Microbes could help reduce the need for chemical fertilizers

22.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

Bacteria that can convert nitrogen gas to ammonia could not only provide nutrients that plants need, but also help regenerate soil and protect plants from pests. However, these bacteria are sensitive to heat and humidity, so it's difficult to scale up their manufacture and ship them to farms. To overcome that obstacle, MIT chemical engineers...

Using dust to bust crime scene DNA forensics

20.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

An airborne fraction of soil, or dust, contains biological and chemical "signatures" that act as a fingerprint to a specific location. Australian forensic science experts, led by Flinders University, have highlighted the usefulness of the latest technology by testing a series of field sites in South Australia for their unique chemical and...

Scientists 3D-print hair follicles in lab-grown skin

17.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

A team led by scientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has 3D-printed hair follicles in human skin tissue cultured in the lab. This marks the first time researchers have used the technology to generate hair follicles, which play an important role in skin healing and function. The research, published in the journal Science Advances, has...

Researchers develop light-activated protein superglue for fast and precise control of cells and tissues

13.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

Researchers at Tampere University have been involved in an international study to develop new tools for the light-activated control of cells. These tools are especially welcome for understanding processes where a fast initial signal leads to long-term changes in cell or tissue function. The modular Lego brick-like structure makes the tools widely...

Bacteria-virus arms race provides rare window into rapid and complex evolution

10.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

Rather than the evocative plants and animals of the Galapagos Islands that Darwin studied in forming his theory of evolution, Postdoctoral Scholar Joshua Borin and Associate Professor Justin Meyer of UC San Diego's School of Biological Sciences are documenting rapid evolutionary processes in simple laboratory flasks. Borin and Meyer set bacteria...

Bacteria-filled living dressing could help heal chronic wounds

8.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

Ordinarily, when treating chronic wounds, caregivers go to great lengths to keep them free of bacteria. An experimental new dressing, however, actually introduces bacteria to help such wounds heal. When a diabetic skin ulcer or other chronic wound becomes infected, colonies of the problematic bacteria within it form a layer of mucus known as a...

Mouse embryos grown in space for first time: Japan researchers

6.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

Mouse embryos have been grown on the International Space Station and developed normally in the first study indicating it could be possible for humans to reproduce in space, a group of Japanese scientists said. The researchers, including Teruhiko Wakayama, professor of University of Yamanashi's Advanced Biotechnology Centre, and a team from the...

Thousands of Fanzor DNA cutters that may outperform CRISPR identified

3.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

Following on from the discovery of programmable DNA-cutting enzymes known as Fanzors, scientists have found that a diverse range of species possess these genetic 'scissors', which presents a massive opportunity in the development of new medicines, genetic therapies and biotechnology. Scientists from the McGovern Institute for Brain Research at...

Spanish researchers open first biobank for living human brain samples

1.11.2023   |   Press monitoring

Research into brain cancers and testing drugs for the treatment of them usually involves the use of experimental models, including mice. It’s not until a major discovery is made that the search for patient samples begins, and then begins the process of confirming the discovery in humans. Finding the necessary number of human samples can be...
