1 (3)Breakthrough of the Year!
On 21 December, the editors and news writers of Science will announce their selection of the most significant scientific breakthrough of 2017. Find source



1 (5)Nine researchers sue University of Rochester over sexual-harassment allegations
Lawsuit alleges that the institution mishandled complaints about cognitive scientist Florian Jaeger.  Find source



1 (4)CRISPR-Cas9 technique targeting epigenetics reverses disease in mice
Scientists report a modified CRISPR-Cas9 technique that alters the activity, rather than the underlying sequence, of disease-associated genes. The researchers demonstrate that this technique can be used in mice to treat several different diseases. Find source


1 (2)A 100-fold leap to GigaDalton DNA nanotech
DNA bricks enable self-assembly of 3-D nanostructures from 10,000 unique components, advancing DNA nanotech from Mega to GigaDalton scale. Find source
