Washington [US], August 6 (ANI): New research using genome editing technology has allowed scientists to create a model and assess a gene mutation associated with neuropsychiatric disorders in humans. The study has revealed how the mutation functions in the brain and affects anxiety and socia
San Diego (California) [US] August 2 (ANI): The body absorbs too much iron due to a condition known as hereditary hemochromatosis, which is brought on by a gene mutation. This causes tissue damage and diseases like liver disease, heart disease, and diabetes. However, scant and conflicting re
