Ancient epigenetic changes silence cancer-linked genes

An epigenetic change, a form of DNA control, that deactivates some genes linked to cancer late in human development has been conserved for more than 400 million years, new research led by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research ...

Machine learning identifies common DNA structures

Researchers from HSE University have used machine learning to discover that the two most widespread DNA structures—stem loops and quadruplexes—cause genome mutations that lead to cancer. The results of the study were ...
