Washington (ANI): In a new Ohio University study, researchers found that male mice who were fed a high-fat diet and became obese were more likely to father offspring who also had higher levels of body fat.
The effect was
Washington (ANI): Researchers have identified two gene variants that may predict which women are likely to benefit from a long-term drug treatment that can cut the risk of developing the disease in half.
The work represents a
London, June 8 (ANI): Genes play a small role in determining a child’s reading ability, a new study has found. Researchers looked at the relationship between children’s reading scores and their social background using data
Anuj is a typical 10 year old boy, he loves to play cricket and is a pretty good batsman. His friends are amazed at how well he plays and he is all set to become the captain of the junior team at his school. But Anuj’s parents
Five-year-old Ajay isn't allowed to play outside with his friends because his parents are scared if he'd hurt himself making them run to the hospital. Thirty two year old Seema is the perfect wife and daughter-in-law. However,
Genes may be responsible for laziness, says an American study. New research from the University of Missouri suggests certain genetic traits may predispose people to being more or less motivated to exercise and remain active.
Scientists have shown in new research that dietary changes are linked to alterations in gene expressions that could affect overall health and physiology. Even the most health-conscious eaters find themselves indulging in junk
Scientists have developed a new technology that improves understanding of genetic basis of behaviours in mosquitoes and could lead to effective methods to control diseases spread by the insect, says a new study. Virginia Tech
Are your kids super-picky about what they want to eat? It’s all your fault – or at least your gene’s! A new study shows that kids don’t want to try out new food because of their genetic makeup. The work, led by Myles
According to a new study, a common genetic abnormality predisposes one to Alzheimer's. Scientists at the University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) have discovered a new genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease by screening
An American study that sheds light on how effectively bacteria creates blockage in medical devices could eventually provide a solution to the problem. The new study has examined how bacteria clog medical devices, and the result
Researchers have successfully identified genes that are linked to heart disease, which could improve its prediction and diagnosis, says a study. Studies screening the genome of hundreds of thousands of individuals (known as
Geneticists have figured out how parents transmit their experiences, both good and bad, to the genes of their offspring. Epigenetics probes how environmental factors play an active role in activating or deactivating genes by
Are you a leader? Thank your genes. A new research says that like many other inherited traits, leadership can also be passed on through your genes. The study, from the University College London, has for the first time identified
