Researches have identified molecular features of testicular germ cell cancers that could inform future efforts to improve treatment decisions and help monitor patients to see if their cancer has come back.
A new technique, dubbed intron seqFISH enables scientists to image 10,421 genes at once within individual cells.
Using genome-wide genetic approaches, researchers systematically screened for the loss of an additional gene that could rescue a genetic disease, and found it.
The deal gives Editas Medicine an exclusive ‘first’ to negotiate for licenses to genome-editing inventions that rise from the sponsored research.
Figuring out what causes diseases like autism, schizophrenia and depression is tricky. Now Stanford University researchers are turning blood into brain cells to study these diseases in a dish.
Wrinkles aren’t just a sign of ageing on our appearance, but also occurs deep inside on a cellular level. These wrinkles appear to prevent our genes from functioning properly, researchers have found.
Scientists have made the first direct observation of a key step in the process that bacteria use to rapidly evolve new traits, including antibiotic resistance.
Dying cells generally have two options: go quietly, or go out with a bang. The latter, while more conspicuous, is also mechanistically more mysterious. Now, scientists have pinpointed what they believe is the molecular “code” that unleashes this more violent variety of cell death.
A new method can examine protein assembly in real time, in living cells, to find problems in the process and diagnose the resulting diseases, according to new research.
