Advances in genetic sequencing are uncovering emerging diseases in wildlife that other diagnostic tests can’t detect.
A team of scientists has uncovered greater intricacy in protein signaling than was previously understood, shedding new light on the nature of genetic production.
Researchers have created a new technique that greatly enhances digital microscopy images. The development is significant because digital imagery has led to many advances in microscopy, but digital microscopic imaging can sometimes result in blurry, pixilated images.
Researchers have found that boys and girls with sensory processing disorder (SPD) have altered pathways for brain connectivity when compared to typically developing children, and the difference predicts challenges with auditory and tactile processing.
Engineers have devised a way to manipulate cells in three dimensions using sound waves. These “acoustic tweezers” could make possible 3-D printing of cell structures for tissue engineering and other applications, the researchers say.
Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., a life science research and clinical diagnostic products manufacturer has joined IBM Research and Mars Inc. in the Consortium for Sequencing the Food Supply Chain. The consortium is harnessing the power of genomics and informatics to study microbiomes in food to help prevent contamination and foodborne illness at any step in the food supply chain.
IntelliCyt, a leading provider of integrated platforms that accelerate drug discovery, antibody screening and immuno-oncology research, introduces the iQue Screener PLUS to the screening market at the 2016 meeting of the Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS2016) in San Diego this week.
A new study suggests mechanically-driven therapies that promote skeletal muscle regeneration through direct physical stimulation could one day replace or enhance drug and cell-based regenerative treatments.
You wouldn't think that two Turkish children, some yeast and a bunch of Hungarian fruit flies could teach scientists much. But in fact, that unlikely combination has just helped an international team make a key discovery about how the brain's "garbage disposal" process works -- and how little needs to go wrong in order for it to break down.
In a move that slashes 90 percent of the cost of mass-producing metastatic microtumors and therapeutic microtissues for screening and research, bioengineers have adapted techniques from the "maker" movement to reprogram a commercial laser cutter to etch up to 50,000 tiny "microwells" per hour into sheets of silicone.
Welcome to Pipette Tip of the Week, where each week during the month of January we will bring you one or two pipetting tricks to help your technique in the lab.
Contrary to current clinical belief, regular caffeine consumption does not lead to extra heartbeats, which, while common, can lead in rare cases to heart-or stroke-related morbidity and mortality, according to researchers.
Scientists behind a "Doomsday Clock" that measures the likelihood of a global cataclysm are set to announce Tuesday whether civilization is any closer or farther from disaster.
A new advance may offer a way to fulfill the promise of islet cell transplantation. The researchers have designed a material that can be used to encapsulate human islet cells before transplanting them. In tests on mice, they showed that these encapsulated human cells could cure diabetes for up to six months, without provoking an immune response.
Chromatrap, a business unit of Porvair Sciences, announces a new patented protocol that is able to simply, quickly and efficiently enrich transcription factors from Native Chromatin.
