What Is Science Telling Us About Soil Testing and Treatment?

Article

Just as soil testing is important to the farmer, working to improve upon current soil testing methods is important to the agricultural scientist. By ensuring that farmers and agricultural workers have access to the best possible soil testing tools, they will then be more able to protect and improve the health of their land as needed.

Cell Conversions Transformed From Black Box Guesswork to Systematic Discovery

Blog

Predicting the reprogramming factors necessary to induce cell conversion has largely relied on trial and error, revealing the need for a more systematic approach.

To learn more about Mogrify's approach to achieving cell conversion through transdifferentiation, we interviewed Pierre-Louis Joffrin, Corporate Development Executive at Mogrify.

Cells’ Mitochondria Work Much Like Tesla Battery Packs

News

UCLA researchers have shown that mitochondria are made up of many individual bioelectric units that generate energy in an array, similar to a Tesla electric car battery that packs thousands of battery cells to manage energy safely and provide fast access to very high current.
