Innovators and graduate students will have a chance to showcase their work, and be immersed in the work of other innovators at Automate 2015 this week.
By examining more than 3,600 postmortem brains, researchers at Mayo Clinic's campuses in Jacksonville, Florida, and Rochester, Minnesota, have found that the progression of dysfunctional tau protein drives the cognitive decline and memory loss seen in Alzheimer's disease.
On an East African hill somewhere in “Afar,” a stone’s throw from “Awash,” two sections of a large detached jawbone grinned brokenly at Ethiopian Arizona State University (ASU) graduate student Chalachew Seyoum. The pieces were just lying there, so the student picked them up and brought them together. They fit “perfectly,” he said.
The biotech firm is making a big bet on precision medicine.
The new Motum TS Spray System provides a compact, easy-to-use benchtop device for spraying coatings onto substrates of any type. The system can be placed in a laboratory fume hood or provided with a custom enclosure. A standard heated/cooled base plate allows for temperature control of substrates between +4°C and 150°C.
ViroStat has released a new set of monoclonal antibodies to the P1 adhesin of M. pneumoniae.
Zaber's motorized M-LSM micromanipulator series of products offer an adjustable probe holder, 25 mm travel XYZ with resolution finer than 0.05 µm, and up to 14 mm/s speed and 15 N thrust. These devices are standalone units that can be controlled by joystick or computer, and mounted to either metric or imperial optical breadboards, and oriented to the left or to the right. The probe hold...
Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc. launched the QX200 Droplet Digital PCR (ddPCR) system, the second generation of the company's ddPCR technology. The system is the only digital PCR system that works with EvaGreen and TaqMan hydrolysis probes (reagents that are used with the instrument) to provide users more flexibility in the design of their digital PCR experiments.
Kansas farmers are paying for genetic research to figure out exactly why some people struggle to digest wheat.
Study finds vaccination rate far below what's needed to keep virus in check.
Researchers at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania describe the first set of genes important in learning in a zebrafish model in the journal Neuron this week.
3-D printing could make a huge impact on digital dentistry, manufacturing, organ transplants, and multiple other fields.
Use of potentially risky, non-FDA approved hormone therapies may soon be as common as use of FDA-approved hormone therapies, according to a study by University of Virginia gynecology researcher JoAnn Pinkerton.
Charles Darwin’s kids doodled all over several pages of - and notes for - the original manuscript of his historic 1859 book, which launched the field of evolutionary biology: “On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.”
New research from Rockefeller University identifies a molecular cascade known as the contact system, which may provide opportunities for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease through simple blood tests.
