Retractable Protein Nanoneedles The ability to control the transfer of molecules through cellular membranes is an important function in synthetic biology; a new study from researchers at Harvard’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and Harvard Medical School (HMS) introduces a novel mechanical method for controlling release of molecules inside cells.Leukemia’s Surroundings Key to its Growth Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin have discovered that a type of cancer found primarily in children can grow only when signaled to do so by other nearby cells that are noncancerous.Common Cell Transformed into Master Heart Cell By genetically reprogramming the most common type of cell in mammalian connective tissue, researchers at the University of Wisconsin—Madison have generated master heart cells — primitive progenitors that form the developing heart.‘Smelling’ Prostate Cancer A research team from the University of Liverpool and the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) has reached an important milestone towards creating a urine diagnostic test for prostate cancer that could mean that invasive diagnostic procedures that men currently undergo eventually become a thing of the past.Genetic Mutation that Prevents Diabetes Complications The most significant complications of diabetes include diabetic retinal disease, or retinopathy, and diabetic kidney disease, or nephropathy. Both involve damaged capillaries.A Crystal Clear View of Biomolecules Fundamental discovery triggers paradigm shift in crystallography.Could the Food we Eat Affect Our Genes? Almost all of our genes may be influenced by the food we eat, according to new research.NIH Seeks Research Applications to Study Zika in Pregnancy, Developing Fetus Institute has announced that the new effort seeks to understand virus effect on reproduction and child development.Iron in the Blood Could Cause Cell Damage Concentrations of iron similar to those delivered through standard treatments can trigger DNA damage within 10 minutes, when given to cells in the laboratory. Neanderthal DNA Influences Human Disease Risk Large-scale, evolutionary analysis compares genetic data alongside electronic health records.
Innovative Benign-by-design Flow Chemistry Protocols: From Nanomaterials Synthesis to Biomass/Waste Valorization In this webinar Professor Rafael Luque will present recent developments in benign-by-design continuous flow chemical protocols for various topics ranging from nanomaterials synthesis (supported nanoparticles) to biomass and waste valorisation.
Lab-on-Chip Platform Technologies for Point-of-Care Testing and Cell Culturing This presentation focuses on recent advances in platform technologies developed at Micronit for applications within point-of-care diagnostics and cell culturing. A few examples developed within research projects are presented to illustrate the applicability of the developed technologies.
The Bru-seq Technology Platform for Nascent RNA analysis Mats Ljungman, Professor, University of Michigan will present a set of novel techniques to analyze many aspects of gene expression based on the capturing of nascent RNA.
A New Proteomics Workflow for the Identification of PTMs (Post Translational Modifications) Quantitative proteomics is an essential tool in molecular biology and biomedical sciences. SILAC is a commonly used workflow in which proteins are labelled with stable isotopes, digested into peptides and separated by chromatography for detection in a mass spectrometer.
