Research Highlights

A sticky-spaghetti-with-meatballs model may be sufficient to describe how the nucleus in each of our cells selectively allows the entrance and exit of certain molecules, while blocking others to protect genetic material and normal functions of the cell. That is the conclusion based on research by an international team of scientists, led by Ralf Richter from CIC biomaGUNE and Bart Hoogenboom from the London Centre for Nanotechnology (UK), and published in the journal eLife.
