As the body’s cell divide and age, mistakes can pile up in the genome's "tags"

Without the c-Kit gene, colon cancer cells grow in a disorderly, aggregated manner and are invasive (A); when c-Kit expression is restored in these cells, they revert to a more normal organization (B)

Dr. Ayelet Erez finds that clinical work and lab research are a powerful combination

The tips of two adult fruit fly testes, viewed under a confocal microscope, are filled with dividing germ cells (green). About one quarter of these germ cells die by an alternative death pathway called germ cell death (pink and red)

A newly discovered cell-death pathway could help fight cancer
“Deregulation scores” of hundreds of brain tumor patients: Each row corresponds to a pathway (that is, a biochemical process), and each column to a sample taken from a patient. Every colored spot stands for a number – the value of the “deregulation score” of the corresponding pathway, as determined for a particular patient. Dark blue stands for the activity of the pathway in normal brain tissue, whereas dark red indicates a high level of deviation from normal behavior. The clearly distinct group of normal b
