Japanese researchers have successfully created immature human eggs out of stem cells, bringing us a step closer to make babies from skin cells.
Harvard researchers reported how they systematically profiled every cell in developing zebrafish and western claw-toed frog embryos to establish a roadmap revealing how one cell builds an entire organism.
US Scientists managed to identify the gene that caused Alzheimer’s disease. Not only that, but they also managed to neutralize the gene so that it did not lead to Alzheimer’s development.
Researchers have fused living and non-living cells for the first time in a way that allows them to work together, paving the way for new applications.
New techniques in DNA self-assembly allow researchers to create the largest to-date customizable patterns with nanometer precision on a budget.
The technology could have multiple applications, from identifying victims in a mass disaster to analyzing crime scenes.
They’re designed to kill cancer cells, and they kill themselves in the process.
An experimental gene therapy for a rare skin disease sheds light on the cellular mechanisms that help healthy skin continuously regenerate.
The Allen Institute for Brain Science has added the first data from human nerve cells to a publicly available database for researchers to explore and understand the building blocks of the human brain.
Genes which determine animal complexity -- or what makes humans so much more complex than a fruit fly or a sea urchin -- have been identified for the first time.
