Researchers identify key proteins that help establish cell function
Researchers at the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine have developed a new way to parse and understand how special proteins called “master regulators” read the genome, and consequently turn genes on and off. … Read the full story from the UC San Diego News Center
The principal investigator of the reported study is Christopher K. Glass, MD, PhD, professor of medicine in the Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism and professor of cellular and molecular medicine at UC San Diego.
He is on the faculty of the UC San Diego Institute for Genomic Medicine.
