Rearranging Chromosomes – Does It Affect Their Function?

News

Molecular biologists long thought that domains in the genome’s 3D organization control how genes are expressed. After studying highly rearranged chromosomes in fruit flies, researchers now reveal that while this is the case for some genes, their results challenge the generality of this for many others.

Gene Discovery Aids the Development of Plants to Fight Climate Change

News

Hidden underground networks of plant roots snake through the earth foraging for nutrients and water, similar to a worm searching for food. Yet, the genetic and molecular mechanisms that govern which parts of the soil roots explore remain largely unknown. Now, researchers have discovered a gene that determines whether roots grow deep or shallow in the soil.

RESCUE Fills a Critical Gap in the CRISPR Toolbox

News

Scientists have made use of a deactivated Cas13 to guide NA Editing for Specific C to U Exchange (RESCUE) to targeted cytosine bases on RNA transcripts, and used a novel, evolved, programmable enzyme to convert unwanted cytosine into uridine -- thereby directing a change in the RNA instructions.
