The Transcendence of Chemical Genetics

Genetics is one of the most complex and misunderstood areas of biology. In fact, scientists haven’t uncovered the functions of as much as one-third of genes in the genome of E. coli. A paper stemming from the University of California and published in the journal Cell discusses chemical genetics and its role in discovering biological […]

Genetic Research and Mouse Models Uncover Causes of Autoimmunity

Ever since the 1950s – when James Watson, Francis Crick, Rosalind Franklin, and other pertinent scientists uncovered the structure of deoxyribose nucleic acids (DNA) – the field of genetics has erupted and played a significant role in scientific research. More recently, scientists from the National Institutes of Health have uncovered that a gene called BACH2 […]
