If we consider models as hypotheses about how the hydrology is working, then testing models as hypotheses is one way of doing science in the inexact sciences.
In the “golden age” of molecular microbiology, modern molecular tools enable researchers to understand freshwater microbial communities in unprecedented detail by identifying and enumerating them, as well as determining their activity in the environment.
Group I intron-based trans-splicing ribozyme specifically recognizes disease-specific RNA, removes the sequence downstream of the target site, and replaces it with a 3’-exon encoding a therapeutic/reporter RNA sequence, inducing therapeutic/reporter activity selectively in the target RNA-expressing cells.
The identification and understanding of the full range of RNA-binding proteins, with their variety of functions and mechanisms, will be a significant step towards disentangling the complexity of post-transcriptional and translational regulation.
All steps in the RNA life cycle are under circadian clock control.
Researchers are taking advantage of 4 billion years of viral evolution to produce robust protein cages for a wide range of applications in nanotechnology.
Nanocarriers can be precision-engineered to capitalize on what is known about receptor expression patterns, receptor clustering, and ultimately how interactions between a nanocarrier and target can be manipulated to achieve the most effective downstream signaling events.
The energy-increasing effect of lowering inequality is indeed a distraction.
There are several striking and problematic features of typical climate imagery from the perspective of engaging with wider audiences. Most notably, there is an absence of human stories – those that show ordinary and relatable humans engaging with the issue of climate change.
Modifications to chromatin are associated with the development of metabolic diseases, including Type 2 diabetes and obesity. There is evidence that these chromatin modifications can lead to long-term disease risk and increased disease risk for offspring.
