Genes Work in Networks
Professor David Anderson explains that individual genes do not exist in a vacuum. Rather, genes interact with one another as part of a network.
So, as far we know, no individual gene exists in a vacuum. All of the genes exist as part of a network of interactions with other genes and other proteins and it is this functioning in a network that gives the gene the particular role that it has.

1148. Gene-brain Interactions
Professor David Anderson discusses how genes, proteins, and the brain interact.
1218. Small World Protein Networks
Professor Seth Grant explains that a small world protein network is a network where all proteins are closely connected.
1443. Neural Networks
Networks are the engines that drive our brain, they exist at every level of organization. Genes, proteins, and neurons all form highly integrated complex networks.
515. Function of the DISC1 Gene
Professor David Porteous describes how his group is trying to uncover the function of the DISC1 gene.
1068. The Cytoskeleton
Professor David Van Vactor describes the structure of the cytoskeleton, which acts as a scaffold for the cell.
16896. iPlant Genotype to Phenotype
Purpose: iPlant's "Genotype to Phenotype" Grand Challenge generates computational tools to help scientists understand gene and environment interaction.
1156. Mushroom Bodies
Professor David Anderson explains that the mushroom body is a structure in the insect brain involved in learning and memory. It has been compared to the cerebral cortex in humans.
1090. Synaptic and Neuronal Networks - Differences
Professor William Kristan explains that synaptic networks differ from neuronal networks in that they are relevant to HOW cells interact.
15995. Romanov handwriting comparison
During a court case in Germany that spanned two decades, evidence was carefully examined to determine if, in fact, Anna Anderson was Anastasia Romanov.
1277. Molecules for Memory
Communication in brain cells is guided by interactions between genes and biochemicals at the synapse. These interactions can lead to the formation of new synapses.
