Fifteen years ago, scientists had determined the entire sequence of the genetic letters making up our DNA. But this was only a step in a long journey: in addition to the letters, information is also encoded in the packing of DNA. A team of researchers has now generated comprehensive 3-D maps of the…

A genetic modification in the mucous membrane of the esophagus, the Barrett esophagus, can lead to esophageal cancer. If certain biomarkers are contained in these tissue alterations, so-called miDNA, these are extremely short DNA strands, it could be an indication that this preliminary stage of…
