Sugar Metabolism Gene Suggests a New Way to Fight Obesity
News   Oct 10, 2018

Researchers say they have discovered a gene mutation that slows the metabolism of sugar in the gut, giving people who have the mutation a lower risk of diabetes, obesity, heart failure, and even death. The researchers say their finding could provide the basis for drug therapies that could mimic the workings of this gene mutation.

Computer Model Finds the Best Spot to Split Proteins
News   Oct 05, 2018

A computer-guided algorithm may help scientists find just the right spot to split a protein and then reassemble it to functionality, according to a new study. Researchers say this could be another step — perhaps even a dance step — toward using chemical and light signals to create new medical treatments and biosensors.
