Researchers conducted CRISPR screens in traditional cell culture media versus a physiologic medium that more closely mimics human blood, and found that the relative essentiality of many genes could vary with these different conditions.
Cesar Dominguez's family emigrated from Mexico to the U.S. at a young age. Growing up in a relatively homogenous community led him to seek out more diverse perspectives as he honed his research skills in structural biology. He now studies how cells can withstand and transmit mechanical force.
On Thursday, February 11 at 4 pm, join us for a compelling presentation & discussion moderated by Whitehead Institute Member Pulin Li on what Whitehead Fellows Silvia Rouskin and Kipp Weiskopf are learning about SARS-CoV-2 & how their research may aid in the fight against future viruses.
In this special episode of AudioHelicase, we talk to three researchers about the cells in our bodies that can regenerate – and those that can’t. We ask, why can some cells no longer renew themselves? And, importantly, can we change that?
Germline cells live in a never-ending loop, forming the body’s most tangible link from generation to generation. In this short video, Yukiko Yamashita, Ruth Lehmann and David Page talk about their work on tracking germline cells’ throughout their migration to the gonads and eventual commitment to their fates.
