DNA copying machine a master of resource recycling

Researchers at the University of Wollongong's (UOW) Molecular Horizons initiative have shed new light on how an important but not well understood protein goes about its vital role of reducing errors and mutations in DNA replication.

The regeneration of a cell depends on where it is positioned

A simple tissue sample from a plant, like a branch or leaf, can grow into a whole new plant. This ability could have applications in the production of food, biomass and medicine, and the genes responsible for regeneration ...

A fail-safe mechanism for DNA repair

Single-molecule fluorescent measurements provide fresh insights into a process for keeping errors out of our genomes.

What makes Helicobacter so adaptable?

The bacterial pathogen Helicobacter pylori owes its worldwide distribution to its genetic adaptability. LMU microbiologists have identified an enzyme that plays a vital role in the flexible control of global gene expression ...

Protein production efficiency can be predicted by gene sequence

Today, thousands of databases with biological data are publicly available. They include data on gene and protein sequences and detailed measurements of different cellular parameters, such as the exact quantities of all proteins ...
