New research identifies how natural killer cells prepare the womb for pregnancy.
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.
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.
Researchers suggest a new place where phosphorus-based molecules could have formed, providing a potential answer to the building blocks of life.
Researchers hypothesize that the newly-discovered mutations help re-hydrate the airways, discouraging bacterial build-up in the lungs.
Oxford Nanopore’s Technologies’ long-read, real-time, portable MinION sequencer is now being used by researchers across China.
