Researchers have created a map of gene regulation in human cortical neurogenesis. The study reveals a number of factors that govern brain growth and the development of some brain disorders.
A new study sheds light on the mechanisms of gyrus formation.
A groundbreaking Nature study reports researchers have used CRISPR gene editing technology to correct a mutation that causes hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in embryos. The technique also prevents the mutation from passing to future generations.
CRISPR gene editing has allowed researchers to prevent angiogenesis of the retina occurring in mice. Researchers say the new technology could help prevent vision loss in those with retinal diseases.
Researchers have encoded a 'primitive' video from the DNA in living cells. The Nature study reports this is the first step towards a 'molecular recorder' that could make it possible to get read-outs of changing internal states of neurons as they develop in the brain.
