What if degenerative eye conditions could be detected and treated before vision is impaired? Recent findings from the Xie Lab point to the ciliary body as a key to unlocking this possibility.
It’s still mysterious, but the biological process that underlies memory persistence is better understood now than ever, thanks to researchers from the Si Lab at the Stowers Institute.
Researchers at the Stowers Institute have developed an approach that integrates several technologies to build detailed structural models of protein complexes, which are made up of multiple proteins that assemble and work together to perform a biological function.
Researchers in the Krumlauf Lab have identified a handful of variations in an amino acid sequence critical for retaining the ancestral function of a gene over the course of 600 million years of evolution.
Two early-career Stowers investigators, Nicolas Rohner, PhD, and Sarah Zanders, PhD, were recently recognized for having a significant impact on their fields.
Robb Krumlauf, PhD, took a career detour into chemical engineering before he finally found his calling as a biologist.
A comparative study of two fish species offers important clues about vertebrate regeneration.
Several researchers at the Stowers Institute received award notifications during the past few months, including investigators, a postdoctoral researcher, and predoctoral researchers.
A new study from the Zanders Lab describes a strategy that the S. pombe fission yeast genome can use to mitigate some of the worst effects conferred by parasitic gene elements known as meiotic drivers.
Scientists in the Bazzini Lab and collaborators have harnessed CRISPR technology to target gene messages in animal model embryos to gain a better understanding of the early stages of vertebrate development.
