Newly described stretches of super-silenced DNA reveal a fresh approach to reprogram cell identity to use in regenerative medicine studies and one day in the clinic.
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.
Targeted RNA sequencing is being hailed as a major growth area up to 2024. It is hotly expected that new RNAseq applications will be developed by the growing next-generation sequencing users community.
Biotech, Moderna Therapeutics has experienced scrutiny this year, but they are ready to prove why their drugs are safe for long term use.
Scientists have developed the first bacterium to use extra letters, or unnatural bases, to build proteins.
Scientists have succeeded in developing a method to target a cell’s DNA or RNA, to shut down the production of a protein.
Researchers has found that levels of certain RNA molecules increased when stem cells were isolated, whereas the levels of many other RNA molecules decreased.
Molecules called endosiRNAs help us avoid genetic chaos, according to a new study from a team at the Babraham Institute.
The science of ageing has made a lot of progress recently. Here are three examples of discoveries that might benefit people who are alive right now.
Two new papers have proposed a new theory that proteins were involved in the origin of life on Earth, alongside RNA, challenging the current hypothesis.
