However, … Continue Reading Researchers identify precision medicine, suppressor gene for acute myeloid leukemia.
Antigen receptor genes are assembled by controlled, large-scale deletions and inversions. Errors in this process, known as V(D)J recombination, produce aberrant genomic rearrangements, which can fuel the development of T- … Continue Reading Researchers identify points where incorrect immune cell DNA editing causes blood cancer.
A team of researchers led by Duke Cancer Institute have identified key events that prompt certain cancer cells to develop resistance to otherwise lethal therapies. By mapping the points of … Continue Reading Researchers begin to map epigenetic methylation in specific cancer drug resistance.
