  • CRISPR-edited C. elegans identifies vulnerabilities in cancer

    At first glance, a one-millimeter worm that needs to be observed with a magnifying glass does not resemble a human being at all. However, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, an animal model widely used in biomedical research by hundreds of laboratories around the world, has approximately the same n more

  • New discoveries map out CRISPR-Cas defence systems in bacteria

    With the aid of highly advanced microscopes and synchrotron sources, researchers from the University of Copenhagen have gained seminal insight into how bacteria function as defence mechanisms against attacks from other bacteria and viruses. The study, which has just been published in the journal, Na more
