New research at the University of Chicago has identified changes in neuronal circuits in the cerebellum that were linked to increased sensory-avoidant behavior in a mouse model of autism.
Minglei Zhao’s team uses cryo-electron microscopy to flash freeze live action in cells and capture the process of ubiquitination.
Scientists from UChicago and Spain use CRISPR to show how genes that control growth at the end of fish fins play the same role in fingers and toes.
