Cellular Origin of Skin Cancer Identified Tuesday, July 12, 2016 Scientists have identified ‘cell of origin’ in the most common form of skin cancer, and followed the process that leads to tumour growth.How Plants Sense Electric Fields Monday, July 11, 2016 An international group of researchers has identified the sensor plants use to sense electric fields. The voltage sensor discovery could contribute to the understanding of how the Ebola virus enters human cells.Google and EI Partner for Next Generation of Coders Friday, July 08, 2016 The Earlham Institute's open-source project for visualisation of biological data BioJS acts as mentor organisation for Google Summer of Code 2016.DNA Production Facility Begins Operation Friday, July 08, 2016 Scientists mark the opening of the UK's first fully automated DNA construction and modification facility.A 3D Paper-Based Microbial Fuel Cell Wednesday, July 06, 2016 Researchers have developed a proof-of-concept 3D paper-based microbial fuel cell (MFC) that could take advantage of capillary action to guide the liquids through the MFC system and to eliminate the need for external power. Complex Mouse Behaviours Linked to the Genes that Influence Them Wednesday, July 06, 2016 Two novel genes were associated with methamphetamine sensitivity and anxiety-like behavior.Decoding the Genome of the Olive Tree Tuesday, July 05, 2016 A team of scientists from three Spanish centers has sequenced, for the first time ever, the complete genome of the olive tree. This work will facilitate genetic improvement for production of olives and olive oil, two key products in the Spanish economy and diet.Monsanto, Nomad Bioscience Announce Collaboration Wednesday, June 29, 2016 Monsanto and Nomad Bioscience have announced a licensing agreement whereby Monsanto has obtained rights to apply Nomad’s proprietary technology to its genome-editing projects aimed at enhancement of agricultural crops. Four Newly-Identified Genes Could Improve Rice Wednesday, June 29, 2016 A Japanese research team have applied a method used in human genetic analysis to rice and rapidly discovered four new genes that are potentially significant for agriculture. These findings could influence crop breeding and help combat food shortages caused by a growing population.
