Findings a step toward engineering advanced medical treatments Knowing virtually everything about how the body’s cells make transitions from one state to another – for instance, precisely how particular cells develop into multi-cellular organisms – would be a major jump forward in understanding the basics of what drives biological processes. Such a leap could open doors to far-reaching advances in medical science, bioengineering and...

Cancer Research In Space: Microgravity Could Be The Key

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com – Your Universe Online The International Space Station (ISS) has been helping provide cancer biologists a laboratory 220 miles above the surface of the Earth. Although it may seem a little odd, NASA says the orbiting laboratory acts as a great place to study cancer, along with other diseases. Cells in the human body normally grow within support structures made up of proteins and carbohydrates in three-dimensional shape. In a laboratory setting, however,...

Biology’s Drive Toward Engineering

American Chemical Society Biology is on the verge of getting its versions of the lever, wheel and axle, pulley and other basic machines that enable engineers to build almost any mechanical device, a new analysis has concluded. The viewpoint article on availability of this new toolkit – for engineering biological factories that can produce new biofuels, crops and chemicals, among others – appears in the journal ACS Synthetic Biology. Kevin Munnelly, CEO of synthetic biology...

Update to synthetic biology map identifies new activity across the globe The number of private and public entities conducting research in synthetic biology worldwide grew significantly between 2009 and 2013, according to the latest version of an interactive map produced by the Synthetic Biology Project at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Synthetic biology, an area of research focused on the design and construction of new biological parts and devices, or the...

Cells are the basic unit of a living organism. The human body consists of a vast array of highly specialized cells, such as blood cells, skin cells and neurons. In total more than 250 different cell types exist. How are the different types related to each other? Which factors are unique for each cell type? And what in the end determines the development of a certain cell? To answer these questions, the research team designed a computer-based method that uses already existing biological data...

What effects will the rapidly growing field of synthetic biology have on the conservation of nature? The ecological and ethical challenges stemming from this question will require a new dialogue between members of the synthetic biology and biodiversity conservation communities, say Kent Redford of the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) and Archipelago Consulting; Bill Adams of the University of Cambridge; and Georgina Mace of University College London (UCL) in a new paper published 2 April...
