Scientists get first glimpse at how plants, most animals repair UV-damaged DNA

...ort time, there's a danger of the donated electron jumping back to the photolyase enzyme before the repair is done. Zhong's work has revealed how the water in the pocket performs a critical function at this point. When the photolyase enzyme becomes excited, it jostles the water molecules, and that motion w...

European Commission funds EBI to do new research on synergies between bioinformatics and medical informatics
