The microbial community populating the human body plays an important role in health and disease, but with few exceptions, how individual microbial species affect health and disease states remains poorly understood. A new study by Princeton researcher Mohamed Abou Donia and his colleagues, appearing in the Dec. 13 issue of the journal Science, gives scientists new tools to explore and understand the human microbiome.
Combining light and a protein linked to cancer, researchers at Princeton University have created a biological switch to conduct an unprecedented exploration of cellular development in the embryo.
Bonnie Bassler has been awarded the Genetics Society of America medal in recognition of her groundbreaking studies of bacterial chemical communication.
A newly developed system for turning on the therapeutic activity of genes could benefit the treatment of a broad range of genetic diseases.
Researchers in the Petry Lab have successfully recreated a key process involved in cell division in a test tube, uncovering the vital role played by a protein that is elevated in over 25% of all cancers.
