By silencing a mechanism that allows cancer cells to reject anti-cancer drugs, a new breakthrough out of MIT and Harvard could dramatically increase the efficacy of treatment.
New research might shed light on how we got here by demonstrating that chemical components of our DNA could be produced in the brutal conditions of space.
Researchers at the Harvard Wyss Institute have developed a simple, printed paper test that could be used for pathogen detection, including cases of ebola.
For the first time, researchers create a new organism based on E. coli that passes along artificially engineered DNA.
