When you go to the shops to buy the weekly groceries, it’s quite likely you’ll find yourself thinking about where your food has come from. Is this organic? Is that free-range? You are perhaps less likely to find yourself wondering, “Is this food fake?”READ MORE
The lipidome refers to the totality of lipids in cells. In this article, PREMIER Biosoft's Sanjib Meitei explains how his team developed a new technique that can quantitate and separate lipidome sammples in just 15 minutes.READ MORE
Bacteriophage (phage) are viruses that specifically infect bacteria. They have a two-phase lifecycle, residing in a dormant state within the host genome (lysogenic cycle) or hijacking the host cellular machinery for their own replication (lytic cycle). Here we will explore the important steps of the lytic cycle.READ MORE
An effective way to increase crop yield is to minimize losses to pathogenic microorganisms by improving the disease resistance of crop plants. A recently emerging alternative to conventional methods for improving plant disease resistance is cold plasma.READ MORE
The world of microfluidics has generated a host of intricate tools on a microscale, ranging from cheap paper-based lateral flow tests to organ-on-a-chip models designed to facilitate personalized diagnostic tests.
This article explores the extent to which microfluidic tools are filling a gap in clinical and point-of-care diagnostics, and touches on how microfluidics could improve the drug discovery process.
In recent years the genomes, transcriptomes, and epigenomes of multicellular organisms have been captured in a number of high profile organism-wide atlases. Can proteomics measure up to next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies when it comes to single cell analysis? Here are the highlights from the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) World Congress summarizing the latest developments in the field of single cell biology.READ MORE
Being able to make conclusions about data trends is one of the most important steps in both business and science. Through the magic of least sums regression, and with a few simple equations, we can calculate a predictive model that can let us estimate our data and give us much more power over it. If you want a simple explanation of how to calculate and draw a line of best fit through your data, read on!READ MORE
Marilyn Cornelis, of the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, has spent years researching how coffee affects our body. In this interview, she explains how coffee affects our brain, interacts with cannabis, and why listening to your body might be the best way to decide how much coffee to drink.READ MORE
Integrating new technologies into laboratory workflows can be a complex transition. This article outlines why, when it comes to diagnosing infections, it's an investment worth making.READ MORE
Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is a powerful tool increasingly being used in many fields including cancer research, biomarker discovery and drug development. This article explains why MSI is the technique of choice in many labs, discusses its use in research, and covers how some inherent challenges are being addressed.READ MORE
