No Country for Old Genes

News

Our modern world is radically different from the one we evolved in, and that creates a mismatch between the environment our genes were evolved to face, and the world those genes now encounter. A new review looks at how certain genes that benefited humans in our genetic past now predispose us to disease in old age.

CRISPR Editing Stops HIV Virus in Infected Cells

News

Human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) infection is a chronic disease affecting more than 35 million people worldwide. The infection can be controlled by antiretroviral therapy (ART), but there is still no complete cure. Now, a new study targeting the regulatory genes of the virus using CRISPR/Cas9 has helped block the production of the virus by infected cells.
