The Pursuit of Global, Sustainable and Cooperative Open Science
Technology Networks had the pleasure of speaking with Nobel Laureate Elizabeth Blackburn on her impressive contributions to science and society. She highlights early inspirations that cemented her love of science, elaborates on the research that led to her being co-awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, and explains why she is advocating for sustainable, cooperative and open science.
The Lost Women of Science
Nora Mathison illuminates the lives and works of female scientists who have been forgotten, despite their contributions shaping modern life.
Exploring the Principle of Ion Exchange Chromatography and Its Applications
Ion-exchange chromatography (IEX) is a class of liquid chromatography used to separate organic and inorganic molecules, in particular biomolecules. In this article, we explore how the technique works and its applications in this context.

Realizing the Potential of CRISPR-Cas Technology To Mitigate Climate Change
As the climate changes, we urgently need to engineer plants that can withstand harsher climatic conditions and exposure to new pests and diseases. Genome editing using CRISPR technology may be a key approach to improving agricultural production.
Return From Extinction
The prospect of "reviving" an extinct species – or a, genetic hybrid version of it – is moving closer to reality thanks to the sophistication of genome engineering technologies. In this article, sit down with Professor George Church to learn about his plans to "de-extinct" the woolly mammoth.
