Nucleic Acids Research
Nucleic Acids Research is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published by Oxford University Press. It covers research on nucleic acids, such as DNA and RNA, and related work. Some of its content is available under an open access license. According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal s 2010 impact factor is 7.836. The journal publishes two yearly special issues, one dedicated to biological databases, published in January since 1993 and the other on biological web servers, published in July since 2003.
Computer program identifies rare mutations harbored within diverse populations of cancer cells and microorganisms
A tumor is not a uniform mass of identical cells. However, teasing apart genetic heterogeneity within a biopsied tumor can be difficult. Researchers often fail to tell the difference between a rare variant ...

Protein that represses critical checkpoint protein for cellular growth helps drive tumor development
(Medical Xpress)—One of the hallmarks of cancer is unchecked cellular growth. Fortunately, our cells contain a number of tumor suppressor proteins, including the cell cycle regulator p21, to keep cell growth ...
