Coke vs. Pepsi, Domino’s vs. Pizza Hut, Bud vs. Miller. Could you tell the difference them in a taste test, given that they are made in a slightly different way with slightly different starting materials? And in the end, if each option does the job they were designed to do (filling bellies!), will any slight […]

Recent studies reported here at Epigenie have identified N6-methyladenosine (m6A) as a highly dynamic RNA modification that influences all aspects of RNA biology. Furthermore, an interesting study in mouse and human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) has indicated a role for N6-methyladenosine in the switch between ESC pluripotency and differentiation. Cool stuff indeed, but whate regulates N6-methyladenosine deposition […]
Printing has come a long way since the days of Johannes Gutenberg and his famous press. Nowadays, we are printing plaster casts for broken bones, replacement parts for space stations and now, a new study shows us that we are well on our way to be able to print human organs. This version of printing, […]
“Work harder, eat less, and, I’m begging you, get a haircut!” A face-to-face meeting between a younger and an older version of yourself would surely be filled with sage advice on how to live life and grow old gracefully. Many scientists wish to recreate such a meeting between young and old neurons to study aging and […]
Much like finding water on Mars and the fight to be the next President of the USA, pluripotent stem cell-derived mini-organs (or organoids) are big news at the moment. A recent study, featured here at EpiGenie, used a brain organoid generated from patient-specific induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to unravel the molecular causes behind autism. […]
