Researchers present sensor prototype that can rapidly, precisely, and cost-effectively measure molecular signals for cancer.

Revolutionising CRISPR-Cas

Revolutionising CRISPR-Cas

Researchers have refined the famous CRISPR-Cas method. Now, for the very first time, it is possible to modify dozens, if not hundreds, of genes in a cell simultaneously.
