Scientists have created artificial cells that mimic biological cells by responding to a chemical change in their surroundings.
Researchers shed light on the important role that microbial genes, like those from viruses, can play in insect and animal evolution.
Researchers have found a gene that gives Salmonella resistance to antibiotics of last resort in a sample taken from a human patient in the US The find is the first evidence that the gene mcr-3.1 has made its way into the US from Asia.
Conventional CRISPR–Cas systems maintain genomic integrity by leveraging guide RNAs for the nuclease-dependent degradation of mobile genetic elements, including plasmids and viruses.
A new study using mouse neural crest tissue reveals how primitive, undifferentiated cells choose their adult fate. The findings help explain how some neural crest cells become craniofacial cells, while others end up as nervous system cells. The research can help pinpoint where cells may ‘take the wrong turn’ and become malignant.
Researchers within the Dirk Linke group in the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo, are proposing a new method to fight the bacterium Yersinia enterocolitica, which causes severe diarrhea in an estimated 10 million children each year—mainly in the world’s poorest countries.
Prostate cancer contains nerve cells that are linked to disease progression, but their source was unknown. A mouse study reveals that cells from the brain invade prostate tumours and give rise to this nerve-cell population.
Researchers have pinpointed a key reason why people are more likely to get sick and even die from flu during winter months: low humidity.
Pandorum Technologies Pvt. Ltd., a tissue engineering and regenerative medicine startup company, announced the development of bio-engineered cornea tissue that can promote scarless healing of corneal wounds through bio-inspired regenerative approach.
