Groundbreaking Gene Therapy for Retinitis Pigmentosa

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is an x-linked, inherited disease that causes the progressive degeneration of rod photoreceptors in the retina. This disease affects ~15,000 people in Britain and slowly leads to an irreversible form of blindness. There are several genes which [...]

Design of a Synthetic Yeast Genome

A multidisciplinary team at The Department of Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University, have designed a synthetic eukaryotic genome. The project, known as Sc2.0, resulted in a highly modified Saccharomyces cerevisiae genome which was ~8% smaller, with 1.1 megabases inserted, deleted or altered. [...]
