In PLOS Biology this week, you can read about how plants cope with arsenic in the soil, the lengthening of tubular biological structures, disrupting protein translocation, and the need for transparency in grant reviews.
Detecting cancer-causing genes, computing how to beat jetlag and a review of research into decision-making: The PLOS Comp Biol April issue
Here is our selection of PLOS Computational Biology highlights for April. Computational prediction of cancer-associated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from SNP datasets can now be used as a tool for detecting probable cancer-causing genes. This
Is there a book that motivated you to become a scientist, or to research a certain aspect of genetics? Or perhaps your perception of science has been altered through something you’ve read? How far do
Testing a new drug on human subjects is expensive, risky and ethically complex, so the vast majority of potential treatments are first tried out on non-human animals. Unfortunately similar issues also constrain the size
