CRISPR Study Reveals Errors in Earlier Cancer Research

The growth of human colon cancer cells (raised in culture) is unaffected by presence or absence of MELK. Top row: untreated cells; bottom row: cells treated with a MELK inhibitor. Left two columns, control cells; right two columns, cells in which MELK gene has been knocked out. CSHL researchers conclude that MELK is not involved in cancer proliferation. Credit: CSHL
