Loss of protective protein linked to age-related changes in the eye
A study in mice has shown that the loss of a protein that protects retinal support cells may drive aging-associated diseases of the retina such as macular degeneration. Read More
Study shows potential of CRISPR-Cas9 tools for synthetic gene control, cellular engineering
Rice University researchers were able to use deactivated Cas9 (dCas9) proteins to target key segments of the human genome to synthetically trigger the transcription of human genes. Using dCas9 proteins, researchers have revealed important details about human promoters and enhancers. Read More
Single-cell analyses shed light on drug resistance of melanoma brain metastases
Using single-cell genetic analyses of frozen brain samples, Columbia University researchers have uncovered evidence of how melanoma brain metastases evade current treatments. Read More
