From the Labs from Baylor College of Medicine for September is now online. In this month’s issue, the power of social media helps solve a genetic mystery. Master regulators get super-stimulated to become cancer fighters. An ethical framework guides explanations of children’s genome results. Disrupting a cellular machine may also disrupt cancer. Scientists make many stops on the way to achieving major accolades. The Image of the Month shows cell-based trafficking of nanoparticles as taken on a scanning electron microscope by Dr. Rita Serda of the department of surgery.
