Combining synthetic biology approaches with time-lapse movies, a team led by Caltech biologists has determined how some proteins shape a cell's ability to remember particular states of gene expression.
A new leadership chair in Caltech’s Division of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering (CCE) will amplify the Institute’s support of its scholars’ freedom to pursue the most interesting and challenging lines of inquiry.
Sleep is still a mysterious process that is difficult to study in vertebrate animals. By conducting a genetic screen in zebrafish, biologist David Prober and his colleagues have identified a gene that seems to serve as nature's stimulant.
Caltech board chair emeritus and longtime Compaq chairman Benjamin M. (Ben) Rosen (BS ’54) and his wife, Donna, have made a bequest commitment to advance scientific exploration at the intersection of biology and engineering.
