One species, many genomes

... Weigel. Detailed analyses showed that genes for basic cellular functions such as protein production or gene regulation rarely suffer knockout hits. Genes that are important for the interaction with other organisms, on the other hand, such as those responsible for defense against pathogens or infections,...

Research identifies protein that signals flowering in squash plants

Adult stem cells from human cord umbilical cord blood successfully engineered to make insulin

...Stressing that the reported discovery is extremely basic research, Urban cautioned: "It doesn’t prove that we’re going to be able to do this in people — it’s just the first step up the rung of the ladder." The lead author of the paper, UTMB professor of internal medicine/endocrinology Larry Denner, said...
