Discover an alternative to laborious, turbulent, multi-step centrifugation for cell separation.
Versatile technology helps scientists streamline microbiology research.
Genetic studies have made it clear that eukaryotic horizontal gene transfer can and does happen. Exactly how, though, remains speculative.
A peptide found in bull ant venom closely resembles a hormone of its primary predator, triggering hypersensitivity and making subsequent bites even more painful than the ones that came before.
Scientists found that combining the notoriously flimsy anti-cancer protein p53 with a domain from a spider silk protein resulted in a more stable hybrid that’s more potent and easier for cells to synthesize.
Horizontally transferred genes play significant roles in eukaryotic genomes
Putting on a mask to protect oneself and others against disease is nothing new, nor is resistance to mask-wearing, but mask designs have changed considerably from their first iterations.
A study traces the effects of a mite outbreak from the earth to the heavens.
Too often, studies that aim to develop new treatments for patients fail to adequately cite and build upon research that preceded them.
DNA passed to and from all kinds of organisms, even across kingdoms, has helped shape the tree of life, to a large and undisputed degree in microbes and also unexpectedly in multicellular fungi, plants, and animals.
