The MS4A gene cluster is a key modulator of soluble TREM2 and Alzheimer’s disease risk

Genetic variants in triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells 2 ( TREM2 ) are associated with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) risk. Soluble TREM2 (sTREM2) concentrations in cerebrospinal ...

CRISPR-Cas Swiss scientists enhance efficiency of gene editing technique

Swiss scientists have improved a widely-used genetic engineering technique, making it possible to modify multiple genes in a cell simultaneously.

CRISPR can now edit multiple genes at once

With a new refinement, researchers can use the CRISPR method to edit multiple genes at once, rather than just a few at a time.

Making Human DNA Invisible to the Watchful Eyes of Bacteria

Scientists describe a new technique to genetically engineer bacteria by making human-made DNA invisible to a bacterium's defences.
