Developed: the most extensive map of G protein-coupled receptors in humans

An international consortium of scientists, participated in by researchers from the University of Barcelona and the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL), has developed the most extensive map to date on the interactions of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCR) in human being

How was the sixth DNA base discovered?

A few weeks ago, Manel Esteller's team published, in the journal Cell, research that discussed the discovery and functional characterisation of N6-methyladenosine (6mA), also described as the sixth DNA base.

This discovery has brought epigenetics, a discipline that is changing the way we understand biology, back into focus. In 2011, the bioentrepreneur and researcher Nessa Carey drew a curious comparison in her book The Epigenetics Revolution:
