I am a graduate student in a lab that studies the process of asymmetric cell division in the development of model organisms, such as the nematode Cae... Read More
Army scientists and industry collaborators have successfully protected laboratory animals from lethal hantavirus disease using a novel approach that combines DNA vaccines and duck eggs. The work appears in a recent edition of the online scientific journal PLoS ONE, published by the Public Librar... Read More
Bioengineers have developed a way to repeatedly encode, store, and erase digital data within the DNA of living cells.
“It took us three years and 750 tries to make it work, but we finally did it,” says Jerome Bonnet, a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford University, who worked with graduate stud... Read More
A team of researchers, including a scientist from the Viral Immunology Center at Georgia State University, have found that a type of herpesvirus infection of the eye is associated with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a disease that causes blindness in the elderly.

Antibodies that help to stop the HIV virus have been found in breast milk. Researchers at Duke University Medical Center isolated the antibodies from immune cells called B cells in the breast milk of infected mothers in Malawi, and showed that the B cells in breast milk can generate neutralizing...

When researchers conduct experiments on the way cells grow and respond to outside cues, they tend to use solutions that are much more dilute than the crowded environments found inside living cells. Now, new research from MIT shows that this dilute environment may skew the results of such experim... Read More
