The Spice of Life Scientists discover important genetic source of human diversity.Cytoskeleton Crew Findings confirm sugar's role in helping cancers survive by changing cellular architecture.Removing Race from Human Genetic Research A group of scientists are urging their colleagues to take a step forward and stop using racial categories when researching and studying human genetics. Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University. Light Signals from Living Cells Fluorescent protein markers delivered under high pressure.Genomic Signature Shared by Five Types of Cancer National Institutes of Health researchers have identified a striking signature in tumor DNA that occurs in five different types of cancer. Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives. Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
Genetic Mechanism Behind Cancer-Causing Mutations Researchers at Indiana University has identified a genetic mechanism that is likely to drive mutations that can lead to cancer.How to Unlock Inaccessible Genes An international team of biologists has discovered how specialized enzymes remodel the extremely condensed genetic material in the nucleus of cells in order to control which genes can be used.
