New Technique Pinpoints Milestones in the Evolution of Bacteria

Feb. 7, 2019 — Scientists have devised a reliable way to determine when certain groups of bacteria appeared in the evolutionary record. The technique could be used to identify when significant changes occurred in ... read more

Feb. 7, 2019 — Biologists have discovered why cell sizes are so tightly regulated. Researchers found that the need to produce just the right amount of protein is behind the striking uniformity of ... read more

Feb. 7, 2019 — Functional B-1 cells derived from mouse embryonic stem cells are capable of long-term engraftment and secrete natural antibodies after transplantation in mice, researchers report. Scientists are ... read more

Feb. 7, 2019 — Researchers used the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans to optimize a new technique, leading to the development of the method called Nested CRISPR. This cloning-free method involves the insertion ... read more

Finding Chemicals Inside a Cell

Feb. 7, 2019 — How are chemicals distributed in a cell? Scientists have developed a combined mass spectrometry and biological imaging device that enables direct, label-free detection, and high-resolution mapping of ... read more

Feb. 7, 2019 — Comparative genome content analyses provide insight into the early evolution of animals. A novel method that permits the use of larger datasets in such studies yields results that are consistent with ... read more

Feb. 6, 2019 — Researchers have discovered a clue in the humble zebrafish's digestive tract that, one day, could help people on the autism spectrum alleviate one of the most common yet least studied symptoms ... read more

Feb. 5, 2019 — Researchers successfully used stem cells to grow mouse kidneys inside ... read more

New Anti-CRISPR Proteins Discovered in Soil and Human Gut

Feb. 5, 2019 — Scientists have found four new anti-CRISPR proteins that are distributed across different environments. The new study suggests that some anti-CRISPR proteins are more widespread in nature than ... read more

A Better Way to Measure Cell Survival

Feb. 5, 2019 — Biological engineers have devised a toxicity test that can measure chemical effects on cell survival with much greater sensitivity than the tests commonly used today. The MicroColonyChip could make ... read more

Feb. 5, 2019 — Streptomyces are soil-dwelling bacteria that produce approximately two-thirds of the antibiotics in current clinical ... read more

It's All in the Code: Protein Production Efficiency Can Be Predicted by Gene Sequence

Feb. 4, 2019 — Scientists explored mRNA and protein public databases to unravel hidden meanings of the genetic code. Using a metric derived from mRNA codon composition, they found out how gene sequence choice can ... read more

Insight Into Protein Formation Could Aid Understanding of Diseases

Feb. 4, 2019 — Research explains details of a biological process that supports the production of healthy cells, by removing faulty proteins as they ... read more

Feb. 1, 2019 — Researchers have discovered a new switch that plants use to control their responses to iron ... read more

Jan. 31, 2019 — A look at the brains of an endangered spiny rat off the coast of Japan could illuminate the subtle genetic influences that stimulate a mammal's cells to develop as male versus female in the ... read more

Jan. 30, 2019 — In a new study, researchers describe how, in a novel mouse model, epigenetic regulation negatively impacts a downstream gene specifically involved in neurodevelopment and associated ... read more

Measuring Stress Around Cells

Jan. 30, 2019 — Tissues and organs in the human body are shaped through forces generated by cells, that push and pull, to 'sculpt' biological structures. Thanks to a new tool, scientists will now be able ... read more

Jan. 30, 2019 — With their first ever RNA-based inducible system for switching on genes in the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans, two researchers have closed a significant gap in the research on and usage of genetic ... read more

Jan. 29, 2019 — Shellfish like oysters and mussels have the potential to revolutionize human health research, according to a new article. The study reveals how using bivalves as model organisms offers numerous ... read more

Jan. 29, 2019 — For the first time, scientists have read the whole genetic code of one single mosquito. Scientists worked to advance technology and lower the starting amount of DNA needed to just 'half a ... read more
