      CRISPR Tagging Improves Accuracy of Model Cells Grown from Stem Cells

      CRISPR tags are being used to identify all of the transcription factors necessary to turn a pluripotent stem cell into a suitable adult cell for research, and possible future cell therapies. An ...

      Study Revealing the Secret Behind a Key Cellular Process Refutes Biology Textbooks

      New research has identified and described a cellular process that, despite what textbooks say, has remained elusive to scientists until now -- precisely how the copying of genetic material that, once ...

      Scientists Develop New Gene Therapy for Eye Disease

      Scientists have developed a new gene therapy approach that offers promise for one day treating an eye disease that leads to a progressive loss of vision and affects thousands of people across the ...

      Quantum Nanodiamonds May Help Detect Disease Earlier

      The quantum sensing abilities of nanodiamonds can be used to improve the sensitivity of paper-based diagnostic tests, potentially allowing for earlier detection of diseases such as HIV, according to ...

      Researchers Uncover the Unique Way Stem Cells Protect Their Chromosome Ends

      Telomeres are specialized structures at the end of chromosomes which protect our DNA and ensure healthy division of cells. According to a new study, the mechanisms of telomere protection are ...

      New Insights on Health Effects of Long-Duration Space Flight

      Among the new findings, the research team found that chronic oxidative stress during spaceflight contributed to the telomere elongation they observed. They also found that astronauts had shorter ...

      Genetic Study Shows That the Risk of Pre-Eclampsia Is Related to Blood Pressure and BMI

      Gut Hormones' Regulation of Fat Production Abnormal in Obesity, Fatty Liver Disease

      Gut hormones play an important role in regulating fat production in the body. One key hormone, released a few hours after eating, turns off fat production by regulating gene expression in the liver, ...

      CRISPRi Screens Reveal Sources of Metabolic Robustness in E. Coli

      Metabolic robustness, the ability of a metabolic system to buffer changes in its environment, is not always a welcome feature for microbiologists: it interferes with metabolic engineering or prevents ...

      Potential Treatment Against Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Causing Gonorrhea and Meningitis

      A team has demonstrated the effectiveness of an inexpensive molecule to fight antibiotic-resistant strains of the bacteria responsible for gonorrhea and meningococcal meningitis. These two infections ...
