Synthetic gene drives to alter animals in the wild

By |2019-02-06T19:41:29+00:00July 23rd, 2014|

George Church's group published in eLife an article entitled "Concerning RNA-guided gene drives for the alteration of wild populations"in which they describe how CRISPR could be used to alter the genome of animals in the wild. A possible application of this approach could be to edit the genome of mosquitoes to prevent them from propagating [...]

PLoS Extends Synthetic Biology Collection

By |2019-02-06T19:41:29+00:00July 14th, 2014|

In 2012, Mark Isalan and myself compiled a list of synthetic biology papers published in PLoS ONE (See The PLOS ONE Synthetic Biology Collection: Six Years and Counting). This impressive corpus of synthetic biology papers was highlighted by PLoS in a journal-specific collection. For various reasons, the decision was made at the time to focus on [...]

Virginia Tech Libraries supports open-access journal PeerJ

By |2019-02-06T19:41:30+00:00June 11th, 2014|

The open access journal PeerJ is changing the open-access publication business model. Instead of a charging a publishing fee per article, it is a relying on a membership model. Each author pays a $99 lifetime membership to the journal but do not incur publication fees afterwards. The journal has been setting up partnerships with institutions [...]

Measurements modeling transcription noise makes the cover of Cell Cycle

By |2019-02-06T19:42:59+00:00October 7th, 2013|

The October issue of Cell Cycle includes an article reporting our efforts to measure and model the transcriptional noise affecting the the regulatory network controlling the cell cycle in the baker yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae). The journal cover page features an image derived from this work.   Cell Cycle. 2013 Sep 4;12(19). [Epub ahead of print] Measurement [...]
