Cellular survival over genomic perfection

Damage to DNA occurs continuously. DNA quality control mechanisms, such as DNA repair and replicative pathways, mitigate that damage and preserve the DNA sequence. Mutations are believed to arise when DNA lesions are not repaired appropriately, and they are thought to be an indicator of ineffectual DNA quality control.

The next generation of CRISPR-Cas technologies and applications

CRISPR-Cas systems have revolutionized genome editing, and the CRISPR-Cas toolkit has been expanding to include single-base editing enzymes, targeting RNA and fusing inactive Cas proteins to effectors that regulate various nuclear processes. Consequently, CRISPR-Cas systems are being tested for gene and cell therapies.

A Completely New Way to Picture DNA in Cells

Just how are things organized in a living cell? What's next to what, in three dimensions? That is, of course, a really hard question to answer, but we're going to have to be able to answer it in a lot of contexts (and at high resolution) if we're ever going to understand what's going on down there.
