A novel technology for genome-editing a broad range of mutations in live organisms: Scientists develop a new gene-editing tool that could help treat many disorders caused by gene mutations

The ability to edit genes in living organisms offers the opportunity to treat a plethora of inherited diseases. However, many types of gene-editing tools are unable to target critical areas of DNA, and creating such

Applying the Goldilocks principle to DNA structure: Scientists consider the form that may be ‘just right’ for scripting gene expression

The Goldilocks of fairy-tale fame knew something about porridge. It needed to be just right — neither too hot nor too cold. Same with furniture — neither too hard nor too soft. In a different

Visualizing better cancer treatment: Researchers engineer a protein micelle that can be visualized by MRI as it delivers hemotherapeutics

A team of researchers from New York University has engineered nanoscale protein micelles capable of both delivering chemotherapeutic drugs and of being tracked by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The innovation falls into the category of
