Researchers have greatly boosted the amount of information that can be obtained using Seq-Well, a technique for rapidly sequencing RNA from single cells. This advance should enable scientists to ...

New Insight on Mole Growth Could Aid Development of Skin Cancer Treatments

Moles stop growing when they reach a certain size due to normal interactions between cells, despite having cancer-associated gene mutations, says a new ...

Statins May Reduce Cancer Risk Through Mechanisms Separate to Cholesterol

Cholesterol-lowering drugs called statins may reduce cancer risk in humans through a pathway unrelated to cholesterol, says a new ...

Mechanism That Restores Cell Function After Genome Damage

Researchers have found out how cells can recover their development and longevity after damage by UV. The discovery may enable new therapies against premature ...

Computer Model Uses Virus 'Appearance' to Better Predict Winter Flu Strains

Combining genetic and experimental data into models about the influenza virus can help predict more accurately which strains will be most common during the next winter, says a study published ...

New 3-D Model of a DNA-Regulating Complex in Human Cells Provides Cancer Clues

Scientists have created an unprecedented 3-dimensional structural model of a key molecular 'machine' known as the BAF complex, which modifies DNA architecture and is frequently mutated in ...

Stopping Lethal Lung Damage from the Flu With a Natural Human Protein

The raging lung inflammation that can contribute to death from the flu can be stopped in its tracks by a drug derived from a naturally occurring human protein, a new animal study ...

As Genome-Editing Trials Become More Common, Informed Consent Is Changing

As public interest and expanded research in human genome editing grows, many questions remain about ethical, legal and social implications of the technology. People who are seriously ill may ...

Skeletal Muscle Development and Regeneration Mechanisms Vary by Gender

Researchers have generated mice lacking the estrogen receptor beta gene, both fiber-specific and muscle stem cell-specific, which resulted in abnormalities in the growth and regeneration of skeletal ...

Identification of a Viral Factor That Impairs Immune Responses in COVID-19 Patients

Researchers aimed to characterize the viral factor(s) determining immune activation upon SARS-CoV-2 infection and found that ORF3b, a gene encoded by SARS-CoV-2, is a potent IFN ...

Quality Control Mechanism Closes the Protein Production 'on-Ramps'

Recent work revealed a newfound quality control system in the protein production assembly line with possible implications for understanding neurogenerative ...

There's a Gene for Detecting That Fishy Smell, Olfactory GWAS Shows

Some people carry a mutation in a particular gene that makes the smell of fish less intense. The study, which is the largest genome-wide association study (GWAS) of olfactory genes in humans ...

HIV Up Close: Unprecedented View of Virus Reveals Essential Steps for Causing AIDS

Accomplishing a feat that had been a pipe dream for decades, scientists have recreated in a test tube the first steps of infection by HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), the virus that causes AIDS ...
