Changes observed in the nuclei of cells emerging in mouse embryos will chart genomics of mammalian development.
UW microbiologists discovered a bacterial toxin that, when engineered, is a key part of a gene editor that can make single-base changes in human mitochondria.
Finding may help explain caffeinated coffee’s link to a reduced risk of melanoma. The researchers used an enzyme from plants and marsupials to distinguish the lesion.
DNA fragments from cytomegalovirus, a common cause of birth defects in the United States, are often too small for many standard tests to detect
A pangenomic reference will be generated to represent varied human populations in a government-funded, multi-site effort.
A new assay, reported in Science, advances research on how various cells types interpret their genetic code
This mouse cell atlas is a resource for obtaining a deeper understanding of how specific DNA elements regulate cell type identity.
Researchers are working on the vexing problem of a virus that shape shifts from one year to the next.
Deborah Fuller, a professor in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington School of Medicine, talks about her research into creating a universal flu vaccine.
