Sorting Through Cellular Statistics Friday, July 31, 2015 Aaron Dinner, professor in chemistry, and his graduate student Herman Gudjonson are trying to read the manual of life, DNA, as part of the Dinner group’s research into bioinformatics—the application of statistics to biological research. First Artificial Ribosome Designed Friday, July 31, 2015 Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University have engineered a tethered ribosome that works nearly as well as the authentic cellular component, or organelle, that produces all the proteins and enzymes within the cell. Molecular Clues to Serious Illnesses to be Explored Friday, July 31, 2015 The University of Manchester is to lead a new £2.9 million molecular pathology research project to improve diagnosis and treatment of non-cancerous diseases within the NHS. The Genetic Roots of Adolescent Scoliosis Thursday, July 30, 2015 Scientists at the RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences in collaboration with Keio University in Japan have discovered a gene that is linked to susceptibility of Scoliosis. Biodesix, Biognosys Collaborate Thursday, July 30, 2015 The companies have announced that Biodesix® will begin offering Biognosys’ HRM technology as part of its companion diagnostic development capabilities to develop novel protein assays for the oncology market.HIV Susceptibility Linked to Little-Understood Immune Cell Class Thursday, July 30, 2015 High levels of diversity among immune cells called natural killer cells may strongly predispose people to infection by HIV, and may be driven by prior viral exposures, according to a new study.New Tech Enables Epigenomic Analysis with a Mere 100 Cells Wednesday, July 29, 2015 A new technology that will dramatically enhance investigations of epigenomes, the machinery that turns on and off genes and a very prominent field of study in diseases such as stem cell differentiation, inflammation and cancer has been developed by researchers at Virginia Tech. TOPLESS Plants Provide Clues to Human Molecular Interactions Tuesday, July 28, 2015 Scientists at Van Andel Research Institute have revealed an important molecular mechanism in plants that has significant similarities to certain signaling mechanisms in humans, which are closely linked to early embryonic development and to diseases such as cancer.Toxin from Salmonid Fish has Potential to Treat Cancer Tuesday, July 28, 2015 Researchers from the University of Freiburg decode molecular mechanism of fish pathogen.
