Philanthropist and entrepreneur Paul G. Allen announced a commitment of $100 million to create the Allen Institute for Cell Science in Seattle. The Allen Institute for Cell Science will take a multidisciplinary, team science-driven approach to understanding a fundamental and yet elusive question in cell science.
The Cytation 5 Cell Imaging Multi-Mode Reader from BioTek is a second-generation imaging reader that adds functionality to both the automated digital microscopy and conventional multi-mode microplate detection modes, enhancing phenotypic cellular information and well-based quantitative data.
The NEXTflex 18S ITS Amplicon-Seq Kit from Bioo Scientific simplifies the preparation of multiplexed amplicon libraries spanning the hypervariable Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) region of eukaryotic 18S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes.
Scientists have for the first time identified a protein that plays a key role in regulating how blood stem cells replicate in humans. This discovery lays the groundwork for a better understanding of how this protein controls blood stem cell growth and regeneration.
Children with autism spectrum disorder were more than twice as likely to have been exposed in utero to preeclampsia, and the likelihood of an autism diagnosis was even greater if the mother experienced more severe disease, a large study has found.
Researchers have taken what they describe as “the first step toward a pill that can replace the treadmill” for the control of obesity, though that shift, of course, would not provide all of the many benefits of exercise.
Researchers have shown a non–surgical injection of programmable biomaterial that spontaneously assembles in vivo into a 3-D structure could fight and even help prevent cancer and also infectious disease such as HIV.
Scientists have discovered a mechanism in the brain that may drive our appetite for foods rich in glucose and could lead to treatments for obesity.
More women are learning their breasts are so dense that it's more difficult for mammograms to spot cancer. But new research suggests automatically giving them an extra test isn't necessarily the solution.
Sierra Leone's junior doctors were on strike for a second day Tuesday to demand better care for medical workers who catch Ebola after a spate of recent deaths.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech’s stainless steel fermenter/bioreactor the BIOSTAT Cplus is designed for the cultivation of microorganisms and cell cultures.
A new advance in biomedical research could have potential in the future to assist with tackling diseases and conditions associated with aging– as well as in treating cancer.
Scientists have discovered a new line of defense used by cancer cells to evade cell death, according to new research. The team identified a critical pathway of molecular signals which throw a lifeline to cancer cells.
Just as weather forecasting has improved over recent decades, the accuracy of forecasting influenza and other infectious diseases is expected to improve, according to research from a team that placed first in the CDC’s “Predict the Influenza Season Challenge.”
New research in robotics might help with stroke rehabilitation, guide wheelchairs, and assist children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Projects investigating co-robotics are the focus of new funding from the National Institutes of Health.
