Reproducibility is now recognized as a core feature of good scientific practice but too many papers fail to meet the grade. We talked to Leslie D McIntosh, CEO of Ripeta, on the topic of reproducibility. In this interview, we ask Leslie about the concepts within Ripeta’s recent report on the state of reproducible science in 2019.READ MORE
Impostor syndrome is experienced by millions of people around the world cross culturally, and describes difficulty internalizing one's accomplishments or abilities, and instead attributing their success to other factors. In this article, we explore the prevalence of impostor syndrome in STEM and the impact it has on the scientific community.READ MORE
Amino acids are the building blocks that form polypeptides and ultimately proteins. Consequently, they are fundamental components of our bodies and vital for physiological functions such as protein synthesis, tissue repair and nutrient absorption. Here we take a closer look at amino acid properties, how they are used in the body and where they come from.READ MORE
An international team of researchers has found a potential drug that may prevent neuronal death through glucose metabolism modification in stressed neurons.
We report the opening night of Biodesign Here Now, an event featuring architects, artists, textile designers, and many more creatives who have found ways to bring together biology and design in their work, showing a way forward for collaboration between the two fields.READ MORE
An 8-gene assay which can non-invasively identify patients suffering from antibody-mediated rejection of kidney transplant has recently been discovered in a research study led by scientists at KU Leuven.READ MORE
The All of Us research project will sequence the genome of one million individuals in the United States with the aim to enable advances in personalized medicine.READ MORE
The journey from gene to protein is complex and tightly controlled within each cell. It consists of two major steps: transcription and translation. Here, we describe the processes of transcription and translation as they take place in eukaryotic cells.
