Tumor immune evasion arises through loss of TNF sensitivity - Science

Given the success of T cell–centric cancer immunotherapies, there is considerable interest in understanding exactly how tumors evade this form of therapy. Kearney et al. carried out a series of genome-wide CRISPR screens to identify mechanisms of tumor ...

Study brings fresh insights into biology of malaria parasite -
"Our results provide insights into the connection between genome organization, epigenetic features, and stage-specific gene expression in the malaria parasite," said Karine Le Roch, a professor of molecular, cell, and systems biology, who led the ...

This Week in Genome Biology - GenomeWeb

A Peking University-led team shares details on its antibody-independent chromatin interaction mapping method, known as open chromatin enrichment and network Hi-C (OCEAN-C). The approach combines in situ Hi-C assay and FAIRE-seq methods, the ...

    Home (Furies In The Genome)
    The struggle for existence causes genetic variation and natural selection. This idea is the basis for unifying molecular biology and Freudian psychology (mutations and psychosis) under the heading of generational relations. It is also the basis for unifying religion and the theory of evolution, because prophets, saints, and heroes, are evolutionary variants.
