How genome doubling helps cancer develop
Researchers at EPFL and UNIL have uncovered a new way in which cancer can develop: whole genome doubling (WGD) changes the way DNA is organized in the 3D space, leading to the activation of oncogenes that drive cancer growth.
EPFL will train students on sustainability
Starting fall 2024, all EPFL first-year students will be required to take a core class in sustainability, and each department will introduce a sustainability-oriented Bachelor’s class and Master’s class with a focus on real-world applications. These changes come as part of EPFL’s Teach4Sustainability initiative, which also includes integrating sustainability more deeply into existing curricula.
