  1. China launches brain-imaging factoryRead the original story w/Photo

    Yesterday | NatureNews

    Neuroscientists who painstakingly map the twists and turns of neural circuitry through the brain are about to see their field expand to an industrial scale. A huge facility set to open in Suzhou, China, next month should transform high-resolution brain mapping, its developers say.


  2. PostdoctoralRead the original story

    Friday Jul 28 | Nature Neuroscience

    Postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Linda Van Aelst, Professor at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory . The main focus of research will be to study the roles of Rho-linked genes associated with human diseases in the development and function of neural circuits, using molecular, genetic and viral engineering, optogenetics, imaging, electrophysiology, and behavior analysis.


  3. Rare disruptive variants in the DISC1 Interactome and Regulome:...Read the original story

    Jun 20, 2017 | Molecular Psychiatry

    University of Edinburgh Institute of Genetics & Molecular Medicine, Western General Hospital, Crewe Road South, Edinburgh, EH4 2XU, UK E-mail: [email protected] ; Professor WR McCombie, Stanley Institute for Cognitive Genomics, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, 1 Bungtown Rd, Cold Spring Harbor, NY 11724, USA.E-mail: [email protected] Schizophrenia , bipolar disorder and recurrent major depressive disorder are common psychiatric illnesses. All have been associated with lower cognitive ability, and show evidence of genetic overlap and substantial evidence of pleiotropy with cognitive function and neuroticism.


  4. Fixing the tomato: CRISPR edits correct plant-breeding snafuRead the original story w/Photo

    May 18, 2017 | NatureNews

    Geneticists harness two mutations - each cherished by breeders, but detrimental when combined - to improve on 10,000 years of tomato domestication. From their giant fruits to compact plant size, today's tomatoes have been sculpted by thousands of years of breeding.


  5. Arctic drilling, controversial reforms and new views of SaturnRead the original story w/Photo

    May 3, 2017 | Nature

    Cassini catches new views of Saturn NASA's Cassini spacecraft plunged between Saturn and its rings on 26 April, beginning the final stages of its 20-year mission. At its closest, Cassini whizzed just 300 kilometres from the innermost visible edge of Saturn's rings and 3,000 kilometres above the top of the planet's clouds.


  6. BioRxiv preprint server gets cash boost from Chan Zuckerberg InitiativeRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 26, 2017 | NatureNews

    BioRxiv, the hub for preliminary versions of biology research papers, has announced that it will begin receiving "significant" financial support from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative , a philanthropic effort started by Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and his physician wife Priscilla Chan . The multi-year funding package - terms of which have not been disclosed - will pay for staff, technology development and other infrastructure at bioRxiv, says John Inglis, the executive director of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press and co-founder of the 3-year-old site , which posted its 10,000th manuscript last week.


  7. CRISPR studies muddy results of older gene researchRead the original story w/Photo

    Apr 5, 2017 | NatureNews

    Scientists face tough decisions when the latest gene-editing findings don't match up with the results of other techniques. Jason Sheltzer, a cancer biologist at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York, was on the hunt for genes involved in tumour growth.


  8. A makeover for the world's most hated cropRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 15, 2017 | NatureNews

    Nathan Lakey practically has to shout to be heard over the whirring machinery in the laboratory at Orion Biosains near Kuala Lumpur. One source of the din, and a major point of pride for Lakey, is a microwave-oven-sized robotic assembler that is snapping plastic widgets together and laser-etching them with serial numbers.


  9. Cancer: Tumours live in diverse areasRead the original story

    Mar 8, 2017 | Nature

    Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest cancers, possibly in part because the tumours are surrounded by relatively large amounts of connective tissue called stroma, which promotes their growth. To learn more about the stroma, David Tuveson at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in New York and his colleagues grew 3D mouse pancreatic tumours and cultured them with pancreatic cells that develop into connective-tissue cells called fibroblasts.


  10. Post-Doctoral Position at Cold Spring Harbor LaboratoryRead the original story

    Oct 5, 2016 | Nature Neuroscience

    Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory invites applications for a joint post-doctoral position in the laboratories of Jesse Gillis and Josh Huang . The successful candidate will join a team at working to understand the molecular and functional basis of neuronal identity and diversity in mammalian brains.
