Stanford Business magazine reports.
Scientists have used CRISPR-Cas9 screens to reveal more about how the bacteria behind Legionnaire's disease infects humans.
Mammalian cells use a label to distinguish self from non-self circular RNA molecules. Foreign molecules can trigger anti-cancer immune responses.
Scientists at Stanford use a gene therapy technique, called RNA silencing, to treat a heart condition called restrictive cardiomyopathy in mice.
A Stanford scientist and his son harness RNA sequencing to discover the genomic mutation behind the uncommon California poppy.
Stanford scientists have found 16 new genetic variants linked to a greater risk for autism, a finding that could help identify biomarkers for the disorder.
As a freshly minted undergraduate, Kristin Reese had a strange side hustle. With her trusty ice chest, Reese helped collect donor hearts for a research …
Through the Humanwide project, a patient's pharmacogenomic evaluation helped doctors prescribe a pain reliever that is effective for her individual biology.
A Stanford researcher explains that genome-wide association studies of psychiatric disorders are far more reliable than older, smaller genetic studies.
Stanford geneticists discuss the future of genomics, including the importance of studying diverse populations for medical research.
