In a new study scientists have harnessed advances in proteomics to extensively profile the secretions of senescent cells which are implicated in aging. Their analyses are collated in a database that is now available for researchers in the field.READ MORE
If you want to build a foundational understanding of genomics in both health and disease, it's important to be able to distinguish between the different type of genetic mutations that can occur. Here, we take a look at some of the mutations that can be encountered and the impact they have on the genome.READ MORE
Here, we examine one common branch of cell death, apoptosis, and explain why studying aberrations in apoptotic signaling is important for understanding and addressing a range of human pathologies. We also highlight techniques that enable studies of apoptosis.READ MORE
Neuroscience 2019, the world’s biggest conference of brain science, finished just over a month ago. In the wake of some particularly inflammatory headlines, we take a closer look at whether claims that new model systems for studying the brain could produce sentience in a jar have any truth to them.
In this article, we discuss the challenges scientists face when employing conventional benchtop centrifuge systems, and explain how the latest technological advances are helping laboratories to overcome them, allowing organizations to improve efficiency and achieve more reliable results.
What do we mean by lab of the future? What innovations are required to get there? These are the key themes explored by this year's Lab of the Future Congress, summarized in this article.READ MORE
