Apr. 27, 2017 — A method to rapidly trigger the universal tagging of proteins being produced by a cell has now been discovered by researchers. The tagging can be turned on like a switch, which enables researchers to ... read more

Discovery of a New Regulatory Protein Provides New Tool for Stem Cell Engineering

Mar. 28, 2017 — Bioengineers have discovered a protein that regulates the switch of embryonic stem cells from the least developed 'naïve' state to the more developed 'primed' state. This ... read more

Mar. 16, 2017 — Plants possess molecular mechanisms that prevent them from blooming in winter. Once the cold of winter has passed, they are deactivated. However, if it is still too cold in spring, plants adapt their ... read more

A New Tool for Genetically Engineering the Oldest Branch of Life

Mar. 8, 2017 — A new study has documented the use of CRISPR-Cas9 mediated genome editing in the third domain of life, Archaea, for the first time. Their groundbreaking work has the potential to vastly accelerate ... read more

Nature Can Beat Back Scientific Tinkering With Genes of Entire Species

Mar. 1, 2017 — Scientists have revealed daunting challenges to changing the DNA of entire populations of species via the most promising techniques available today to produce 'gene ... read more

Feb. 17, 2017 — Biomedical engineers have developed imaging technology that is the first to see DNA 'blink,' or fluoresce. The tool enables researchers to study individual biomolecules (DNA, chromatin, ... read more

Modifying Fat Content in Soybean Oil With the Molecular Scissors Cpf1

Feb. 16, 2017 — Successful inactivation of two genes in soybean using ... read more

Feb. 9, 2017 — The bacterial world is rife with unusual talents, among them a knack for producing electricity. In the wild, 'electrogenic' bacteria generate current as part of their metabolism, and now ... read more

Genetically Modified Insects Could Disrupt International Food Trade

Feb. 1, 2017 — Genetically modified organisms for pest control could end up as contaminants in agricultural products throughout the ... read more

Researchers Explore Essential Cell Behavior With Crystal Sensor

Jan. 31, 2017 — A team of scientists has developed a new tool to monitor under a microscope how cells attach to an adjacent substrate. Studying adhesion events can help researchers understand how tissues grow, how ... read more

Jan. 23, 2017 — Scientists have announced the development of the first stable semisynthetic ... read more

Jan. 20, 2017 — A new technique will help biologists tinker with genes, whether the goal is to turn cells into tiny factories churning out medicines, modify crops to grow with limited water or study the effects of a ... read more

Pig Gene Advance Could Boost Sperm Stocks from Prized Animals

Jan. 13, 2017 — Gene-editing techniques could help to improve stocks of farmed pigs by boosting supplies of sperm from prized sires. Scientists have created male pigs that could be used as surrogates capable of ... read more

Jan. 11, 2017 — Scientists have performed the first all-atom molecular dynamics simulations of Cas9-catalyzed DNA cleavage in action. The simulations shed light on the process of Cas9 genome editing and helped ... read more

For Viral Predators of Bacteria, Sensitivity Can Be Contagious

Jan. 10, 2017 — Scientists have shown for the first time how bacteria with resistance to a viral predator can become susceptible to it after spending time in the company of other susceptible or 'sensitive' ... read more

Jan. 4, 2017 — Researchers have identified a mutation that prompts bacterial cells to acquire genetic memories 100 times more frequently than they do naturally. This discovery provides a powerful research tool and ... read more

Dec. 23, 2016 — A cellular gatekeeper for water molecules finds new use in magnetic resonance imaging, a new report ... read more

An Anti-CRISPR for Gene Editing

Dec. 8, 2016 — Researchers have discovered a way to program cells to inhibit CRISPR-Cas9 activity. 'Anti-CRISPR' proteins had previously been isolated from viruses that infect bacteria, but now scientists ... read more

Dec. 7, 2016 — As a plant extends its roots into the soil, the cells that form at their tips assume different roles, from transporting water to sensing gravity. A study points to one way by which these newly-formed ... read more

Dec. 5, 2016 — Plant biologists have developed a genome editing method to knockout target genes in a model plant with high efficiency. The team reports a new CRISPR/Cas9 vector for the model plant that can strongly ... read more
