The system uses the Cas13 nuclease to identify target sites in various RNA viruses and then destroy them.

The companies are collaborating to return actionable genetic information to all participants of the Project Baseline Health Study.

Researchers analyzed data from 23andMe and the UK Biobank to find that errors of recombination, like uniparental disomy, can be present among healthy individuals.

Using ancient DNA profiling, isotope analyses, and archeological clues, investigators saw high-status, male-centered families, along with more modest graves for unrelated individuals.

The company aims to repurpose drugs by translating the mechanisms that allow hibernating animals to withstand the stresses of extended sleep.

Fluorescent proteins or self-labeling tags are invaluable tools for studying protein dynamics in living cells using fluorescence microscopy. However, quantitative imaging requires physiological levels of expression of the target protein of interest (POI), especially when stoichiometric interactions of the POI need to be investigated.
