'Listening' to single cells may uncover cancer origins

Listening to a single voice in a crowd can be difficult. In a similar way, determining gene expression in single cells has posed quite a challenge.   518 more words



Sleep is the most obvious case where the state of our consciousness is altered, yet it remains very poorly understood. In the first place, nobody is really sure why we need it? 823 more words

Defense responses to short-term hypoxia and seawater acidification in the thick shell mussel Mytilus coruscus

The rising anthropogenic atmospheric CO2 results in the reduction of seawater pH, namely ocean acidification (OA). In East China Sea, the largest coastal hypoxic zone was observed in the world. 228 more words

The Physics of Epigenetics

Epigenetic regulation of gene expression involves silencing, i.e. a permanent and heritable inhibition of gene transcription (transciptional gene silencing) or translation (post-transcriptional gene silencing). The current paradigm is that gene silencing is achieved through chromatin condensation, in a so-called heterochromatinization process. 98 more words
