Nanorobotics is the development of machines or robots whose components are on the scale of the nanometre. Theoretical discussions involving nanobots cover specific design issues such as sensing, power communication, … Continue Reading Electronic cell-sized nanobots can sense their environment, store data.
Synthetic biology involves the fabrication of previously non-existent biological components and systems, consisting of quickly manufactured DNA sequences assembled into new genomes. The main goal of synthetic biology is the … Continue Reading Synthetic tissues build and regenerate themselves.
Adding to their already thick armor, cancer cells are capable of ‘self-homing’ behavior where cells released into the circulation can return to the main tumor site. Therefore, much research has … Continue Reading Engineered cancer cells can track and destroy tumours.
The enteric nervous system (ENS) is known as the second brain, or the brain in the gut, due to the fact it can operate independently of the central nervous system … Continue Reading Study identifies previously unknown neuronal activity in the gut.
