Precise transcript targeting by CRISPR-Csm complexes

Mammalian cells are inherently complex due to subcellular compartments, thereby making the process of robust transcript targeting of nucleic acids somewhat challenging in the molecular biology lab. In a recent report now ...

Virus discovery offers clues about origins of complex life

The first discovery of viruses infecting a group of microbes that may include the ancestors of all complex life has been found, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin report in Nature Microbiology. The discovery ...

Cell death shines a light on the origins of complex life

Organelles continue to thrive after the cells within which they exist die, a team of University of Bristol scientists have found, overturning previous assumptions that organelles decay too quickly to be fossilized.
