  • Virtual reality tool developed to untangle genes

    Researchers from Oxford have been using virtual reality software to compile genetic data to create models which explain how genes are controlled within their natural chromosomal environments. The team from the MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine (WIMM) have been working in collaboration w more

  • EMBO at Basel Life

    EMBO and Basel Life hosted EMBO at Basel Life conference. A committee of leading scientists had organized this international and broad-scope scientific conference on current and emerging life science research to be held as part of Basel Life. “Established and young researchers will present and discu more

  • New 3-D imaging reveals how human cell nucleus organizes DNA and chromatin of its genome

    Sixty-four years ago, James Watson and Francis Crick described the now-iconic double helix structure of DNA. A team of researchers at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies describe development and application of new electron microscop more

How to Clone a Mammoth: The Science of De-Extinction

Could we bring back mammoths? Should we bring back mammoths? Beth Shapiro explains the science of de-extinction and Jurassic Park, and asks if it’s a good idea at all.Could extinct species, like mammoths and passenger pigeons, be brought back to life? Beth Shapiro, evolutionary biologist and pio ... more

The Mobile Genome

Why attend? Transposons are abundant in most genomes and constitute about 50% of the human genome. They are usually considered genomic parasites, the mobilisation of which can cause harmful genetic mutations. Various mechanisms have evolved throughout the tree of life to defend genomes from the de

Cell Symposia CRISPR: From Biology to Technology

CRISPR systems can cleave and precisely incorporate DNA into defined locations in the genome. These elegant machineries evolved to protect microbes from phage invaders but have recently been repurposed by scientists as powerful tools for biological discovery and biotechnology. CRISPR-based platforms

  • Microbial Expansins

    Expansins are small proteins that loosen plant cell walls and cellulosic materials without lytic activity. First discovered in plants, expansin genes are found in the genomes of numerous bacteria and fungi that interact with plants in pathogenic and mutualistic patterns, as well as in microbes that more

  • Rewriting the Genetic Code

    The genetic code—the language used by cells to translate their genomes into proteins that perform many cellular functions—is highly conserved throughout natural life. Rewriting the genetic code could lead to new biological functions such as expanding protein chemistries with noncanonical amino acids more

  • Evolutionary Genomics of Defense Systems in Archaea and Bacteria*

    Evolution of bacteria and archaea involves an incessant arms race against an enormous diversity of genetic parasites. Accordingly, a substantial fraction of the genes in most bacteria and archaea are dedicated to antiparasite defense. The functions of these defense systems follow several distinct st more
