In a colon cancer model, researchers saw transcriptional changes and population expansions in some checkpoint receptor-negative tumor-infiltrating T cells.

This Week in Nature

In Nature this week: extension to uncultivated virus genome reporting standards, multiplex orthogonal CRISPR-based genome editing approach, and more.

The Wall Street Journal reports there is uncertainty surrounding whether He Jiankui's embryo editing did what he said it did.

As they dig into the data on He Jiankui's genome editing experiment, CRISPR researchers say the work he did raises many scientific questions.

Genome-wide association and meta-analyses have uncovered a dozen ADHD-related loci, providing insights into its biology and overlap with other conditions.

This Week in PNAS

In PNAS this week: artemisinin resistance mutations in malaria parasites, ant-plant interactions over time, and more.

The investigators showed that template-free Cas9 editing is capable of repair to a predicted genotype, allowing for correction of disease-associated mutations.

DefiniGen said it plans to use ERS Genomics' technology to create disease models to support drug discovery for type 2 diabetes and other conditions.

Using a mouse model of immunotherapy resistant disease, the researchers found that this program could be targeted by an inhibitor to improve response.

DefiniGen said it plans to use the Broad's technology to create disease models to support the development of therapeutics for metabolic diseases.
