International Life Science Companies Collaborate to Support Scientific Research
News Mar 28, 2007
Olympus Microscopy has partnered with the Nature Publishing Group to present the “Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection”.
This free compilation of articles from the portfolio of Nature Reviews journals has been carefully selected to support cell biologists using microscopy and fluorescent microscopy techniques in their research.
This partnership with the Nature Publishing Group is the latest in Olympus’s ongoing programme of activities in support of life science research.
The “Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection” is a special supplement focusing on recent advances in the complex and important field of fluorescence imaging.
Written by leading researchers it covers a broad cross-section of microscopy and fluorescence microscopy applications, from basic cell biology to cancer research, gene knockout studies and drug discovery.
As well as being freely available in a printed supplement, the Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection will also be accessible as a Cell Biology Web Focus on the Nature Reviews Molecular Cell Biology website, www.nature.com.nrm.
The Nature Reviews Fluorescence Imaging Collection is available from April 5th, 2007.
Some MRSA infections could be tackled using widely-available antibiotics, suggests new research. A team of scientists used genome sequencing technology to identify which genes make MRSA susceptible to a previously defined combination of drugs. They identified a number of mutations centered around a protein known as a penicillin-binding protein 2a or PBP2a.
Bubble formation is typically a much more random process than liquid droplet formation, yet the generation of uniform drops and bubbles is very desirable in microfluidics. Researchers have now shown that under certain conditions, bubbles can also be coaxed to form spheres as perfectly matched as droplets.READ MORE
