Scientists at Georgia Tech say a new technique for tagging the genome and studying the RNA of a virus could help them discover better antiviral drugs and perhaps even more effective vaccines.
British X-ray crystallographer made great strides in our understanding of the molecular makeup of DNA and RNA but missed out on Nobel Prize.
Researchers inject 10,000 mosquito embryos with tiny fragments of RNA designed to turn off the gene "zpg" that is necessary for sperm development.
A team of MIT researchers has successfully cured a rare genetic liver disease in mice by "editing" the DNA to correct the mutated gene.
Penn researchers are the first to directly convert a non-heart cell type into a heart cell via RNA transfer, managing to change both a brain cell and a skin cell into a heart cell.
Take specially treated frog eggs, inject some insect RNA, and stick the concoction up a robot's nose to give the bot a keen sense of smell.
A novel device out of Brown University could lead to the widespread, real-time tracking of influenza.
