Table of Contents

New Movement in Parkinsons Recent genetic and cellular discoveries are among the advances pointing to improved treatments for this increasingly common disorder
New Bulls-Eyes for Drugs
A familiar class of cell-surface receptors turns out to offer an array of fresh targets than could yield new treatments for disorders ranging from HIV infection to obesity Capturing a Killer Flu Virus
The deadliest flu strain in history has been resurrected. What can the 1918 virus reveal about why it killed millions and where more like it may be lurking?
Preparing for a Pandemic One day a highly contagious and lethal strain of influenza will sweep across all humanity, claiming millions of lives
It may arrive in months or not for years but the pandemic is inevitable. Are we ready?
Synthetic Life Biologists are crafting libraries of interchangeable DNA parts and assembling them inside microbes to create programmable, living machines Hitting the Genetic Off Switch
A host of start-ups is speeding development of a new class of drugs that block the action of RNA The Alternative Genome The old axiom one gene, one protein no longer holds true
The more complex an organism, the more likely it became that way by extracting multiple protein meanings from individual genes.
