Whether it’s our personal of professional lives, we’re told time and time again that making the right connection is key. It turns out that that’s also true for our brains; making proper neuronal connections early is make or break. Altered neuronal connections can cause neurodevelopmental disorders. Often, these disorders are associated with mutations in genes […]

Get all the latest highlights from the literature and special features covering trending epigenetics, ncRNA, and gene regulation research.
It’s clear that humans and mice have taken very different evolutionary paths, but new research suggests that transcription from long terminal repeat retrotransposons (LTRs), which are endogenous retroviral elements that can induce DNA methylation in oocytes, may have acted as guiding lights along the forks in the road. Besides the obvious differences in size, furriness, […]
