Researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Centre (MSKCC) in the USA have uncovered the structure of a network of proteins that help regulate the life cycle of cells. Understanding the networkâ€™s physical layout is an important step toward learning its function, and in finding ways to correct flaws in the system that could lead to cancer.
A new treatment for the age-old scourge of cholera and perhaps a whole new type of antibiotic medicine may emerge from chemicals discovered in an Australian seaweed, new research results suggest.
When scientists finished sequencing the genomes of seven species of fruit fly last year, little did they know that they had also sequenced the genes of several bacteria that dwell undetected inside fruit fly embryos.
BioSprint 15 and BioSprint 96 workstations and kits provide rapid and cost-efficient automated sample preparation - whatever the throughput needs. BioSprint 15 can process 1 to 15 samples or up to 96 samples can be processed with the BioSprint 96.
As with any emerging science there is some controversy regarding nomenclature, but the newly formed Metabolomics Society seems to be adhering to a convention consistent with the other '-omic' sciences
As the next phase of DTIâ€™s Measurements for Biotechnology (MfB) program to 2007 gets underway, a large DNA microarray dataset generated by an LGC-led consortium during the first phase is now freely available online at ArrayExpress, a public repository managed by the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI).
The victory of biotechnology giant Monsanto over Canadian farmer Mr Percy Schmeiser in the Supreme Court of Canada has sent a powerful message to Australian farmers - not just about GM crops, but about all plant technologies, according to ANU law expert Dr Matthew Rimmer.
Oxford geneticists have closed in on the genetic basis for risk factors of metabolic diseases such as hypertension, obesity and diabetes.
