BrdU has been used for decades and has extremely wide utility. ...Read More

CRISPR reveals genetic master switches behind butterfly wing patterns

Recent work by Rachael Lallensack published in Nature, 18 September 2017 has shed light on the way in which the intricate patterns on butterfly wings form. It had been thought that the process of generating the beautiful and complex patterns on butterfly wings might be due to the action of a multitude of different genes. Recent studies, however, seem to ...Read More
