What Can Be Done about Pseudoskepticism?

What do tobacco, food additives, chemical flame retardants and carbon emissions all have in common? The industries associated with them and their ill effects have been remarkably consistent and disturbingly effective at planting doubt in the mind of the public in the teeth of scientific evidence...

My experience with Foldscope, the paper microscope.

My experience with Foldscope, the paper microscope. See the images of insects, parasites, vegetal and animal tissues and cells, yeast, bacteria and (almost) virus (the cytopathic effect), with Foldscope, the paper microscope (text in Spanish). Read More

Experimental drug turns 'bad' white fat into 'good' brown-like fat

An experimental drug causes loss of weight and fat in mice, a new study has found. Known as GC-1, the drug reportedly speeds up metabolism, or burning off, of fat cells.

How Quickly Would Measles Spread if Too Few People Were Vaccinated?

What would actually happen if only 80 percent of school-age children were vaccinated against the measles? It’s a scary thought that a new simulation from the University of Pittsburgh aims to visualize.

Why China's Pollution Could Be Behind Our Cold, Snowy Winters

A video from NASA shows how air pollution moves around the world. So what happens when emissions from Asia blow across the Pacific Ocean to North America?

Engineering the Human Microbiome Shows Promise for Treating Disease

In the not too distant future each of us will be able to colonize our gut with genetically modified “smart” bacteria that detect and stamp out disease at the earliest possible moment. This scenario may sound like the premise for a sci-fi flick, but it is a very real possibility. Microbiome engin... Read More

Ebola survivors offer clues to body's virus defences

The human body can mobilize a strong defense against Ebola virus, suggests a study of four people with the virus who were treated in the United States last year.

A team led by immunologist Rafi Ahmed of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, found that the people treated at Emory between Augus... Read More

Protection Without a Vaccine

Last month, a team of scientists announced what could prove to be an enormous step forward in the fight against H.I.V.

Scientists at Scripps Research Institute said they had developed an artificial antibody that, once in the blood, grabbed hold of the virus and inactivated it. The molecule ca... Read More

Joint BioEnergy Institute Researchers Use Proteomics to Profile Switchgrass

If advanced biofuels are to replace gasoline, diesel and jet fuel on a gallon-for-gallon basis at competitive pricing, we’re going to need a new generation of fuel crops – plants designed specifically to serve as feedstocks for fuels.

Fuels made from the sugars in plants and other forms of bi... Read More

Bioelectrochemical processes have the potential to one day replace petrochemistry: Lysine production as example

Researchers have found that the electrification of the white biotechnology is not merely a green dream, but an alternative to petrochemistry with realistic economical potential. Compared to classical sugar based bio-processes, bioelectrochemical processes promise improved yields, which could tur... Read More

Radical Vaccine Design Effective Against Herpes Viruses

Herpes simplex virus infections are an enormous global health problem and there is currently no viable vaccine. For nearly three decades, immunologists’ efforts to develop a herpes vaccine have centered on exploiting a single protein found on the virus’s outer surface that is known to elicit rob... Read More

Sizing up cells: Study finds possible regulator of growth

Modern biology has attained deep knowledge of how cells work, but the mechanisms by which cellular structures assemble and grow to the right size largely remain a mystery. Now, researchers may have found the key in a dynamic agglomeration of molecules inside cells.

Link identified between virus recognition, destruction in bacterial immune system

An immune system that helps bacteria combat viruses is yielding unlikely results such as the ability to edit genome sequences and potentially correct mutations that cause human disease.

University of Georgia researchers Michael and Rebecca Terns were among the first to begin to study the bact... Read More

Energetic immune cells are vital for fighting disease

A good immune system relies on a key ‘energy producing’ protein in immune cells to develop immunity to vaccines and disease, an international team of scientists has found.

The protein, called HuR (human antigen R) is critical for controlling metabolism in B cells, which make antibodies that a... Read More

Modified E. coli spin fibres as tough as spider silk

Spider silk is stronger than steel and tougher than Kevlar, but efforts to spin our own have so far failed to match the real thing. Now a German research group has come up with artificial fibres that equal its toughness, which could lead to safer airbags.

His team spliced spider genes into E.... Read More
