First-Ever Study of Triple Gene Combinations Could Help Predict Risk of Disease

University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering

In the largest study of its kind, researchers at the University of Minnesota and University of Toronto have revealed a complex network of genes that work together. Understanding those genetic connections can help develop new life-saving treatments to combat diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Researchers Build DNA Replication in a Model Synthetic Cell

Delft University of Technology

Researchers at Delft University of Technology, in collaboration with colleagues at the Autonomous University of Madrid, have created an artificial DNA blueprint for the replication of DNA in a cell-like structure. Creating such a complex biological module is an important step towards an even more ambitious goal: building a complete and functioning synthetic cell from the bottom up.

This Remote-Control Shoots Laser at Gold to Switch on Cancer-Killing Immune Cells

Georgia Institute of Technology

Cancer immune cell therapy has made headlines with astounding successes like saving former U.S. President Jimmy Carter from brain cancer. But immunotherapy has also had many tragic flops. Georgia Tech researchers working to optimize the innovative treatment have implanted a genetic switch that activates T-cells when they are inside of tumors. Remote-control light waves resembling those used in a TV remote combine with gold nanorods to flip the switch.

Putting Proteins in Their Proper Place

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

A host of nuclear RNA-binding proteins, when misplaced outside the nucleus, form the harmful clumps seen in several brain disorders, including FTD and ALS. Clumps that form from these disease proteins are composed of sticky fibrils that damage nerve cells.

BIDMC-Lead Team Develops New Approach to Study Non-Coding RNAs

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

In a groundbreaking paper published today in the journal Cell, investigators at the Cancer Research Institute Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) have found dozens of important new genes, both coding and non-coding that impact sensitivity to chemotherapy. In doing so, the scientists developed a novel technique that marries CRISPR technology with big data mining to identify and assign function to non-coding RNAs
