UCSF scientists have zeroed in on a possible genetic mechanism for the reason behind women outliving men phenomenon.
A multi-institute research team discovered tens of thousands of rare mutations in noncoding DNA sequences and assessed if these contribute to autism spectrum disorder.
A weighty new study shows that CRISPR therapies can cut fat without cutting DNA.
UCSF experts in gene editing and bioethics weigh in on the news of Chinese researcher He Jiankui’s announcement of the birth of the first babies who had their DNA edited as embryos.

Genetics may predispose some people to both Alzheimer’s disease and high levels of blood lipids such as cholesterol, a common feature of cardiovascular disease.
To develop novel therapies to treat specific subtypes of COPD, and potentially even to reverse some of the symptoms, scientists at UCSF are taking a precision medicine approach to the disease.
UCSF demonstrates that cancer is a clever engineer, capable of constructing entirely new disease-promoting networks out of raw materials readily available in the cell.
