Gnomes, knowns, and unknowns
A Genetics Explainer video
Curing or treating diseases may rely more on cancelling gene expression and “disease expression,” than gene editing, although many future treatments are likely to combine genetic techniques.

Biomarkers for COVID-19
Researchers find the flu shot may protect against Covid-19 too. Meanwhile, decoding cell-surface sugars presents a major breakthrough in the fight against infections of all types.
Supporting new research
Researchers sequenced the genome of Alexander Fleming’s original penicillin mold and compared it to later versions. What they found may be the answer to antibiotic-resistant microbes.
