Stem-cell researchers solve mystery of relapse in acute myeloid leukemia

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Leukemia researchers led by Dr. John Dick have traced the origins of relapse in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) to rare therapy-resistant leukemia stem cells that are already present at diagnosis and before chemotherapy begins.

They have also identified two distinct stem-cell like populations from which relapse can arise in different patients in this aggressive cancer that they previously showed starts in blood stem cells in the bone marrow.

Publication of sunflower genome in Nature will accelerate global research and breeding programs

Monday, May 22, 2017

Cultivated sunflowers are one of the five largest oilseed crops in the world and until now sunflower is the last of these crops to have its genome fully sequenced. This genome represents a cornerstone of future work to improve genetic diversity and utilize the sunflower’s stress resistance and ability to grow across different climates.
