Better than CRISPR? Another way to fix gene problems can be safer and more flexible science

Tools like CRISPR, which cut DNA to change its sequence, are moving incredibly close to the clinic as a treatment for some genetic diseases. But far from the spotlight, researchers are increasingly excited about an alternative that leaves the DNA sequence unchanged. These molecular tools target the epigenome, the chemical labels that adorn DNA, and …

Monkeypox is a new global threat. African scientists know what the world is facing science

As monkeypox fuels fears here-we-go-pain in a pandemic-weary world, some researchers in Africa have their own sense of déjà vu. Another neglected tropical disease of the poor attracted attention only after it began to infect people in rich countries. “It’s like your neighbor’s house is on fire and you just close your window and say …

Sleep Science: Researchers in the Northwest Pacific Explore the Secrets of a Good Night’s Rest

Early prototypes of any technology can be a little naive. Just ask Sofia Fluck, a test engineer at the Eugene Brain Electrophysiology Laboratory. She sits hunched over her desk with a small orange flat-blade screwdriver, trying to replace the electronics box lid with the size of a deck of cards. The screw swings as she …
