How the Brain Paints the Beauty of Nature
A research team from the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics has investigated how our brains proceed from merely seeing a landscape to feeling its aesthetic impact.
Potential Evolutionary Plastic Trap for Juvenile Turtles
Small juvenile sea turtles from the Pacific and Indian Oceans have a very high occurrence of ingested plastic, a new study shows. The life cycle of marine turtles might "trap" juvenile turtles in habitats with high amounts of plastic debris.
A Blood Test To Measure Your Natural Body Clock
Unlike routine blood tests for cholesterol and hormone levels, there’s no easy way to precisely measure a person’s individual circadian rhythm. That might just be set to change.
Mass Spectrometry Brings Resolving Power to Biopharma
In the early 20th century, mass spectrometry (MS) was used to measure the mass of atoms and demonstrate the existence of isotopes. Now, MS is used to study a broad range of molecules including small hydrocarbons, proteins, peptides, carbohydrates and DNA.
The Global Pandemic and Menstrual Cycles: What Do We Know?
What research has been conducted that explores menstrual cycles throughout the COVID-19 global pandemic? How scientifically sound are these studies, and what can they tell us? In this interview, we spoke with Dr. Gemma Sharp and Dr. Kayleigh Easey to learn about research gaps and opportunities in this space.
How To Optimize Next-Generation Sequencing Workflows
Download this guide to learn more about techniques such as bulk tissue RNA sequencing, single-nucleus RNA sequencing and whole-genome DNA sequencing.
Both IHC and ICC are powerful tools that provide insights into gene expression, spatial relationships and biomarker identification in a wide variety of applications. These applications include basic research, assessment of normal and disease states within human and animal tissues and assessment of plant pathology.
Clinical Omics and Mass Spectrometry
Due to its broad-based applicability to detect compounds with a wide range of masses, along with its high sensitivity, mass spectrometry (MS) has been used extensively in a range of omics analyses and applications. In this listicle, we explore the use of MS-based data in a variety of clinical omics settings.
How Stem Cells Are Shaping Drug Discovery
Stem cells are increasingly being used in new and innovative ways to improve the drug discovery process – spanning academia, biotech start-ups and large pharmaceutical companies.
