Sequencing Life on Earth, One Eukaryote at a Time

The Earth BioGenome Project (EBP), described as a “moonshot” project for biology, aims to sequence, catalog and characterize the genomes of the 1.8 million named eukaryotes on Earth, in just 10 years. Technology Networks spoke to the scientists leading the project to learn about its progress and how it will help the Earth's biodiversity crisis.

Applying Organ-on-a-Chip Tech to the Lymphatic System

Texas A&M University's Dr. Abhishek Jain and colleagues have developed the first lymphangion-chip to model the functional unit of a lymph vessel. The hope is that the chip will allow researchers to gain a clearer picture of the mechanical forces controlling lymphatic physiology and pathophysiology, which in turn will help to identify new therapeutic targets for conditions such as lymphedema.

Sailing the Genome in Search of Safe Harbors

Landing therapeutic genes safely in the genome is a key challenge facing cell and gene therapies. Researchers from Harvard's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, Harvard Medical School and the ETC Zurich in Switzerland propose a solution: "safe horbors" in the genome. Technology Networks interviewed Dr. Erik Aznauryan to find out more.

Single-Cell Sequencing Pinpoints Genetic Mechanisms Underlying Brain Lesions

Cerebral cavernous malformations (CCMs) are a potentially risky blood vessel abnormality. In a new paper, Douglas Marchuk and colleagues identified that mutations commonly linked to CCMs co-occurred in the same cells. We spoke to Marchuk to find out more about CCMs and the advantages and potential of single-cell sequencing.
