Scientists are taking advantage of the “self-homing” abilities of cancer cells and are creating armies of cancer-killing cells using CRISPR gene-editing.
The transcriptome gives a fuller picture of how genes are expressed. RNA sequencing allows for more detailed information on cellular pathways and expression levels in cancer studies.
Researchers have for the first time used a gene editing technique to successfully cure a genetic condition in a mouse model.
CRISPR gene drives have been tested in laboratory mice for the first time, offering a way in which multiple genes in mice can be altered to model complex multigenic human diseases. Could this step eventually lead to the eradication of pest species or is the technology still too controversial?
Tiny snippets of genetic material called microRNA may offer a way to detect conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease earlier, according to a new study.
The structure of DNA is widely accepted to exist as a double helix, but different DNA structures also exist. New research points to a range of triggers that can manipulate its shape.
Researchers have discovered how unusually long strands of RNA help colon cancer cells to avoid death, allowing unregulated growth.
Researchers at Oregon State University have developed a great new RNA annotation tool.
