FMI News Article
Genes that time the transition to adulthood are well-studied in the roundworm C. elegans, and at least partially conserved in mammals, where they regulate the onset of puberty. Juvenile worms turn into adults when a protein called LIN-29 accumulates in sufficient amounts. By...

IRB News Article
A research team led by the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB) in Bellinzona, affiliated to the Università della Svizzera italiana, has identified a molecular network required to balance the responses of human lymphocytes. The activities of these immune cells must be...

Press Release / Medienmitteilung Universität Basel
A research team has uncovered a genetic signature that enables cells to adapt their protein production according to their state. The researchers of the University of Basel’s Biozentrum report in “Genome Biology” that this newly discovered mechanism...
