DNA structure impacts rate and accuracy of DNA synthesis
DNA structure impacts rate and accuracy of DNA synthesis 13 November 2018DNA sequences with the potential to form unusual conformations, which are frequently associated with cancer and neurological diseases, can in fact slow down or speed up the DNA synthesis process and cause more or fewer sequencing errors.
New gene therapy reprograms brain glial cells into neurons
New gene therapy reprograms brain glial cells into neurons 13 November 2018A new gene therapy can turn certain brain glial cells into functioning neurons, which in turn could help repair the brain after a stroke or during neurological disorders like Alzheimer's or Parkinson’s diseases.
