Scientists have reconstructed ancient DNA from soil for the first time, in an advance that will significantly enhance the study of animal, plant and microorganism evolution.
The Centre, at the University’s Anne McLaren Building on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, has reached a new milestone following a unique collaboration
Artificial intelligence could be used to triage patients suspected at risk of early stage oesophageal cancer15 April 2021
Artificial intelligence ‘deep learning’ techniques can be used to triage suspected cases of Barrett oesophagus, a precursor to oesophageal cancer, potentially leading to faster and earlier diagnoses, say researchers at the University of Cambridge.
Moving endangered species to new locations is often used as part of species conservation strategies, and can help to restore degraded ecosystems. But scientists say there is a high risk that these relocations are accidentally spreading diseases and parasites.
CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing can lead to unintended mutations at the targeted section of DNA in early human embryos, researchers have revealed. This highlights the need for further research into the effects of CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing, especially when used to edit human DNA in laboratory research.
A unique residential study has concluded that, contrary to perceived wisdom, people with eating disorders do not lose self-control – leading to binge-eating – in response to stress. The findings of the Cambridge-led research are published today in the Journal of Neuroscience.
Researchers have used a technique similar to MRI to follow the movement of individual atoms in real time as they cluster together to form two-dimensional materials, which are a single atomic layer thick.
A study by Cambridge political scientists, including a former Permanent Secretary, charts two decades of central government’s inability to get to grips with devolution, and the role this has played in the current parlous state of the Union.
