How To Choose a Spatial Biology Platform for Your Lab
In this article, Jason T. Gammack looks at some of the earliest applications benefiting from spatial biology techniques and walks through several key considerations to help scientists select the method that’s most appropriate for their experimental needs.
Novel Method Converts Human Pluripotent Stem Cells to 8-Cell Embryo-Like Stage
Researchers have developed a rapid and controllable method to convert pluripotent stem cells into totipotent embryo-like cells, which could be used in future for regenerative medicine.
Bone Marrow Cancer Discovery Could Help To Identify Drug Targets
Researchers have discovered that patients with an uncommon type of bone marrow cancer called ASXL1-mutant chronic myelomonocytic leukemia have distinctive epigenetic changes that can activate specific genes and cause the cancer to grow more rapidly.
Exploiting the Interferon Response in COVID-19
An extensive multiomics dataset tracking COVID-19 pathology has been used to reveal that different interferons (IFNs) modulate diverse aspects of the immune response, clarifying why IFN suppression therapy works for some patients and not others.
What Role Do Bitter Taste Receptors Play in Cancer?
To determine the current state of knowledge on the role of bitter taste receptors in cancer, researchers analyzed extensive data gathered using PubMed and Google Scholar. Technology Networks recently had the pleasure of speaking with two of the study’s authors, Dr. Agnes Mistlberger-Reiner and Sofie Zehentner to learn more about their findings.
Driving Progress in Personalized Cancer Therapy
Personalized medicine has the potential to change the cancer patient's journey by predicting how they will respond to different treatments. Technology Networks spoke to Dr. Ofer Sharon, CEO of OncoHost, to find out more!
Technology Simultaneously Analyzes DNA, RNA and Chromatin in Cells
Salk Institute researchers have developed a new genomic technology to simultaneously analyze the DNA, RNA and chromatin—a combination of DNA and protein—from a single cell.
What’s My Age Again? Our Organs Have Different Biological “Clocks”
Age, scientists have found, may be more than just a number. Instead, it is at least nine different numbers. Scientists have identified that different organs or body systems age at different rates according to unique biological “clocks”.
A New Model for Aging Uses a "Wikipedia-Style" Approach to Science
Huge amounts of time and money have been devoted to finding treatments for diseases that become more common as we age, like cancer and Alzheimer’s. However, a growing number of scientists who view such diseases as symptoms of a bigger and more universal process: aging itself.
Pancreatic Cells Reprogram Themselves To Limit the Immune Response During T1D Development
Researchers have revealed that during the development of Type 1 Diabetes, the cells lining the pancreatic duct reprogram themselves in an attempt to suppress autoimmune T cell responses.
