Craig Venter: 20 years of decoding the human genome
The human genome is 99% decoded, the American geneticist Craig Venter announced two decades ago. What has the deciphering brought us since then?
Scientists in La Jolla Make Progress Understanding New Coronavirus Strain
Gene Drives: New and Improved
As the science advances, policy-makers and regulators need to develop responses that reflect the latest developments and the diversity of approaches and applications.
Pink shoes and a lab jacket: Finding your way as a female scientist
Women in science tell high school girls they, too, can change the world

How AI can help us decode immunity
Artificial intelligence and machine learning will be the keys to unraveling how the human immune system prevents and controls disease
Construction of an Escherichia coli genome with fewer codons sets records
The biggest synthetic genome so far has been made, with a smaller set of amino-acid-encoding codons than usual — raising the prospect of encoding proteins that contain unnatural amino-acid residues.
Researchers have swapped the genome of gut germ E. coli for an artificial one
By creating a new genome, scientists could create organisms tailored to produce desirable compounds
