  • Walter at Highlight HEALTH explains cell division with videos on mitosis and meiosis.
  • An experimental DNA vaccine for multiple sclerosis (MS), BHT-3009, has been developed that appears to slow the progression of the disease. It works by lowering the level of white blood cells that attack myelin, a fatty sheath coating the axons of nerve cells. The DNA vaccine contains DNA that encodes the human myelin basic protein and is injected directly into the muscles of patients with MS.
  • Newsday has a short profile of Michael Wigler, a geneticist at Cold Spring Harbor Lab, who studies the genetics of autism.
