Raman spectroscopy is an emerging microbiologic diagnostic tool and can be used as an intrapartum screening test for Streptococcus bacteria.
Why mitochondria produce reactive oxygen species, and how they drove eukaryotic evolution.
Fat is stored in adipocytes in the adipose tissue. In addition, the tissue contains other cell types including fibroblasts, vascular endothelial cells, immune cells and preadipocytes.
In their review in BioEssays, Bailey et al. present a model of a process that occurs more often than we’d suspect: identical genetic changes in evolutionarily unrelated populations.
Scientists have established comprehensive maps of the human epigenome, shedding light on how the body regulates which genes are active in which cells.
A team from the University of Ottawa, Canada have automatically fabricated 2-nm solid-state nanopores with high yield.
Researchers have created a new type of molecular motor made of DNA and used it it to transport a nanoparticle along the length of a carbon nanotube.
Researchers develop a new, more stable method for synthesising nanoparticle lattices using DNA.
Ring-shaped arrays of DNA by using a simple self-assembly process driven by a balance of different forces, by scientists in the USA and S. Korea.
Edge-hydrogenation of carbon electrodes could further the quest for solid-state, single-molecule DNA sequencing.
Tetrahedral constructs of DNA are a new way to support proteins on functional nanostructures, according to work by U.S. scientists.
Nuclease activity can be detected by a simple, sensitive, and selective test based on light scattering of carbon nanotubes, with no need for a label.
