With a new genome sequence, more diverse data sets, and population-specific projects, scientists are making progress in representing humanity’s real DNA diversity.
Millions of people with weakened immune systems are poorly protected against Covid by current vaccines. Scientists in Germany have developed a new vaccine intended especially for them.
CAR T therapies juice the immune system. In cancer, they have cured patients who had little hope for survival. Now scientists are asking "What else can they do?"
It’s time to overhaul the chemical industry — for the sake of fenceline communities and the rest of the planet.
