Beyond sequencing
Human geneticists and cell biologists have gone beyond vague links between genes and disease to pinpoint cause and effect, in a study they see as both a poster-child for cross-discipline collaboration and a call for caution.

November 2014 EMBL Press Release
Scientists from the Opens internal link in current windowMMPU group HIV-1 formation and its inhibition have obtained the first structure of the immature form of HIV at a high enough resolution to pinpoint exactly where each building block sits in the virus. The study, published Opens external link in new windowonline in Nature, reveals that the building blocks of the immature form of HIV are arranged in a surprising way.

Innovative strategy pinpoints genes underlying cardiovascular disease risk.
Studies screening the genome of hundreds of thousands of individuals have linked more than 100 regions in the genome to the risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Researchers from EMBL and the University of Heidelberg are taking these results one step further by pinpointing the exact genes that could have a role in the onset of the disease. Their findings are published today in the Public Library of Science (PLoS) Genetics.
