Mexican cavefish populations are used by researchers as models to study adaptations to environmental changes. Now, new research published in BMC Evolutionary Biology suggests that the origin of these cavefish populations is potentially as recent as 20,000 years ago, going against widely held assumptions that these populations have a very ancient origin.
In honor of Parkinson’s Awareness Week, we are sharing the new and exciting discoveries in Parkinson’s disease treatment. Drs. Han-Lin Chiang and Yih-Ru Wu, leaders in Parkinson’s disease research, discuss some of the most promising advancements in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
Precision targeting offers hope after a life-changing cancer diagnosis. However, some cancers that initially respond to targeted chemotherapy become treatment-resistant — and this may have nothing to do with the drug itself. Hidden layers of regulation that control the activity of genes can produce drug-resistant, surviving cells. New research, published today in BMC Systems Biology helps explain how therapy-resistant cancers arise — findings with important implications for the future of cancer therapy.
