Novel screening method identifies new drug targets that could potentially enhance the effectiveness of PD-1 checkpoint inhibitors, a promising new class of cancer immunotherapy.READ MORE
NIAAA-supported researchers have discovered that extracellular vesicles released by liver cells in a mouse model of alcoholic steatohepatitis contain a miRNA signature detectable in the blood.READ MORE
For the first time, scientists from University College London have used the UK's synchrotron facility to document the evolution of seed coat thinning from archaeological remains.READ MORE
An evolutionary biologist at the University of Houston has published new calculations that indicate no more than 25 percent of the human genome is functional.READ MORE
BWH researchers examined a specific microRNA, miR-128, to help identify glioblastoma subtypes and to determine if altering the microRNA's presence in glioblastoma cells could change the tumor's subtype.READ MORE
A research group at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel has developed a new method to measure the half-life of RNA molecules.READ MORE
A research team has developed a computational method to systematically probe massive amounts of open-access data to discover new ways to use drugs, including some that have already been approved for other uses.
Genome engineering technology transforms living cells into archival data storage devices that capture, store, and propagate information over time.READ MORE
Research now shows that the countermeasure viruses came up with — inhibitory proteins referred to as anti-CRISPRs — can be used to improve CRISPR-Cas9 as a gene-therapy tool, decreasing off-target gene editing that could cause unwanted side effects.
