Multiple cells, multiple temperatures - simultaneouslyVideo
Set temperature, equilibrate, measure, repeat? You can try it that way—or you could just do four temperatures at once. The new Agilent Cary 3500 UV-Vis lets you compress lengthy kinetics experiments into manageable time frames by measuring your samples at different temperatures simultaneously.
Professor Uta Frith, University College London, outlines how research itself and the public perception of autism has evolved over the years. Uta also highlights some promising changes and initiatives set to improve the credibility of biomedical research.

Meet the biohacker who wants to teach everyone how to edit genes.
Josiah Zayner is a biohacker who thinks everyone should be able to change their DNA with biotechnology called CRISPR. That’s why he founded a company called The ODIN, which sells do-it-yourself biotech kits that teach people how to genetically modify bacteria and frogs. It's DIY gene therapy.
His company has sold tens of thousands of experiments using CRISPR, an inexpensive and precise gene-editing technology that has revolutionized the field.
