A new study shows that most early ovarian tumors exist for years at a size that is a thousand times smaller than existing tests can detect reliably.
Genetic analysis of a year's worth baby poop has given researchers a detailed picture of how bacteria come and go in the intestinal tract.
The activation of wound-healing genes may be a powerful predictor of breast cancer survival.
Gene expression profiling using DNA microarray technology shows that a type of lymphoma is actually two distinct diseases.
Genetic studies have uncovered a host of new genes involved in the formation of spores in yeast. The studies may illuminate germ cell production in vertebrates.
Genes and partial gene sequences are being found at a rate far faster than anyone can decipher their function. Two groups of Hughes researchers have been attacking that bottleneck with automated programs designed to shed light on the function of newly found genes and the expression patterns of known genes.
