research decoding the first deep-sea mussel genome published




a joint research led by hong kong baptist university (hkbu) and the hong kong university of science and technology (hkust) has assembled the 1.64 gigabytes genome of a deep-sea mussel, which is roughly equivalent to 50% of the size of human genome. this is the first decoded genome among all deep-sea...



study redefines hpv-related head and neck cancers




much of what we thought we knew about the human papilloma virus (hpv) in hpv-related head and neck cancers may be wrong, according to a newly published study by virginia commonwealth university (vcu) researchers that analyzed data from the human cancer genome atlas. head and neck cancers involving h...



genome editing in human cells




new techniques in molecular biology that enable targeted interventions in the genome are opening up promising new possibilities for research and application. the ethical and legal ramifications of these methods, known as "genome editing" and "genome surgery," need to be discussed throughout society,...
