Flongle - for rapid DNA/RNA sequencing tests in any environmentVideo
Flongle is an adapter (flow cell dongle) for MinION or GridION that enables direct, real-time DNA or RNA sequencing on smaller, single-use flow cells. Providing access to sequence data as soon your experiment starts, Flongle is designed to be the quickest, most accessible and cost-efficient sequencing system for smaller tests and experiments.
One measurement - multiple resultsVideo
Measure standards first, then measure your unknowns? Sounds time-consuming. Especially when the new Agilent Cary 3500 UV-Vis lets you do both at the same time. And with the integrated multicell holder, you will never need to do an alignment again—perfect for microvolume cuvettes.
Don't sleep in the lab for your time-course experimentsVideo
Watch and find out why UCSF scientist Prof. Ernesto Diaz-Flores is confident in the results of his time-course experiments - all without staying in the lab to take time points every hour through the night.
How Do Coffee Producers Test for Mycotoxins to Meet Food Safety Regs? | Behind the Science S3 Ep7Video
In Behind the Science - On Location, Jen meets with Elise Palmer, a research scientist at VICAM to learn how coffee beans are monitored at different stages of the production process, from harvesting, to storage, to when they're roasted.
Cancer vaccines are a type of immunotherapy and can take two forms. Cancer prevention vaccines may be given to healthy people to help destroy certain viruses that could lead to cancer. Cancer treatment vaccines teach the immune system how to attack an existing cancer and keep it from coming back.Watch Now

Neil's TEDx Talk, A Plan to Weigh Every Protein in the Human Body: The Cell- Based Human Proteome Project presents a "big science" project with huge implications for how proteins in the human body are catalogued and used for drug therapies and treatments.Watch Now
NASA’s Human Research Program releases “Metabolomics: You Are What You Eat” video to highlight its Twins Study which uses omics to study Mark and Scott Kelly’s metabolites. Omics is an evolving field integrating collections of measurements, biomolecules and sub-disciplines to provide a more complete picture of health.Watch Now
Designer babies, the end of diseases, genetically modified humans that never age. Outrageous things that used to be science fiction are suddenly becoming reality. The only thing we know for sure is that things will change irreversibly.
Getting sufficient therapeutic drugs to the precise disease cell would reduce the amount of medication required; reduce side effects; and enhance treatment. Taylor Mabe explores the use of nano-particles for this purpose.Watch Now
Epigenetics is the science of what turns genes on and off. We know that mutations or damaged genes in our DNA can lead to cancer. Researchers are working on epigenetic drugs that conflict the on/off switches on our genes to change the instructions that cancer cells are following.Watch Now
Scientists at the Wyss Institute developed a method for growing kidney organoids under flow that enhances their vascularization and maturation, increasing their potential for drug testing and regenerative medicine.Watch Now
Gene-editing tools like CRISPR enable us to program life at its most fundamental level. But this raises some pressing questions: If we can generate new species from scratch, what should we build? Should we redesign humanity as we know it? Juan Enriquez forecasts the possible futures of genetic editing, exploring the immense uncertainty and opportunity of this next frontier.Watch Now
