International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium
Video

The fight against cancer is going global. The National Cancer Institute’s International Cancer Proteogenome Consortium brings together researchers from around the world to conduct proteogenomics research and develop a comprehensive international proteogenomic atlas that would represent the diversity of people and commonly diagnosed cancers in their unique populations. To break down silos, data produced by ICPC institutions is made available to the public.

Laws of Genetics
Video

The study of Genetics is incomplete without studying the Laws put forth by Mendel. The Three Laws of Genetics give us an idea of the types of genes, how exactly the genes separate from each other and even tell us how they assort irrespective of each other during gamete formation. Watch this video to get introduced and understand the Three Laws of Genetics in detail.

RNA No Longer Lost in Translation
Video

"Stress granules" belong in the cellular toolbox of survival strategies. Proteins and RNA huddle together into membrane-less blobs when the cell is threatened, a mechanism which is also critical for proper maternal mRNA storage, synaptic plasticity, tumor progression and neurodegeneration. These previously invisible basic genetic processes have been captured for the first time, using fluorescence microscopy.
