Yale researchers identify molecule for detecting parasitic infection in humans

...the recognition of this parasite is crucial for an appropriate immune response. However, it was unclear which of the 13 different TLRs present in mammals was responsible and which molecule of T. gondii was being recognized by the TLRs. "In this study we found that the recognition of T. gondii by the innate immu...

Institute for Systems Biology Symposium Addresses Need for Better Computational Tools

Cerebral navigation: How do nerve fibers know what direction to grow in?

...ent requires billions of neurons to migrate to the appropriate locations in the brain and grow nerve fibers (axons) that connect to other nerve cells in an intricate network. Growth cones, structures in the tips of growing axons, are responsible for steering axons in the right direction, guided by a complex set ...
