Scientists design way to track steps of cells’ development

Scientists have developed a new tool described as a ‘flight data recorder’ for developing cells, illuminating the paths cells take as they progress from one type to another. This cellular tracking device could one day help scientists guide cells along the right paths to regenerate certain tissues or organs, or help researchers understand the wrong turns some cells might take on their way to becoming cancerous.

New understanding of mysterious ‘hereditary swelling’

For the first time ever, biomedical researchers have unveiled cellular defects that lead to the rare disease hereditary angioedema (HAE), where patients experience recurrent episodes of swelling that requires immediate treatment. This new understanding is an important step towards gene therapy for patients.

Geneticists make new discovery about how a baby’s sex is determined

Medical researchers have made a new discovery about how a baby’s sex is determined: it’s not just about the X-Y chromosomes, but involves a ‘regulator’ that increases or decreases the activity of genes which decide if we become male or female.
