Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a great new RNA annotation tool.
Researchers have uncovered a number of proteins that could play a critical role propagating signals within cells that can lead to uncontrolled cell growth—one of the hallmarks of cancer.
Schizophrenia is considered a disorder of the mind, influencing the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. But new research shows that organs, other than the brain, also change at the onset of the disease.
The Allen Institute for Cell Science has launched the first predictive and comprehensive, 3D model of a live human cell.
For the first time, scientists have revealed the essential genes for the most deadly human malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. They have created new genomic techniques to analyse every gene in the parasite and determine which ones are indispensable.
Scientists have shown that boosting cells’ ability to process misfolded proteins could keep them from aggregating inside the cell, significantly delaying the onset of blindness in mice.
Researchers have created tools that would enable real-time activation of target genes in specific locations in the genome.
The link between cancer mutations and DNA repair mechanisms has been well established. However, the specific origins of the mutation in these essential pathways have remained enigmatic. Now, researchers have used human and worm data to explore the mutational causes of cancer.
At a discussion of epidemics, Bill Gates revealed that he believes the next deadly disease that will cause a global pandemic is coming, and we should prepare for it like war.
