Method Genetically Reprograms Cells To Build Artificial Structures

The golden color illustrates the deposition of biocompatible polymers on two genetically targeted neurons at right, sparing neighboring cells. The selective deposition of these polymers, which can be electrically insulating or conductive, makes it possible to modulate target cell properties in living tissues and animals. Blue diamond particles represent the monomers to make the polymer diffusing globally through the tissue. The technology only enables polymers to form in targeted cells.

How Cells Move and Don't Get Stuck

News

Cell velocity, or how fast a cell moves, is known to depend on how sticky the surface is beneath it, but the precise mechanisms of this relationship have remained elusive for decades. Now, researchers have figured out the precise mechanics and developed a mathematical model capturing the forces involved in cell movement.

Why Are Queen Bees Failing To Reproduce?

News

Honey bee health has been on the decline for two decades, with queen bees failing faster than they have in the past in their ability to reproduce. New research offers clues about what’s behind queen bee failure, finding that when sperm viability is low, the expression of a protein known to act against pathogens such as bacteria and viruses is high.
