Researchers have developed a new informatics technology that analyzes existing data repositories of protein modifications and 3D protein structures to help scientists identify and target research on "hotspots" most likely to be important for biological function.
A new study identifies new immune molecules that protect against deadly Marburg virus, a relative of Ebola virus.
A new study suggests that errors on memory and thinking tests may signal Alzheimer’s up to 18 years before the disease can be diagnosed.
High levels of DNA damage in nerve cells can lead to dementia, researchers have found.
An implantable, microchip-based device may soon replace the injections and pills now needed to treat chronic diseases.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans with Alzheimer's disease are women, and now some scientists are questioning the long-held assumption that it's just because they tend to live longer than men.
Welcome to Bioscience Technology’s new series Bioscience Bulletin, where we bring you the five most popular headlines from the week.
A new test can accurately diagnose the Ebola virus disease within minutes at the point of care, providing clinicians with crucial, on-the-spot information for treating patients and containing outbreaks.
Trametinib inhibits the same signal pathway in flies and humans and could thus conceivably also extend life expectancy in humans.
Researchers have now managed to grow the types of neurons affected by Parkinson's starting from neuronal stem cells in a three-dimensional cell culture system.
A bizarre-looking fossil worm that's been a puzzle for scientists has given up a secret: Researchers now know which end is which.
Restoring the low levels of the chemical serotonin may help improve brain function and reduce impulsivity in some dementia patients, according to researchers.
An international team of scientists has uncovered key structural differences in the brains of parrots that may explain the birds' unparalleled ability to imitate sounds and human speech.
Researchers have engineered particles, known as “phagemids,” capable of producing toxins that are deadly to targeted bacteria.
Researchers have found that a naturally occurring modified DNA base appears to be stably incorporated in the DNA of many mammalian tissues, possibly representing an expansion of the functional DNA alphabet.
