In a perspective article published in Nature, Giuseppe Testa and colleagues critically review the origin, nomenclature, and classification of these popular neuronal 3D cellular models. Their work proposes […]

Genetic variants are alternative versions of the DNA sequence that can sometimes be associated with the risk of developing a disease, including autoimmune disorders. Determining the causality between genetic variants and autoimmunity is difficult, due to technical limitations of existing mapping strategies. Blagoje Soskic and collaborators summarise how Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have contributed to […]
