  • Research Directions in Genetically-Mediated Stevens-Johnson Syndrome/Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis February 27, 2015
    On March 3-4, 2014, NHGRI will sponsor Research Directions in Genetically-Mediated Stevens-Johnson Syndrome/Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis at Building 31 on the NIH Main Campus. The workshop aims to review current knowledge of the surveillance, pathogenesis and treatment of Stevens-Johnson Syndrome/Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (SJS/TEN); examine the role of genomi […]
  • CRISPR-Cas9 probes the inner workings of the genome in real time February 27, 2015
    January's Genome Advance of the Month describes two studies, published in Nature and Nature Biotechnology, which examine the ways researchers are using CRISPR-Cas9, a new tool that studies the genome by changing specific genes or groups of genes.
  • Papers from eMERGE highlight large-scale genomics research February 20, 2015
    Nearly 20 papers published online in 2014 highlight research on the use of DNA biorepositories and electronic medical records (EMRs) to understand the underlying genomics of disease. The papers appeared in Frontiers in Genetics and were co-authored by members of the Electronic Medical Records and Genomics (eMERGE) Network, which is supported by NHGRI.

  • Communicating science broadly March 2, 2015
    In an effort to better promote discovery science and engineering to a wider range of audiences, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has launched three new multimedia communications vehicles: a video interview series with NSF-funded scientists and program officers; a conversational style feature article; and a video weekend wrap-up of NSF-funded science new […]
  • Road safety through snowflake imaging March 2, 2015
    The technology behind the camera that revealed the intricate, imperfect beauty of snowflakes can now expose their potential danger. About three years ago, a new high-speed camera system captured freefalling ice crystals so well it might as well be yelling "freeze!". Developed at the University of Utah with support from the National Science Foundati […]
