    Lighting up proteins with Immuno-SABER

    To better understand how tissues and organs develop, fail to function, and regenerate over time, researchers would like to visualize their constituent cells' repertoires of molecules within 3-D space. Ambitious efforts like the "Human BioMolecular At…

  • Could biological clocks in plants set the time for crop spraying?

    Could biological clocks in plants set the time for crop spraying?

    Dr. Antony Dodd, Senior Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences and senior author of the paper, said: "This proof of concept research suggests that, in future, we might be able to refine the use of some chemicals that are used in agriculture by…

  • Discovery of a bottleneck relief in photosynthesis may have a major impact on food crops

    Discovery of a bottleneck relief in photosynthesis may have a major impact on food crops

    Scientists have found how to relieve a bottleneck in the process by which plants transform sunlight into food, which may lead to an increase in crop production. They discovered that producing more of a protein that controls the rate in which electron…

    Discovery could pave the way for disease-resistant rice crops

    Researchers have uncovered an unusual protein activity in rice that can be exploited to give crops an edge in the evolutionary arms race against rice blast disease, a major threat to rice production around the world.

    Controlled hydraulic fracturing sculpts mammalian embryos into shape

    Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a process most often associated with shale gas extraction, but a team of researchers from Institut Curie at the Sorbonne, and the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology at the College de France have con…

  • Sticky proteins help plants know when—and where—to grow

    Sticky proteins help plants know when—and where—to grow

    Depending on the temperature, a plant may synthesize the hormone auxin. Depending on the pathogens present, a plant may synthesize auxin. Depending on the available nutrients, water, stressors or development cues: auxin.

    Revolutionising the CRISPR method

    Everyone's talking about CRISPR-Cas. This biotechnological method offers a relatively quick and easy way to manipulate single genes in cells, meaning they can be precisely deleted, replaced or modified. Furthermore, in recent years, researchers have…

    Pinpointing the molecular mechanisms of ageing

    Although each and every one of us goes through it, ageing is a poorly understood process. Researchers have used a biomarker called the epigenetic clock to identify a gene that is closely linked to ageing in humans. The study, published in Genome Biol…
