redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online In what is being called "a breakthrough effort for computational biology," researchers from a pair of US universities have successfully completed a software model of an organism's entire lifespan. The research, which was led by Stanford University Assistant Professor of Bioengineering Markus Covert, used data obtained from over 900 previous scientific papers in order to account for every molecular interaction that occurs during...

Using new technology that allows scientists to monitor how individual cells react in the complex system of cell signaling, Stanford University researchers have uncovered a much larger spectrum of differences between each cell than ever seen before. Cells don't all act in a uniform fashion, as was previously thought. "Think of cells as musicians in a jazz band," said Markus Covert, PhD, assistant professor of bioengineering and senior author of the study, which will be published online in...
