A master regulator controlling fungal infection of wheat

The fungus Zymoseptoria tritici causes Septoria tritici blotch, the most destructive fungal disease of wheat grown in temperate climates worldwide. This disease reduces wheat yields by 5-10% per year, causing…

Solving stability problems of relevant graphene derivatives

An international team involving chemists, physicists and materials scientists implements protection/deprotection strategies for the on-surface synthesis of technologically prominent graphene nanostructures. In the last decades, a new synthetic approach has…

Coral genome reveals cysteine surprise

Model animals, such as mice and fruit flies, have provided scientists with powerful insights into how cellular biology works. However, model animals are really just a guide, and it can…

DNA nets capture COVID-19 virus in low-cost rapid-testing platform

Tiny nets woven from DNA strands can ensnare the spike protein of the virus that causes COVID-19, lighting up the virus for a fast-yet-sensitive diagnostic test – and also impeding…

Monkeypox outbreak highlights need for One Health approach

… to prevent future zoonotic diseases. The current global outbreak of monkeypox is yet another warning for the adoption of a preventative, One Health, approach to minimise the risk of…

Killer cells get better with age

The human immune system is a thing of wonder. Up until now it had been widely assumed that the ability of killer T cells to destroy tumour cells and pathogens…
