Computing using DNA relies on information being encoded very concisely onto the base pair sequence joining strands, making DNA a focus of attention for very high-density molecular memories, however, the … Continue Reading Reprogrammable self-assembling DNA computer developed.
It is known that a 24-hour circadian rhythm controls nearly all brain and body processes, such as the sleep/wake cycle, metabolism, alertness and cognition. These daily activity patterns are regulated … Continue Reading Researchers map the circadian neurogenetics involved in brain aging.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) represents a diverse group of neurodevelopmental conditions. The clinical presentation and outcome vary substantially. The use of genome-wide tests to provide molecular diagnosis for individuals with … Continue Reading Study identifies children with Autism who benefit from genetic testing.
Another step forward has just been taken in the area of synthetic biology. Research teams from Inserm, CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research), Montpellier Regional University Hospital and Stanford … Continue Reading Intelligent bacteria, bactodetectors, have been programmed to successfully detect disease.
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have identified a new molecular pathway critical to aging, and confirmed that the process can be manipulated to help make old blood like … Continue Reading Researchers identify new mitochondrial pathway critical to aging.
For infants with severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), something as simple as a common cold or ear infection can be fatal. Born with an incomplete immune system, kids who have SCID, … Continue Reading Researchers grow and correct an SCID immune system in-a-dish via precision medicine.
During pregnancy, the mother supplies the fetus with nutrients and oxygen via the placenta. If placental development is impaired, this may lead to growth disorders of the embryo or to … Continue Reading Researchers discover a new signaling pathway in embryonic development.
Researchers at the National University of Singapore have comprehensively mapped the network of proteins involved in cell-cell adhesions, or the cadherin interactome. This work is published in Science Signaling. Many … Continue Reading Researchers comprehensively map cadherin interactome for the first time.
