Manufacturing the core engine of cell division

It's a cellular process going on since one billion years, yet we are not able to replicate it, nor to fully understand it. Mitosis, the mechanism of cell division that is so important for life, involves more that 100 proteins ...

Unraveling a mystery of dinoflagellate genomic architecture

New work from a Stanford University-led team of researchers including Carnegie's Arthur Grossman and Tingting Xiang unravels a longstanding mystery about the relationship between form and function in the genetic material ...

Piecing together the LanCL puzzle

Researchers from the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology in collaboration with scientists at Oxford University have published a paper in Cell reporting the function of LanCL proteins. These proteins are found in eukaryotic ...

Expanding the phylogenetic diversity of Asgard archaea

A team of researchers affiliated with several institutions in China and one in the U.S. has found evidence of multiple novel Asgard MAGs that expands the phylogenetic diversity of Asgard. In their paper published in the journal ...
