The Trend of Human Whole Genome Sequencing:Multilateral Participation

In 1996, A pair of Twins was born in California. It looks like they are not beloved by God and are a little different from normal children. They are diagnosed as cerebral congenital palsy in two and lived with medicine. When they are five, things got worse, they can even not walk normally and well-control […]

The Photography of BBC: Can Sharks Live Peacefully With Human Beings?

Shark, the king of the sea, is the most fierce animal in the sea. When we talk about sharks the only thing we can remember is how dangerous and frightening they are. We often hear the news that an unlucky guy was tore apart by sharks when his was enjoying his date with sea. Poor […]

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). The researchers found that the change of C9orf72 will make RNA molecular disrupt the transport of protein. This will lead to a traffic jam in the molecular of external cell nucleus of brain and […]

The Past and Future of GM Food:Prohibition or Not

(GM corps, more easily storage and full particles) The world is crazy again about GM food, not for it’s ability of increasing production or retaining freshness this time, but for a prohibition of GM crops from Scottish Government. The news was announced on 9th August. The Cabinet Secretary gave their reason of this ban: “Scotland […]

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 […]

Obesity Related Genes

Yesterday one of my friends complained again that she had gain ten pounds last month. She said she was 167 pounds now and sometimes she even feels hard to walk. Obesity is a global problem. Many people is struggling to loose weight but still can not find an effective way. They keep diet, exercise, and […]

$120 Million-Investment For CRISPR Technology From Bill Gates and Other 13 Investors

An article published in Forbes in the morning yesterday is undoubtedly a big bomb for biotechnology. Our genius IT CEO Bill Gates and his friends decided to put their hands to “The Genesis Engine”, the new favorite of DNA editing in the lab, CRISPR. They poured $120 Million, as the title of this article said, […]

Arguments about CRISPR technology: A Revolution of Science

CRISPR topics are hot again now. Since the very beginning researchers found CRISPR sequences in December 1987, it has been widely used in many fields. The credit is obviously. But this year researchers reported that they had edited human embryos with CRISPR, which triggered an ethical debate. CRISPR, the full name is clustered regularly interspaced […]

Modification of T Cells by Using Cas9 Ribonucleoproteins Provides Hope for Treatment of Cancer

  Recently, scientists from San Francisco successfully modified T cells by using Cas9 RNPs, and this thesis was published on PNAS on July 27, 2015. You may have question about this: What is T cell? And why this research has great significance on diseases like cancer and HIV? Scientists have explained everything in their articles. […]
