Smarter catalysts through ‘induced activation’

New Lehigh University–East China University of Science & Technology research collaboration proposes novel method of molecular-level control to double the efficiency of widely used industrial catalysts. The science of catalysis—the…

World’s first molecular-level analysis of Omicron spike protein

Findings shed light on factors behind Omicron’s increased transmissibility, including strong antibody evasion and binding with human cells. Researchers at UBC’s faculty of medicine have conducted the world’s first molecular-level…

Scientists build ‘valves’ in DNA to shape biological information flows

Scientists at the University of Bristol have developed new biological parts that are able to shape the flow of cellular processes along DNA. The work, now published in the journal…

Contour map for genetic enhancers

How strongly does a genetic switch affect its gene? A Berlin research team created a registry of genetic enhancers, their location in the genome, and their activation strength in mouse…

Halting antibiotic resistance is a little less futile

Rice bioscientists’ microfluidic platform refines study of how infectious bacteria evolve. A new experimental platform developed at Rice University promises to speed up the discovery of how infectious bacteria become…

Scientists uncover ‘resistance gene’ in deadly E. coli

Scientists have pinpointed a gene that helps deadly E. coli bacteria evade antibiotics, potentially leading to better treatments for millions of people worldwide. The University of Queensland-led study found a…

Alternative to animal models

Advances in medicine through human-relevant disease models. Worldwide, there is growing belief that biomedical sciences can advance with less animal testing by replacing in-vivo experiments with in-vitro models based on…

Hostile takeover in the cell

Pathogens hijack host mitochondria. Mitochondria are known as energy suppliers for our cells, but they also play an important role in the defense against pathogens. They can initiate immune responses,…

It all comes down to the first electron

Every living thing requires energy. This is also true of microorganisms. This energy is frequently generated in the cells by respiration, that is by the combustion of organic compounds, in…

“Hand in hand in hand”: Three catalysts solve chemical problem

Research team develops new strategy to create molecular compounds without multi-step syntheses. For organic synthesis, i.e. for the production of carbon-based compounds, it is important to develop synthesis processes by…
