Researchers Map Path into Cell’s Nucleus

Researchers have delineated the architecture of the nuclear pore complex in yeast cells. The biological blueprint they uncovered shares principles sometimes seen on a much larger scale in concrete, steel, and wire.

Fixing the Code

The Code, Part 2: Does the ability to more easily change the blueprint of life mean we’re on the path to repairing the broken bits in our genetic inheritance? Or have we tried this before and failed? 

Finding The Code

The Code, Part 1: The race to sequence the human genome was also billed as a race to end disease. So what happened?

Genomic Data 101: 2018 Edition

Free download: This guide gives you a broader and deeper understanding than the previous edition, to help you understand what considerations you need to make when designing a computational genomics workflow or platform.

Some DNA-Binding Enzymes Prefer Fake DNA

Not only can synthetic molecules mimic the structures of their biological models, they can also take on their functions and may even successfully compete with them, as an artificial DNA sequence now shows.

Gut Cells Turn Up in Lung Tumours

Tumours are notoriously mixed up; cells from one part often express different genes and adopt different sizes and shapes than cells from another part of that same tumour. This discovery was still a surprise, however.
