Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source reveals inner-workings of essential protein found throughout life.
Double-strand breaks in DNA happen every time a cell divides and replicates.
Cancer cells are resourceful survivors with plenty of tricks for staying alive.
Listed below are the selected highlights for the July 2012 issue of the Genetics Society of America's journal, Genetics.
Researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging have corrected the genetic mutation responsible for Huntington's Disease (HD) using a human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) that came from a patient suffering from the incurable, inherited neurodegenerative disorder.
A new study published in Science May 11 is shedding light on the molecular details of PARP-1, a DNA damage-detecting enzyme that when inhibited has been shown to be effective in fighting cancer and other diseases.
Scientists from the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience at Delft University of Technology have discovered a key element in the mechanism of DNA repair.
It's been more than 50 years since James Watson and Francis Crick showed that DNA is a double helix of two strands that complement each other.
Looking for ways to halt the uncontrolled growth of cancer cells, scientists at Johns Hopkins have found that a new class of drugs, called PARP inhibitors, may block the ability of pre-leukemic cells to repair broken bits of their own DNA, causing these cells to self-destruct.
