New Discovery about CRISPR: Treatment of SCD

Recently, researchers form Dana-Farber found that a small change of DNA can avoid some genetic defects of SCD, this research was published on nature on September 16. Sickle cell disease is a kind of genetic disease, which is caused by the mutation of hemoglobin. This disease is common in Africa, and also takes place in […]

Iphone Press Conference: Highlights of Medical function

Last week, Apple Inc announced it’s new products for this season. Many things make “iFans” crazy: the newest software(ios9), the newest color(rose gold), and the bigger RAM.

The Relationship Between Gene Mutation and Dementia

Recently, a thesis published in nature revealed that how does the genetic mutation lead to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis(ALS)and frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

Rare Cell Types Were Discoverd by Single-cell mRNA Sequencing

Recently, researchers form Netherlands announced that they developed a new algorithm named RaceID and conbined this RaceID with sequencing datas of transcriptome, then they found some rare cell types in intestine. This is meaningful for our understanding of tissue biology and the formation of cells in tissues. Traditional methods of finding cells or isolating subpopulation […]
