Key early steps in gene expression captured in real time by CSU researchers

For the first time, CSU researchers have observed early RNA transcription dynamics by recording where, when and how RNA polymerase enzymes kick off transcription by binding to a DNA sequence.

CSU researchers discover key protein associated with dementia, other diseases

Understanding the role of a tiny protein in the brain could be the key to understanding the development of dementia associated with neuro-degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s.

Genetic material packaged inside cells is more solid than liquid

The discovery could lead to more accurate understanding of how the genome is encoded and decoded.

Color-coded biosensor illuminates in real time how viruses attack hosts

New experiments and computational models reveal in single-molecule detail how viruses initiate translation of genetic material into proteins.
