E. coli bacteria are the frequent culprits behind outbreaks of food-borne illnesses. But not all strains are harmful; some are even helpful.
The gene atlas enables a new functional view on how we study the human genome, and provides a tool that will change how we study and treat cancer and genetic disorders.
Forget about the double helix – now, researchers have identified the existence of a new DNA structure that could play a crucial role in how DNA is expressed.
A new study documents, for the first time, how the ability of bacteria to swap genetic material with each other can directly affect the emergence and spread of globally important infectious diseases.
Researchers have uncovered a new protein shield that aids in repairing damaged DNA in cells and affects resistance to drugs doctors use to treat breast cancer.
Every time a scandal breaks in one of the thousands of places where research is conducted across the world, we see headlines to the effect that “science is broken”. But if it’s “broken” today, then when do we suggest it was better?
Researchers have determined how satellite DNA, considered to be “junk DNA”, plays a crucial role in holding the genome together.
Hidden layers of regulation that control the activity of genes can produce drug-resistant, surviving cells. New research helps explain how therapy-resistant cancers arise — findings with important implications for the future of cancer therapy.
