Abstract

Endogenous retroviruses and LTR retrotransposons are mobile genetic elements that are closely related to retroviruses. Desilenced endogenous retroviruses are associated with human autoimmune disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. C. elegans and related Caenorhabdites contain LTR retr...read more

Transposons for Gene Editing

Transposons can replicate and spread through the host’s genome and therefore be used as a genetic tool for analysis of gene function. Discover the latest research on the use of transposons for gene editing here.

RNAi & Gene Silencing

RNA Interference (RNAi) pathway is involved in post-transcriptional gene silencing, transcriptional silencing and epigenetic silencing as well as its use as a tool for forward genetics and therapeutics. Discover the latest research here.

RNAi & Gene Silencing (Preprints)

RNA Interference (RNAi) pathway is involved in post-transcriptional gene silencing, transcriptional silencing and epigenetic silencing as well as its use as a tool for forward genetics and therapeutics. Discover the latest preprints on RNAi here.

Autoimmune Diseases

Autoimmune diseases occur as a result of an attack by the immune system on the body’s own tissues resulting in damage and dysfunction. There are different types of autoimmune diseases, in which there is a complex and unknown interaction between genetics and the environment. Discover the latest research on autoimmune diseases here.

Antivirals

Antivirals are medications that are used specifically for treating viral infections. Discover the latest research on antivirals here.

Interferon Stimulated Genes

Interferon-stimulated gene products take on a number of diverse roles. Collectively, they are highly effective at resisting and controlling pathogens. Discover the latest research on interferon-stimulated genes here.

Transposable Elements

Transposable elements (tes) have profound effects on the structure, function and evolution of their host genomes.

Neurodegeneration: Genetics

Neurodegeneration is the progressive loss of structure or function of neurons, including neuronal death, and leads to several diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. This feed focuses on the genetic alterations that underlie neurodegeneration.
