RNA Sequencing provides new insights into infertility-causing sex chromosome disorders
Research carried out by Francis Crick Institute scientists provides new insights into sex chromosome disorders which typically cause infertility, such as Turner syndrome and Klinefelter syndrome. Through their research, the scientists have discovered an exception to a ‘rule’ or ‘principle’ of chromosome biology first hypothesised in 1967. Our sex – male or female – is ...
