Programming living cells
Finding has implications for other diseases involving multiple genes
Discovery helps explain which protein should be created to form a particular type of cell
A publication with 940 undergraduate authors demonstrates that research experiences can be offered to far more students than has traditionally been possible
The Mouse ENCODE (ENCyclopedia Of DNA Elements) project is building a comprehensive catalog of functional elements in the mouse genome, and is comparing them to those in the human genome.
A new technique allows researchers to activate proteins in the brain by shining an LED light on them.
Researchers have created a model that may explain the complexities of the origins of life. Their work, which appears in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, offers new insights into how RNA signaling likely developed into the modern “genetic code.”
