Cells Have An Ear For Music Too

Scientists from Kyoto University In Japan have discovered that sound can suppress gene expression in cells.

A Genetic Approach To Breeding High-Yield Rice

Scientists have uncovered the regulator of a gene that limits growth of wind-pollinated flowers in rice, which could lead to improved crop yield.

Circadian Genes Help Predict Mood Changes In Bipolar Mice

Genes controlling the circadian rhythm could be closely linked to mood change-like behaviors associated with bipolar disorder, scientists say.

Mathematical Model Helps To ‘Tune’ Gene Expression

Thanks to this mathematical model, researchers can now reliably predict how multiple transcription factors will act together to regulate gene expression.
