The class was a favorite of many students because of its small size and […]
PULLMAN – In fall 2010, Washington State University will offer the state’s first Professional Science Master’s, a graduate-level program designed to help science students transition into high-paying careers. The new interdisciplinary option in molecular biosciences will be available both online and on the Pullman campus through the School of Molecular Biosciences (SMB). It will […]
PULLMAN–A suite of proteins that changes the arrangement of DNA in chromosomes plays a key role in enabling cells to repair damage to their DNA, according to a new study by researchers in Washington State University’s School of Molecular Biosciences. The report, by scientists Feng Gong, Deirdre Fahy, and Michael Smerdon, offered the first direct […]
If DNA is like a set of encyclopedias, containing every bit of information necessary to create life, some researchers look at individual words, other researchers look at particular books, and a very few try to figure out the binding.But 2006 Regents Professor Michael Smerdon of the School of Molecular Biosciences says that binding, better known […]
