Progress Made Towards a Simple, Low-cost CRISPR-based SARS-CoV-2 DiagnosticNews
Researchers at the University of Connecticut have been working to develop a new, low-cost, CRISPR-based diagnostic platform to detect infectious diseases, including the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).
Jumping Genes Help Make Neurons in a Lab DishNews
The process of making functional brain cells in a lab dish requires the precise activation of selfish genetic elements known as LINE-1 (L1) retrotransposons. The finding, from researchers at KAUST, could lead to safer and more effective regenerative therapies for Parkinson's disease and other brain conditions.Read more
Study Provides Insights Into the Diagnosis and Treatment of Pediatric Brain CancerNews
In a recent study published in Autophagy, researchers at Kanazawa University show how abnormalities in a gene called TPR can lead to pediatric brain cancer.Read more
Cell Signaling Insights Leveraged for Glaucoma and Cancer Therapy DevelopmentArticle
In this article, we delve into some of the cell signaling pathways involved in glaucoma and cancer and how they represent promising new approaches to treatment.Read more
The Future of Pharma Beyond BlockbustersArticle
Each individual’s genetic makeup is slightly different from everyone else’s, so why are we all receiving the same medicine? To put it simply – the lucrative blockbuster business model, which has previously been the key to pharma success, is no longer viable. In a global and fast-moving world, in order to evolve, it’s time to examine new alternatives to the classic structure.Read more
ADME Advances: Personalized and Computational ApproachesArticle
ADME profoundly affects a drug’s properties and has long been a cornerstone of pharmacology and drug discovery. Recent years, however, have seen an evolution in ADME concepts. Here, we take a closer look at the impact personalized and computational approaches are having on a drug's pharmacology.Read more
Gene vs Allele: Definition, Difference and ComparisonArticle
Genes and alleles are essential to basic genetics, but what are the differences between them? In this guide, we compare genes and alleles and provide simple definitions and examples for both.
