Triple-negative breast cancer slowed with FDA approved drug
FDA-Approved drug curbs tumor growth in mouse model for deadly form of breast cancer.

Genes Protect Themselves Against Being 'Turned Off'
Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) researchers have settled a century-old debate over whether DNA methylation acts to silence gene expression, or if genes are turned off by other means before they are methylated.

Gene movements observed in vivo
Certain parts of DNA are highly mobile and their dynamic motion participates in controlling gene expression. Researchers have just developed a method of observing the organisation and movements of these genes in time and space.

Egg growth in infertile women induced, with one birthResearchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have identified a way to induce the ovaries of some infertile women to produce eggs.

Triple-negative breast cancer target identified
Often deadly “triple-negative” breast cancers might be effectively treated in many cases with a drug that targets a previously unknown vulnerability in the tumors, according to a new UC San Francisco study.

Bad to the Bone: How Some Breast Cancer Cells Thrive
Some breast cancer cells have a leg up on survival—the genes they express make them more likely to spread and prosper in bone tissue.
