HHMI researchers show that rising temperatures can cause spread of malaria to areas where the disease had not been endemic historically.
Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) scientists have created a portrait of a DNA-snipping protein called Cas9, a powerful research tool used in many labs for genome editing.
In the last five years, 4,800 students at 73 colleges and universities nationwide have taken HHMI's Science Education Alliance (SEA) Phage Hunters Advancing Genomics and Evolutionary Science (PHAGES) research course.
New research from HHMI scientists reveals how a foreign-DNA-destroying system, known as CRISPR, efficiently locates its DNA targets within a bacterial genome.
By studying which genes modern humans still retain from our Neanderthal ancestors, researchers are able to tell a clearer story about the biological impact of human-Neanderthal interbreeding.
In his "Dialogues of Discovery" talk at Janelia on February 26, 2014, HHMI investigator Jeremy Nathans will explore the diverse ways in which color vision has evolved.
HHMI seeks to appoint up to 25 new biomedical researchers through a national open competition.
