The cell's garbage disposal system changes in cancer and allows it to escape the immune system
Researchers have discovered that two epigenetic events (removing and adding methyl from DNA) lead to the differentiation of stem cells into muscle cells and thus to the regeneration and healing of muscles after their injury
The molecule that carries with it a message of regeneration
An examination of known growth laws that were discovered recently, led to the discovery of new growth laws
Scientists have successfully sequenced the entire human Y chromosome, revealing critical genomic features. This groundbreaking research offers deep insights into human biology and potential medical advances. The new sequence reveals genomic factors in fertility, including sperm production.
The new system was discovered in bacteria - but is also used in corals, bees and others
New discoveries about how the result of infection with a virus from the herpes family is determined and where dormant viruses may hide in the body
The new technology - DBlink - is based on the SMLM method and an artificial intelligence algorithm (neural networks) and makes it possible to reproduce fast dynamics of biological objects in super-resolution in living cells
Why do we tend to gain weight as we get older?
New research suggests that there may be two other significant factors that natural systems weigh: the information-theoretic nature of the genetic code and the principle of maximum entropy
From depression and anxiety to diabetes - health conditions resulting from chronic stress affect women and men differently. New study in mice maps at the single-cell level molecular differences in the stress response in the brains of females and males, and may pave the way for personalized treatments
A research team led by Prof. Yossi Buganim from the School of Medicine of the Hebrew University succeeded in reprogramming human skin cells into functional placental cells so that there is no need to extract stem cells from embryos
Forecasting dust storms is a complicated matter. A new study was able to predict storms in our region with a high level of accuracy - and thereby outline how artificial intelligence can be harnessed to understand processes in the atmosphere
The origin of the mysterious macrophages, known in scientific language as Tingible Body Macrophages (TBM), is in progenitor cells of the blood system that emerge from the bone marrow and settle in the lymph nodes, where they quickly and efficiently digest the remains of antibody-producing cells of the immune system
The long and winding road to doubling the amount of biological material available for research
The development is expected to revolutionize the improvement processes of agricultural crops
The institute's scientists discovered a new type of inflammasome - a "smoke detector" of the immune system that ensures more precise control of the height of the flames of an inflammatory reaction. The findings may pave the way for treatments for inflammatory bowel diseases
Scientists have published draft results from a comprehensive research effort underway to capture all human genetic variation
The grant was given to the company for the purpose of developing agricultural crops with high oil seeds, increased absorption of carbon dioxide and drought resistance * The grant is within the EU Horizon program of the European Union, and was approved following the successful POC from the previous program launched in 2016
The institute's scientists reveal how cancer leads to fatal emaciation and point the way to treatment
Weizmann Institute of Science scientists revealed that a botanical relative of lettuce produces no less than 40 cannabinoids - active substances with medical potential that characterize the cannabis plant
The scientists of the institute have identified the cells in the brain that are responsible for the grace periods of the multiple sclerosis patients. The findings may pave the way for new treatments
To direct substances to their purpose within the body, a delicate balance must be reached between stability and solubility
The scientists of the Weizmann Institute of Science and their research partners identified for the first time the cells that are responsible for one of the most basic actions of life - the production of a hormone that gives an order to produce red blood cells; The findings are expected to break new ground for innovative medical treatments in various anemia conditions
