Getting a Measure of the Volatiles in Our Foods
Researchers have succeeded in automating an established method for the gentle, artifact-avoiding isolation of volatile food ingredients.
How Do Cells Move Faster Through Mucus Than Blood?
Researchers have discovered that certain cells move surprisingly faster in thicker fluid because their ruffled edges sense the viscosity of their environment and adapt to increase their speed.
Genes That Increase Likelihood of Cancer Outlined in New Research
Forty-two hereditary genes have been identified that increase a person's risk of accumulating DNA mutations that correlate with a higher risk of developing cancer.
Largest Genetic Atlas of Zebrafish Published
Medical and life science researchers will benefit from the most comprehensive atlas yet of genetic data on zebrafish, newly published research suggests.
New Screening Technique Could Accelerate mRNA Therapy Development
Researchers have developed a system to make studies on mRNA therapies and their lipid nanoparticle delivery systems more predictive using a technique called DNA barcoding.
Mapping the Body’s Defense System: The Immune Cell Atlas
This article will provide an introduction to the Immune Cell Atlas, highlight some of the research contributing to the project and explore the wider implications of the work.
Study Reveals Why Many Cancer Cells Rely on Importing Fat
Researchers have conducted a study revealing that cancer cells are often reliant on the import of fat in low-oxygen environments, a finding that could lead to new ways to understand and slow down tumor growth.
Dissecting the Complexity of the Brain at a Single-Cell Level
Understanding the brain requires an in-depth knowledge of its components. Advanced single-cell sequencing technologies are enabling researchers to explore the secrets of this complex and mysterious organ in unprecedented detail.
Microbial Community Carbon Cycle Explored in Biological Crusts
Multiomics studies have enabled insights into the carbon cycle of microbial communities found in biological crusts in arid regions.
Complex Architecture of “Molecular Giant” Understood in Greater Detail Than Ever Before
Combining an artificial intelligence-based program that predicts protein structures with experimental and computational techniques has helped scientists figure out the human nuclear pore complex’s architecture in greater detail than ever before.
