microRNAs Regulate Neurotransmitter Switching and Confer Social Preference

A confocal image of a tadpole brain reveals dopaminergic (green) neurons, the type increased in typical kinship recognition, and GABAergic (red) neurons, those elevated in cases of expanded social kinship. Credit: Davide Dulcis, UC San Diego.

Casting a Neural Net over RNA-Seq Data

News

Computer scientists at Carnegie Mellon University say neural networks and supervised machine learning techniques can efficiently characterize cells that have been studied using single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq). This finding could help researchers identify new cell subtypes and differentiate between healthy and diseased cells.

Visualizing “Unfurling” Microtubule Growth

News

Microtubule fibers form a self-assembling scaffolding inside living cells that is absolutely essential for survival. New work from UC Davis shows how alpha- and beta- tubulin subunits are added to the growing ends of microtubules, unfurling like a sail.
