  • New tools illuminate mechanisms behind overlooked cellular components’ critical roles

    Friday, Nov 30, 2018
    by Adam Hadhazy for the Office of Engineering Communications

    Creating new tools that harness light to probe the mysteries of cellular behavior, Princeton researchers have made discoveries about the formation of cellular components called membraneless organelles and the key role these organelles play in cells.

    In two papers published Nov. 29 in the journal Cell, researchers from multiple Princeton departments report on the conditions that lead to the formation of membraneless organelles and the impact that the formation has on cellular DNA.
