Rice lab captures unseen details of replication, clues to how mutations can happen
Scientists examine the impact of a very specific defect in DNA replication, one that has important implications for cancer treatment
A study in the Journal of the American Chemical Society reports that these novel components can damage cells when they are exposed to light
Errors in the human genetic code that arise from mismatched nucleotide base pairs in the DNA double helix can lead to cancer and other disorders. In microbes, such errors provide the basis for adaption to environmental stress.
