July 6, 2012

We all agree on this: the discovery of this new particle, announced last 4th July at CERN, is of historical importance. But are we sure of its real identity?

The sense of "antisense" RNA

12 October 2012

October 15, 2012

While studying Parkinson's disease, an international research group led by SISSA scientists in Trieste made a discovery which can improve industrial protein synthesis for therapeutic use. They managed to understand the use of RNA when it is not involved in the protein-coding process: the protein synthesis activity of coding genes can be enhanced, for example, by the activity of the non-coding one called "antisense".
