News Jun 22, 2007
deCODE biostructures, Inc. has announced the signing of a collaborative research agreement with Genus Oncology, LLC.
Under the agreement, deCODE will conduct gene to structure research on protein targets for Genus Oncology. The research and milestone-based collaboration provides Genus Oncology with access to deCODE’s expertise in de novo protein crystal structure determination, from the engineering of synthetic genes to the determination of high resolution crystal structures.
Analytical Tool Predicts Disease-Causing GenesNews
Predicting genes that can cause disease due to the production of truncated or altered proteins that take on a new or different function, rather than those that lose their function, is now possible thanks to an international team of researchers that has developed a new analytical tool to effectively and efficiently predict such candidate genes.
Single Gene Change in Gut Bacteria Alters Host MetabolismNews
Scientists have found that deleting a single gene in a particular strain of gut bacteria causes changes in metabolism and reduced weight gain in mice. The research provides an important step towards understanding how the microbiome – the bacteria that live in our body – affects metabolism.READ MORE
Gotta Sample 'Em All! Underwater Pokéball Captures Ocean LifeNews
A new device developed by Wyss Institute reseachers safely traps delicate sea creatures inside a folding polyhedral enclosure and lets them go without harm using a novel, origami-inspired design. The ultimate aim is to allow the sea creatures to be (gently) analyzed in high detail.READ MORE
