Language skills are essential to a child’s ability to communicate and develop. These skills enable children to engage with other people and learn from their surroundings and in the classroom.
Scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Institut Pasteur in France have developed a technique for reconstructing whole genomes, including the human genome, on a personal computer.
Scientists went through the records of more than 8,000 schizophrenia patients and identified a tool used for assessing an individual’s genetic risk for a disease.
Researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz have developed a method to engineer new functionalities into cells. The results were published today in the journal Cell in the article "Dual film-like organelles enable spatial separation of orthogonal eukaryotic translation".
Humans adapt through culture and language by transferring knowledge from one generation to the other.
Genetic variations of a neuro-associated gene termed SPTBN1 have been revealed to cause a neurodevelopmental disorder, according to researchers.
A McGill-led study has shown that the size of the Maya population in the lowland city of Itzan (in present-day Guatemala) varied over time in response to climate change. The findings, published recently in Quaternary Science Reviews, show that both droughts and very wet periods led to important population declines.
UCLA life scientists have identified six "words" that specific immune cells use to call up immune defense genes -- an important step toward understanding the language the body uses to marshal responses to threats.
Using a widely known field of mathematics designed mainly to study how digital and other forms of information are measured, stored and shared, scientists at Johns Hopkins Medicine and Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center say they have uncovered a likely key genetic culprit in the development of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
In researching the causes and potential treatments for degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease, neuroscientists frequently struggle to accurately identify cells needed to understand brain activity that gives rise to behavior changes such as declining memory or impaired balance and tremors.
The world’s first systematic study has explained how SARS-CoV-2 and other human viruses are more adapted to infect specific types of tissues..
Many species might be left vulnerable in the face of climate change, unable to adapt their physiologies to respond to rapid global warming. According to a team of international researchers, species evolve heat tolerance more slowly than cold tolerance, and the level of heat they can adapt to has limits.
A new software tool allows researchers to quickly query datasets generated from single-cell sequencing. Users can identify which cell types any combination of genes are active in.
In the process of developing language, the melody patterns that emerge in infants' vocalisations are a very important first step.
A new tool developed by an multidisciplinary team of mathematicians and biologists from the University of California, Irvine could help decode the language used by cells to interact with each other.
In cells, numerous important biochemical functions take place within spherical chambers made from proteins and RNA.
Coral reefs are beautiful and diverse ecosystems that power the economies of many coastal communities. They're also facing threats that are driving their decline, including the planet's warming waters.
The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics has brought together a group of experts to address the state of knowledge on fermented foods.
Might a new technological development of researchers from Tel Aviv University soon revolutionize the dairy products we consume?
On a late summer day in 1953, a young man who would soon be known as patient H.M. underwent experimental surgery.
Scientists have recommended a coalition of experts to collectively work to offer the fundamental data about gene-edited crops.
