FOR FUN
The Peeps experiments: A seasonal celebration of science

THINGS TO DO

RESEARCH
Biologists unravel another mystery of what makes DNA go 'loopy'
In a paper published in Science, Emory biologists working in Victor Corces' lab discovered another key to how DNA forms loops and wraps inside the cell nucleus — a precise method of "packing" that may affect gene expression.

SPECIAL FEATURE
It's alive! How Frankenstein's monster became an icon
From labs to libraries, theaters to theology, Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" continues to spark wonder and debate 200 years after it was published. Emory faculty explore a cultural icon and classic novel at the nexus of major questions about science, society and philosophy.
