Cohesin - a molecular motor that folds our genome

IMP - Research Institute of Molecular Pathology

New insights into the process of DNA-looping change our view of how the genome is organised within cells. The discoveries by IMP-researchers elucidate a fundamental mechanism of life and settle a decade long scientific dispute.

Non-Coding DNA Located Outside Chromosomes May Help Drive Glioblastoma

University of California San Diego Health

According to a new Cell study, extra DNA scooped up and copied alongside cancer-causing genes helps keep tumors going — elements that could represent new drug targets for brain tumors and other cancers notoriously difficult to treat.

Newswise: Contest showcases winning green fluorescent protein images, videos

Contest showcases winning green fluorescent protein images, videos

American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB)

Earlier this year, the call went out to the worldwide scientific community to submit their most beautiful and intriguing images and videos created using green fluorescent protein (GFP), the glowing molecule that revolutionized cell imaging 25 years ago. Now the votes are in, and the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), its Public Information Committee, and the public have determined the winners in each category.

Newswise: Probing the role of an inflammation resolution sensor in obesity and heart failure

Probing the role of an inflammation resolution sensor in obesity and heart failure

University of Alabama at Birmingham

After heart attack, ALX/FPR2 is activated by resolvin D1 in immune cells in the spleen and at the heart attack site. This speeds resolution of the heart injury. Research with mice that completely lack ALX/FPR2 reveals more about the pathways this resolution sensor uses to target inflammation.

Newswise: High school students’ data science contributions boost biomineralization research

High school students’ data science contributions boost biomineralization research

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Two high school students developed software to analyze images of diatoms—algae that produce silicon for constructing cell walls—to determine the differences between wild and genetically modified strains of these organisms. This work was instrumental to a research team interested in optimizing diatoms for biomineralization, the process of making materials from biological systems.

How plants handle stress

University of Göttingen

Plants get stressed too. Environmental factors such as drought or a high concentration of salt in the soil disrupt their physiology.

Tiny Filters Help Detect Cancerous Blood Cells

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Multiple myeloma is a type of blood cancer in which malignant plasma cells accumulate in the bone marrow, and recent studies have shown that some can leave the marrow and enter the blood stream. Until now, it has been difficult to detect these cells, known as clonal circulating plasma cells, in the blood.

Software competition advances understanding of genetic function

Iowa State University

Sequencing a genome doesn't necessarily reveal the functions of individual genes. An Iowa State University scientist helps to organize a competition to evaluate the accuracy of software programs that predict gene function. The recently published results of the latest competition included 144 entries from 68 teams.
