Technology Networks spoke with Russell Monson, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Arizona, to learn more about a recent study in which poplar trees were genetically modified to not harm air quality.
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
In this article, we revisit the many twists and turns of the aducanumab clinical trials and explore the scientific community's response to the latest analysis of the data.READ MORE
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
The measurement of low-molecular-weight metabolites and their intermediates reflects the dynamic response of the body to physiological, pathophysiological and developmental stimulus (e.g., aging). In this article, we explore how metabolomic profiling is advancing an array of scientific disciplines, including medicine and agriculture.
In December 2018, a diverse group of scientific researchers gathered to challenge a key issue in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce: gender bias, and sexual harassment. Now, the conclusions from the meeting have been eloquently described by 23 authors in an article published in the journal Science.READ MORE
In this article, science writer Molly Campbell explores the growing trend of "epigenetic wellness", and puts her own DNA to the test, courtesy of Chronomics.READ MORE
A biomarker that represents the physiological environment of a cell at any given moment holds strong promise for quick and non-invasive diagnostics. The lipidome is gaining more traction among scientists in this field of research, and in this article, we explore why.READ MORE
