Article reads: In the quest to understand genomes—how they’re built, how they’re organized and what makes them work—a team of Johns Hopkins researchers has engineered from scratch a computer-designed yeast chromosome and incorporated into its creation a new system that lets scientists intentionally rearrange the yeast’s genetic material. A report of their work appears Sept. 14 as an advance online publication in the journal Nature.
