Study reveals key step in cell protein production from genes

DNA is the information molecule. It stores instructions for making other large molecules, called proteins. These instructions are stored inside each of your cells,...

Single-cell RNA profiling

Single-cell RNA sequencing has emerged as an indispensable tool to dissect the cellular heterogeneity and decompose tissues into cell types and/or cell states, which...
MIT researchers have designed nanoparticles that can deliver messenger RNA to specific organs. In this image, lung cells expressing the synthetic mRNA show up as red. Image: Piotr Kowalski

New materials to improve delivery of therapeutic messenger RNA

Messenger RNA, a huge nucleic corrosive that encodes genetic data, can guide cells to create particular proteins. Unlike DNA, mRNA isn't for all time...
