With many disease-causing bacteria ratcheting up their shields against current drugs, new tactics are vital to protect people from treatment-resistant infections.
Scientists have completed a major effort to map the regulatory landscape of the mouse genome at a single-cell resolution.
In thousands of single cells from embryos, both cell type and developmental stage can be deduced from measurements of chromatin accessibility.
UW Medicine researchers recently lead a successful effort to create "designer" stem cells that might lead to advances in cancer and aging, they say.
The roundworm stars in the first-ever compilation of gene readouts in every kind of cell in an animal.

UW Medicine researchers have developed a technique for inserting a gene into specific cell types in the adult brain in an animal model.
Research has identified a new way that viruses keep infected cells alive – so the viruses can use the cells to reproduce. The finding suggests it may be possible to target this process to treat viral infections.
A new cryo-electron microscope, which can reveal cellular and viral structures at near-atomic resolution, will soon be arriving in Seattle.
Textbook diagrams of cells show a cursory membrane, nucleus and mitochondria. They have never adequately conveyed cells' variation and complexity.
