For the first time, scientists can see in minute-time resolution how cells package chromosomes into highly condensed structures prior to cell division.
An interferon cell receptor spurs cell suicide in mouse fetuses infected with Zika virus and could play a role in certain pregnancy complications.
A method developed by HHMI investigators sifts through hundreds of millions of potential targets to find a precise cancer beacon. The results may lead to better immunotherapies, which harness the immune system to attack tumors.
A single treatment of a genome editing agent partially preserved hearing in mice with genetic deafness. The work could one day help scientists treat certain forms of genetic hearing loss in humans.
