Scientists create stable, self-renewing neural stem cells

In a paper published in the April 25 early online edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, the Gladstone Institutes in San ...

Researchers modify CRISPR to reorganize genome

Researchers at Stanford University have reworked CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing technology to manipulate the genome in three-dimensional space, allowing them to ferry genetic snippets to different locations in a cell's nucleus.

Looking at cancer progression as evolutionary process

Two University of Oregon biologists have launched an ambitious, highly focused effort to identify genetic changes that occur from the formation of a single mutation to full-fledged cancer.

The proteins ensuring genome protection

Researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, have discovered the crucial role of two proteins in developing a cell 'anti-enzyme shield'. This protection system, which operates at the level of molecular ...

Researchers develop safer way to make induced pluripotent stem cells

Researchers at Johns Hopkins have found a better way to create induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells -- adult cells reprogrammed with the properties of embryonic stem cells -- from a small blood sample. This new method, described ...
