Meat and cheese may be as bad as smoking, according to a new study led by Valter Longo, biological sciences professor at USC Dornsife.
New research by Peter Ralph of USC Dornsife has confirmed that everyone on Earth is related to everyone else on the planet. So the Trojan Family is not just a metaphor. Turns out, we’re also linked by genetics more… more>
Since his recent selection as an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, Remo Rohs continues to demonstrate the research and creativity necessary to become a leader in the scientific community. In April and May, the assistant… more>
USC Dornsife scientists have discovered how two different structural apparatuses collaborate to protect repetitive DNA when it is at its most vulnerable — while it is being unzipped for replication. The centromere… more>
Certain mutated cells keep trying to replicate their DNA — with disastrous results — even after medications rob them of the raw materials to do so, according to new research from USC. New imaging techniques… more>
A USC Dornsife scientist has developed an innovative method of predicting the shape of DNA, for the first time making it expedient to do so on a genomic scale. “DNA can have variations in shape, which are read by… more>
