St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

...r hair cells makes mammalian hearing more than 100 times better than it would be if the cells were absent. As sound waves race into the inner ear at hundreds of miles per hour, their energy—although dissipated by the cochlear fluid—generates waves in the fluid, somewhat like the tiny waves made by a pebbl...

Mutating the entire genome

...in one of every 100 cells. So it is 10,000-100,000 times better. That is important, because multiple molecular steps are needed for a mouse to develop a human cancer – and such mice are used to learn how to treat or prevent cancers, says Capecchi. In many cancers, translocation of two chromosomes is th...
