Mutational signatures help to understand the biology of cancer

Next generation DNA sequencing technologies have enabled the genome sequencing of an increasing number of tumour samples in recent years. A recently published UK study presents data on more than 12,000 tumour genomes, providing detailed analysis of mutations found in the cancer samples (Degasperi, 2022). Dávid Szüts, research group leader [...]

RNA in the cross-hairs: The exploration of an RNA modifying mechanism reveals the cause of genetic diseases and offers therapeutic applications for RNA editing

Like accents over letters can be quintessential to correctly interpret a text, the modifications of nucleic acid can have important roles in deciphering the genetic information. While the biological function of the DNA epigenetic modifications, i.e. those that do not affect the genetic sequence has been extensively studied for decades, [...]

A viral protein showed the way to the soft spots of cell signaling protein networks

Researchers in the Biomolecular Interaction group at the Research Center for Natural Sciences investigate signaling enzymes involved in the regulation of cell’s life and death. In their recent study, published in Nature Communications, they were curious about how a herpes viral protein affects cell growth regulating signaling pathways and turns [...]

RCNS researchers identify the neural basis of distractor interference resistance

Researchers of the Brain Imaging Centre (BIC), Research Centre for Natural Sciences (RCNS) identified the neural mechanisms responsible for the processing of task-irrelevant, distracting visual stimuli. By employing state-of-the-art neuroimaging techniques, researchers of the BIC revealed that contrary to what was previously thought, distracting visual stimuli cannot be simply filtered [...]
