Neurodegenerative diseases may be caused in part by influences from peripheral body systems as well as inflammation mediated by brain cells other than neurons. Understanding the roles of these influences is necessary to design treatments for neurodegenerative disease. Additionally, genetic tools allowing for delivery of transgenes past the blood-brain barrier are important for treatments of any CNS diseases. Discover the latest research on neurodegenerative disorders, their peripheral causes, and viral vectors for CNS delivery here.
Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.
Epigenetic memory refers to the heritable genetic changes that are not explained by the DNA sequence. Find the latest research on epigenetic memory here.
