Breast cancer replicates brain development process

Posted on Thursday 24 April 2014

New research led by a scientist at the University of York reveals that a process that forms a key element in the development of the nervous system may also play a pivotal role in the spread of breast cancer.

Ash research reveals first genetic clues to fight dieback

Posted on Tuesday 18 March 2014

Scientists collaborating on ash dieback research can reveal the first genetic clues that could help them identify and breed trees tolerant to the disease.


Harbour seals
Species conservation poised to benefit from DNA advances

Posted on Tuesday 25 February 2014

A biologist at the University of York is part of an international team which has shown that advanced DNA sequencing technologies can be used to accurately measure the levels of inbreeding in wild animal populations.


Beaver
Researchers shed new light on the genetic history of the European beaver

Posted on Tuesday 18 February 2014

An international team of scientists has used detailed analysis of ancient and modern DNA to show that the distribution and lack of genetic diversity among modern European beavers is due largely to human hunting.


Prostate gland
Prostate development discovery could lead to new treatments

Posted on Tuesday 11 February 2014

Scientists at the University of York have discovered how the prostate gland develops for the first time, according to research published in Cell Press.


Hemp oil
Oil composition boost makes hemp a cooking contender

Posted on Monday 10 February 2014

Scientists at the University of York report the development of hemp plants with a dramatically increased content of oleic acid. The new oil profile results in an attractive cooking oil that is similar to olive oil in terms of fatty acid content having a much longer shelf life as well as greater heat tolerance and potentially more industrial applications.
