Black swan genome could be our secret weapon to combat next pandemic

31.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

Scientists have mapped the genome of the black swan in an effort to understand immune responses to the deadly 'bird flu' virus and better protect public health. The University of Queensland team, led by Dr. Kirsty Short and Ph.D. candidate Mr Anjana Karawita, sequenced the genome of black swans, a species particularly susceptible to Highly...

Lego-inspired bioscaffolding could better heal broken bones

29.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

Typically made of biocompatible polymers, so-called bioscaffolding is usually either 3D-printed in one solid piece, or injected in the form of a gel that sets into a solid. In either case, once it's in place within a bone injury site, the adjacent bone cells migrate into the scaffolding, essentially "roosting" within its three-dimensional...

Phage therapy shows potential for treating prosthetic joint infections

27.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

Bacteriophages, or phages, may play a significant role in treating complex bacterial infections in prosthetic joints, according to new Mayo Clinic research. The findings suggest phage therapy could provide a potential treatment for managing such infections, including those involving antibiotic-resistant microbes. "The treatment for chronic...

Meet Cosmo, a Bull Calf Designed to Produce 75% Male Offspring

24.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

Scientists at the University of California, Davis, have successfully produced a bull calf, named Cosmo, who was genome-edited as an embryo so that he’ll produce more male offspring. Using the genome-editing technology CRISPR, researchers can make targeted cuts to the genome or insert useful genes, which is called a gene knock-in. In this case,...

Worlds smallest imaging device can 3D-scan inside your blood vessels

22.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

An Australian/German team has developed the world's smallest imaging device, at the thickness of a human hair. It's capable of traveling down the blood vessels of mice, offering unprecedented abilities to 3D-scan the body at microscopic resolutions. To build this miniature endoscope, the team took a fine optical fiber with a diameter of less...

Duckweed is an incredible, radiation-fighting astronaut food – and by changing how it is grown, we made it better

20.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

Duckweed is a small floating plant that grows on the surface of ponds. It is commonly eaten in Asia but is mostly considered a pest plant in the U.S. as it can quickly take over ponds. But duckweed is a remarkable plant. It is one of the fastest-growing plants on Earth, is the most protein–dense plant on the planet and also produces an abundance...

Test reveals radiation sickness in hours via a single drop of blood

17.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

Radiation sickness or acute radiation syndrome (ARS), like that experienced by the workers at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in 1986 or the residents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945, can cause a rapid deterioration of a person’s health, and often death. his sickness occurs when most or all of the body is subjected to a large but short-lived...

New bioink for cell bioprinting in 3-D

15.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

A research group led by Daniel Aili, associate professor at Linköping University, has developed a bioink to print tissue-mimicking material in 3-D printers. The scientists have developed a method and a material that allow cells to survive and thrive. "Bioprinting is a new and exciting technology to manufacture three-dimensional tissue-mimicking...

A micro-lab on a chip detects blood type within minutes

13.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

Blood transfusion, if performed promptly, is a potentially life-saving intervention for someone losing a lot of blood. However, blood comes in several types, some of which are incompatible with others. Transfusing an incompatible blood type can severely harm a patient. It is, therefore, critical for medical staff to know a patient's blood type...

New CRISPR enzyme mutation proves almost 100 times more precise

10.7.2020   |   Press monitoring

The CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing system is an extremely powerful tool, but there are still a few kinks to iron out. One of the main problems is off-target edits, which can have serious consequences. Now, researchers have found a particular mutation of the CRISPR enzyme that’s almost 100 times more precise than the most commonly used one. So the new...
