chemical modifications that either allow, or prevent, the expression of the DNA wrapped around them. Every time a cell divides into new cells, its double-stranded DNA splits into two single strands, which then each produce a new double-strand. Nu...
Newly identified mechanism for silencing genes points to possible anti-cancer strategies

parameters of infection, such as immune system CD4 cell count, amount of virus in the bloodstream and immune system antibody response. They found that those animals that were given the test vaccine could control the infection. The control animals wit...
Scientists identify molecular cause for one form of deafness
