Cancer scientists create 'human' leukemia process to map how disease begins, progresses

...in the context of human cells. "So what we are building is a new approach and way of studying how leukemia arises in the first place. We found that with the leukemia gene we were using, the disease only arose from immature stem and progenitor cells. The leukemic stem cells that were created seemed to chan...

Macaque genome analysis will help find human disease genes

... often without changing the amino acids -- protein building blocks -- for which the genes encode. Siepel's group used these changes as an indicator of how much random change should be expected over 25 million years. Then they looked at changes that would code for a different amino acid, which might cause a ch...
