New gene map shows cancer’s weak link 

Scientists have mapped out the genes that keep our cells alive, thereby revealing which genes are crucial in diseases like cancer. To find the genes that are essential for cell survival, researchers, using a gene editing technology called “CRISPR”, switched off one by one almost 18,000 genes — 90 per cent of the entire human genome. The data revealed a ... Read More »
