Research spotlight

The immune system doesn't innately recognize that cancer cells are abnormal, but now researchers can genetically modify a person's own immune cells to attack cancer cells. This type of immunotherapy is recognized as a promising strategy for the treatment of a variety of cancers...and that's Good Science!

Good science begins with selecting the right methods and reagents, especially when research targets are challenging. In this work, cancer researchers developed a method to amplify challenging BRCA targets, including those that are GC-rich or over 13 kb in length, using two-step PCR under a single set of conditions.
