A new microscopy method could enable scientists to generate snapshots of dozens of different biomolecules at once in a single human cell, a team from the Wyss Institute of Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University reported Sunday in Nature Methods.
Often viewed as an apparently infertile blend of various minerals, clay might have actually been the birthplace of life on Earth, say Cornell researchers.
The traditional way of making medicines from ingredients mixed together in a factory may be joined by a new approach in which doctors administer the ingredients for a medicine separately to patients, and the ingredients combine to produce the medicine inside patients' bodies.
Volcanic-hydrothermal flow channels offer a chemically unique environment, which at first glance appears hostile to life.
Scientists at Harvard University have harnessed the prowess of fast-replicating bacterial viruses, also known as phages, to accelerate the evolution of biomolecules in the laboratory.
Biomolecules are medicine's jacks-of-all-trades: They are suitable for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer diseases; they are used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis and asthma; they help stimulate the build-up of the body's own immune defenses with flu and polio inoculations.
Physicists, chemists and engineers at the University of Pennsylvania have demonstrated a novel method for the controlled formation of patchy particles, using charged, self-assembling molecules that may one day serve as drug-delivery vehicles to combat disease and perhaps be used in small batteries that store and release charge.
For the first time researchers have successfully pushed nature beyond its limits by genetically modifying Escherichia coli to produce unusually long-chain alcohols essential in the creation of biofuels.
An important discovery has been made with respect to the mystery of â€œhandednessâ€ in biomolecules.
