Senior Science Writer

In the editorial team Molly reports on a broad range of scientific topics, covering the latest breaking news and writing long-form pieces for The Scientific Observer. She is a fervent believer that science – and science communications – should be accessible to everyone. In 2020, she created the Teach Me in 10 video series, where weekly guests discuss and teach a scientific concept in less than 10 minutes. Prior to joining Technology Networks in 2019, Molly worked as a clinical research associate in the NHS and as a freelance science writer. She has a first-class honors degree in neuroscience from the University of Leeds and received a Partnership Award for her efforts in science communication.

Wellness and Illness From a Precision Quantification Perspective

In this interview, Aaron Hudson, Vice President & General Manager, Global Marketing & Strategy at SCIEX, discusses why precision quantification, specifically quantitative mass spectrometry (MS), is the best approach for measuring the transition from "wellness" to illness.

Sculpting Never-ending Art Using Nature’s Natural Tools, Proteins

Proteins biological building blocks. Fibrous proteins such as keratins, collagens and elastins are built up from their individual components to form structures such as tendons, muscle fibers and bones. This is the natural course of biology – the instructions for assembly are organic. What happens when it is no longer nature guiding the building blocks, but rather, scientists? The borders of science and art become blurred.

Sex Affects Gene Expression in Mammals

Men are from Mars and women are from Venus, so the saying goes. The differences between the sexes have been explored across a variety of disciplines over many years: philosophy, literature and, of course, science. From a biological perspective, however, the effect that sex has on gene expression, particularly in autosomal (sex-linked) genes, has been a relatively unmapped area – until now.

5 Key Challenges in Proteomics, As Told by the Experts

The Evolution of Proteomics featured a series of interviews with experts in the field of proteomics research. We asked each of the experts what, in their opinion, are the greatest challenges currently existing in proteomics, and how can we look to overcome them?

In the “Nick” of Time: Researchers Identify a Surprising Behaviour of CRISPR Nucleases

In a recent academic collaboration, scientists discovered another surprising behavior of the Cas9 and Cpf1 enzymes – a behavior which may have implications when developing novel therapies with CRISPR. We spoke with Brett Robb, the Scientific Director for RNA and Genome Editing at New England Biolabs Inc, and Becky Fu (previously a graduate student at Stanford University and now a Postdoctoral fellow at UCSF) to learn more about their research.

DNA and RNA: Why It’s All About Integrity

In this interview, we spoke with Knut Wintergerst, PhD, General Manager of Biomolecular Systems and Solutions (BSS) and Diagnostics and Genomics Group (DGG) at Agilent to learn more about why DNA and RNA sample integrity is important to scientists and how it can be maintained and analyzed.

Researchers Use Cigarette Cropland to Grow Medical and Industrial Proteins

Scientists have successfully reared genetically engineered tobacco plants to produce medical and industrial proteins outdoors in the field.

Drop-seq Applied Successfully in Plant Cells for the First Time

An open-source RNA analysis platform, Drop-seq, has recently been applied successfully in plant cells for the first time. We spoke with Christine Shulse, PhD, from the DOE Joint Genome Institute to learn more about this innovative breakthrough and its potential applications.
