US National Institutes of Health has issued a new draft data-sharing policy, ScienceInsider reports.

The system uses chemical epigenetic modifiers to activate the expression of target genes by recruiting an endogenous chromatin-activating machinery.

The researchers suggested that the system's combination of speed and high coverage could enable new applications within the imaging mass spec space.

The New York Times reports there are nearly 200 investigations into potential theft of intellectual property at biomedical research institutions.

Among the study's goals is to identify molecular signatures that can distinguish idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis from interstitial lung disease.

The scientists aim to use single-cell analysis to investigate the role of variation in a gene called ID3 in vascular smooth muscle cells.
