No bioinformatics experience required to use new CRISPR data analytical tool
A new computational tool has been designed to make the life of bench scientists easier when it comes to identifying genes that are involved in particular diseases, an arduous and time consuming process.
How to ‘jumpstart’ rhythmic breathing at birth
In her laboratory at Baylor College of Medicine, Dr. Huda Zoghbi and her colleagues have found two neuronal lineages in the hindbrain that act as ‘conductors’ of an exquisite biological symphony.
