Gene regulation, not just genes, is what sets humans apart

...ivier Fedrigo had to adapt some of the statistical tools used for genome-wide analysis of coding regions. To be sure their results would be robust, they focused on just the most reliably accurate published DNA sequences in common between the three animals, discarding two-thirds of the genome to ensure accu...

How cells change the pace of their steps

...this key concept in biology, but also provides new tools that will allow us to make even more significant advances in the future. By using a model experimental cell such as Dictyostelium, we are able to design mutant strains that will permit us to dissect each component of the cell movement cycle, thus al...

Discredited Korean embryonic stem cells' true origins revealed

...enetic stem cells by accident, and didn't have the tools to conclusively determine what they had created. The first isolation of parthenogenetic stem cells from humans would have been an important contribution, but the Hwang group's attempt to pass off the cells as made by nuclear transfer was instead "a w...

Taming the anthrax threat
