In the Journal Club this month, we will be exploring a new study published in Nature Structural and Molecular Biology, where researchers demonstrated that by manipulating the DREAM protein complex, a major regulator of DNA damage response, it may be possible to reduce the number of DNA mutations accumulated with age. Dr. Oliver Medvedik will...
