Protein Packages Found To Activate Genes; May Be What Regulates Development And Disease

...iseases such as cancer. "Each type of cell in our bodies contains the same genes. What makes them do different things involves which genes are turned on," notes Bradley Bernstein, a pathologist at Harvard Medical School. He is also a research associate at the Broad Institute of Harvard and M.I.T., where a ...

Falling ants glide back to trunk to avoid dangers of forest floor

As a result, replaceable and nonreplaceable neurons could easily be distinguished under the microscope. Then, looking at very thin slices of brain tissue, the researchers used a technique called laser capture m...
