The scientists used a multi-omics approach to determine that organs don't age in the same ways or at the same pace.

Salk Institute researchers have constructed a human methylome map to uncover tissue-specific variations as well as non-canonical methylation.

The unique characteristics of mitochondrial genomes and diseases add a twist to the current discussions about heritable edits to the genome.

A new study is highlighting transcriptional differences between mouse and human tissues.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Salk Institute for Biological Studies has received a $25 million donation from Conrad Prebys that it plans to add to its ongoing Campaign for Salk fundraising effort.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The Salk Institute has received a $3 million donation from the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research to fund its Glenn Center for Aging Research, which engages scientists from 11 of Salk's labs in studies of aging-related diseases and the normal processes of aging.

A joint effort by The Scripps Research Institute and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies has provided the broadest look yet in vivo of a class of proteins that linger in the body for months or even years, rather then being replaced or refreshed after days or hours

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – An effort to characterize epigenetic patterns and their interactions with underlying genetic profiles in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana highlights the epigenetic variation present in plant populations.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The Salk Institute for Biological Studies said today that it plans to use a $42 million donation to create a new center that will focus on genome-based research into a range of human diseases.
