Genetically engineered mice make human embryos more resilient to pneumonia

Mice engineered to resist the deadly coronavirus are making human embryos as well as other animal embryos more resistant to pneumonia, researchers report.In a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, the researchers used an innovative method to genetically engineer mice with immune-boosting antibodies and a “non-pneumonic” immune response.They used a modified mouse embryo, called […]

How to help an agroecologist’s research with the genome

A genetic bottleneck at an agribusiness company means scientists are still trying to figure out how to treat and protect the genomes of the crops they’re working on.And that could take years of research, a new study shows.Genetic bottleneck means scientists have fewer genes that make it into plants and more genes that are in […]
