Mitochondria Shown to Trigger Cell Ageing An international team of scientists has for the first time shown that mitochondria, the batteries of the cells, are essential for ageing.Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.Editing of Embryos Approved in the UK The Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) has approved a research application from the Francis Crick Institute to use new "gene editing" techniques on human embryos.Microbes Take Their Vitamins Scientists exploit organisms' needs in order to track 'vitamin mimics' in bacteria.Machine Learning Uncovers Unknown Bacterial Features Technique robustly identified characteristic gene expression patterns in response to antibiotics, low oxygen conditions.CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing Advances Again UC Berkeley researchers have made a major improvement in CRISPR-Cas9 technology that achieves an unprecedented success rate of 60 percent when replacing a short stretch of DNA with another.Disrupting Cell’s Supply Chain Freezes Cancer Virus When the cancer-causing Epstein-Barr virus moves into a B-cell of the human immune system, it tricks the cell into rapidly making more copies of itself, each of which will carry the virus. Why Do Some Infections Persist? In preparing for the possibility of an antibiotic onslaught, some bacterial cultures adopt an all-for-one/one-for-all strategy that would make a socialist proud, University of Vermont researchers have found. ASCB: A CELLebration of Cell Biology The last major congress of the year, ASCB is less a platform for launching new products, but one for confirming and consolidating the trends that have emerged over the past 12 months. Squeezing Cells into Stem Cells EPFL scientists have developed a new method that helps cells turn in usable stem cells. The new approach involves “squeezing” cells with a gel, and paves the way for large-scale production of stem cells for medical purposes.
