Apr. 25, 2017 — Researchers have developed methods to use data from FRAP, an experiment used to study how molecules move inside cells, in ways it's never been used ... read more

Apr. 24, 2017 — Traditional toxicological investigations performed on animals (in vivo) are expensive, time-consuming and may cause animal suffering. But new research demonstrates that a neuronal cell model, derived ... read more

Apr. 20, 2017 — Each cell of our body is the result of an orchestra of sophisticated mechanisms that control which genes are and are not expressed at any given time. Partly, this is possible thanks to the ... read more

Looping the Genome: How Cohesin Does the Trick

Apr. 20, 2017 — Twenty years ago, the protein complex cohesin was first described by researchers. They found that its shape strikingly corresponds to its function: when a cell divides, the ring-shaped structure of ... read more

Apr. 17, 2017 — Researchers have developed a way to make extremely high-resolution images of tissue samples, at a fraction of the cost of other techniques with similar resolution. Known as iterative expansion ... read more

New HIV Reservoir Discovered

Apr. 17, 2017 — Scientists have identified a new cell in the body where HIV persists despite treatment. This discovery has major implications for cure ... read more

Apr. 17, 2017 — Geneticists have developed an effective method for identifying the plant genes that produce the chemical ammunition plants use to protect themselves from predation and is a natural source of many ... read more

Apr. 13, 2017 — The bacterium that causes gonorrhea infects the female reproductive tract by breaking connections between cells in the tract's protective lining, according to new ... read more

Apr. 13, 2017 — There are many processes that take place in cells that are essential for life. Two of these, transcription and translation, allow the genetic information stored in DNA to be deciphered into the ... read more

Apr. 13, 2017 — By applying mathematical models to a large number of experiments in which bacterial growth is inhibited, a team of physicists, biologists and bioengineers has developed a 'general growth ... read more

Viewing Genes Inside Living Cells

Apr. 13, 2017 — 3-D maps of gene locations could have a huge impact in our understanding of human health and in the battle against ... read more

Apr. 13, 2017 — Researchers have discovered the primary mechanism driving the extrusion of dying cells from epithelial ... read more

Apr. 11, 2017 — Humans have a lot in common with the humble sea sponge, according to research that changes the way we think about animal evolution. A research team report that a collaborative study found sponges use ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — The sensory system in fish fins evolves in parallel to fin shape and mechanics, and is specifically tuned to work with the fish's swimming behavior, according to new research. The researchers ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — Scientists are combining their expertise to change stem cells for nerve ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — Researchers are piecing together the genetic mechanisms that link plant growth and stress response. In a new paper, the research group links autophagy, an important energy recycling function, with ... read more

Apr. 10, 2017 — One of the longest-running controversies in evolutionary biology has been, 'What was the oldest branch of the animal family tree?' Was it the sponges, as had long been thought, or was it ... read more

Tuberculosis: Researchers Uncover How Bacteria Burst Our Cells

Apr. 10, 2017 — Scientists unveil the complex molecular structure that causes lethal infections by Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb). Their findings might have implications for potential therapies against ... read more

Apr. 7, 2017 — Researchers have identified a transcriptional program that drives arbuscule degeneration during AM symbiosis. This regulation of arbuscule lifespan has likely contributed to the 400MY stability of ... read more

Apr. 6, 2017 — Octopus, squid, and cuttlefish are famous for engaging in complex behavior, from unlocking an aquarium tank and escaping to instantaneous skin camouflage to hide from predators. A new study suggests ... read more
