Computer program predicts functions of bacterial gene regulators

Scientists have developed a computer program to predict the functions of bacterial gene regulators. This online software which is called CopraRNA could save researchers a lot of wet lab work as it precisely predicts which bacterial genes are controlled… Continue reading

Life’s tiniest architects pinpointed: Molecular regulators of epigenetics

If a genome is the blueprint for life, then the chief architects are tiny slices of genetic material that orchestrate how we are assembled and function. The study pinpoints the molecular regulators of epigenetics — the process by which unchanging gene… Continue reading

Understanding ‘master regulator’ genes could lead to better cancer treatments

A pair of genes work together as “master regulators” in cell division to keep the correct number of chromosomes in each daughter cell. Ipl1 and Mps1 work to hook and unhook chromosomes for proper DNA separation. The discovery could lead to better anti-… Continue reading
