The ocean is full of drifting DNA. The United States needs to collect it, researchers say

1.2.2019   |   Press monitoring

U.S. government agencies monitoring fisheries, endangered species, and environmental impacts ought to leverage the DNA present in every drop of seawater, say the organizers of a conference on marine environmental DNA (eDNA), held at Rockefeller University in New York City in November 2018. Biological surveys based on eDNA are reliable and poised...

Pufferfish-inspired pill could keep a long-term eye on your gastric health

30.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

MIT researchers have developed an ingestible pill that swells up to the size of a ping-pong ball upon reaching the stomach, allowing it to remain in the body and take measurements from within – for weeks at a time. The pill's creators hope that it could be used for a multitude of purposes, from tracking stomach pH levels to observing the growth...

Genetically modified virus shown able to kill tumors in mice with retinoblastoma

28.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

An international team of researchers reports that modifying an adenovirus a certain way made it an effective tumor killer in mice with retinoblastoma. In their paper published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, the researchers describe modifying the virus and testing its effectiveness in treating retinoblastoma. Retinoblastoma, as its...

Not all poo is created equal: Scientists discover super donors for fecal transplants

25.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

A new study, led by researchers from the University of Auckland, has described the phenomenon of super donors, people who contribute stool samples for use in trials whose poop seems to be significantly more effective in leading to clinical improvements for fecal transplant subjects. Despite a long history of anecdotal use, the science behind...

CRISPR gene-edited monkeys cloned in China

23.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

New research out of China has confirmed the birth of five gene-edited monkey clones. Two recently published papers describe how a CRISPR-gene-edited long-tailed macaque has been successfully cloned, demonstrating the first time in the world a gene-edited monkey has been effectively cloned. The scientists first created a donor monkey using the...

Soil bacteria found to produce mosquito repelling chemical stronger than DEET

21.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

A trio of researchers at the University of Wisconsin has discovered that a common soil bacterium produces a chemical that is more effective in repelling mosquitoes than DEET. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, Mayur Kajla, Gregory Barrett-Wilt and Susan Paskewitz describe their search for the chemical made by the bacteria...

Why do Hydra end up with just a single head?

18.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

Often considered immortal, the freshwater Hydra can regenerate any part of its body, a trait discovered by the Geneva naturalist Abraham Trembley nearly 300 years ago. Any fragment of its body containing a few thousands cells can regenerate the entire animal The one-centimeter polyp has a developmental organizer center located at the head level,...

Cartilage could be key to safe structural batteries

14.1.2019   |   Press monitoring

Your knees and your smartphone battery have some surprisingly similar needs, a University of Michigan professor has discovered, and that new insight has led to a "structural battery" prototype that incorporates a cartilage-like material to make the batteries highly durable and easy to shape. The idea behind structural batteries is to store...
