Not only breast cancer: mutations in the BRCA gene, which are especially common among Ashkenazim, increase the risk of various types of cancer - also in men. The institute's scientists reveal how they turn healthy cells in their environment into collaborators
In response to environmental and intracellular changes, the proteins in our body don a variety of costumes that change their properties and make their identification difficult. The institute's scientists have developed a ground-breaking search engine capable of identifying these proteins with unprecedented efficiency
Weizmann Institute scientists offer a solution to a 50-year-old mystery
Weizmann Institute scientists have discovered that certain fish are born with immunity to stressful situations, which accompanies them throughout their lives and is even inherited. The findings may pave new directions for the treatment of post-trauma
Unprecedented abilities to produce thousands of enzymes pave the way for a green industrial revolution
The database also includes thousands of new biomarkers that will make it possible to detect cell death and to diagnose in the early stages a variety of diseases in the most important systems of the human body, through a blood test

Complex systems, simple principles and the audacity of a physicist
The scientists of the institute and their research partners showed that the chance of an electron to pass through a tunnel at the junction between a molecule and a light field, and the manner in which it will do so, depend to a large extent on the chirality of both the molecule and the light
A day after Prof. Dan Toufik's death, his hypothesis about the origin of life was significantly strengthened
The scientists of the institute discovered a surprising involvement of the intestinal mucus in the absorption process of copper - a metal that, like iron and zinc, is necessary for our bodies, but can be dangerous.
The research findings illustrate how changing the synapse map may lead to a change in behavior
Chinese researchers used artificial intelligence to scan combinations of metals and elements and identify compounds that would break down the free radicals that damage hair follicles
