BIOBOTS y Algoritmos Evolutivos
30/01/2020 - Los BIOBOTS se han convertido en el descubrimiento más hablado en las últimas semanas, pero... ¿Sabías que se han generado con algoritmos de Inteligencia Artificial?...
El tiempo de las bioempresas: “Los científicos también pueden emprender y crear algo con valor para la humanidad”
24/01/2020 - Lo afirma el estadounidense Arvind Gupta, graduado en ingeniería genética y en diseño. Con la aceleradora que fundó, ayudó a crear 112 empresas que desarrollan servicios y productos para la...
Domesticated wheat has complex parentage
24/01/2020 - Certain types of domesticated wheat have complicated origins, with genetic contributions from wild and cultivated wheat populations on opposite sides of the Fertile Crescent.
Scientists identify gene that puts brakes on tissue growth
24/01/2020 - The planarian flatworm is a simple animal with a mighty ability: it can regenerate itself from nearly every imaginable injury, including decapitation. Scientists have studied these worms for decades...
Opening up DNA to delete disease
20/01/2020 - Protein editorial assistants are clearing the way for cut-and-paste DNA editors, like CRISPR, to access previously inaccessible genes of interest. Opening up these areas of the genetic code is...
Analyzing DNA in soil could be an effective way of tracking animals
20/01/2020 - Genetic material left behind by animals can provide critical clues to aid conservation and research. New research shows studying DNA in soil samples can be more effective, efficient and affordable...
Newly discovered genetic element adjusts coat color in dogs
20/01/2020 - Why are Irish Setters so red while other breeds can come in different hues? Geneticists now have an answer for why some dogs have more intense coat colors than others.
Jumping genes threaten egg cell quality
20/01/2020 - A woman's supply of eggs is finite, so it is crucial that the quality of their genetic material is ensured. New work elucidates a mechanism by which, even before birth, the body tries to...
America's most widely consumed oil causes genetic changes in the brain
20/01/2020 - New research shows soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes, but could also affect neurological conditions like autism, Alzheimer's disease, anxiety, and depression.
Scientists improve yield predictions based on seedling data
15/01/2020 - A doctor diagnosing a 50-year-old patient based on a blood test taken during the patient's infancy would be unthinkable. Anecdotally speaking, however, that's what scientists have done with...
'Bilingual' molecule connects two basic codes for life
15/01/2020 - The nucleic acids of DNA encode genetic information, while the amino acids of proteins contain the code to turn that information into structures and functions. Together, they provide the two...
Dynamic interplay between genome and environment in pearl oysters
15/01/2020 - Researchers have, using genome-wide genetic data from specimens collected across the western Pacific, elucidated how pearl oyster populations vary genetically and geographically.
Saccharin derivatives give cancer cells a not-so-sweet surprise
09/01/2020 - Saccharin received a bad rap after studies in the 1970s linked consumption of large amounts of the artificial sweetener to bladder cancer in laboratory rats. Later, research revealed that these...
Mutations linked to familial pancreatic cancer
09/01/2020 - A new study finds genetic mutations associated with hereditary forms of pancreatic cancer and mechanism by which these mutations may contribute to the development of tumors.
How common genetic mutation drives cancer
09/01/2020 - A new, multicenter study has determined how a single mutation in splicing factor 3b subunit 1 (SF3B1), the most frequently mutated splicing factor gene, drives the formation of many cancers.
Brain tumor organoids may be key to time-sensitive treatments for glioblastomas
09/01/2020 - Lab-grown brain organoids developed from a patient's own glioblastoma, the most aggressive and common form of brain cancer, may hold the answers on how to best treat it. A new study showed how...
Cheers! Maxwell's electromagnetism extended to smaller scales
09/01/2020 - More than one hundred and fifty years have passed since the publication of James Clerk Maxwell's "A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" (1865). What would our lives be...
Large scale integrated circuits produced in printing press
09/01/2020 - Researchers have shown for the first time that it is possible to print complete integrated circuits with more than 100 organic electrochemical transistors.
Novel Direct Thermal Charging Cell Converts low-grade waste heat to usable electricity
09/01/2020 - Engineers can now efficiently convert heat into electricity, creating a huge potential to reduce greenhouse effects by capturing exhaust heat and cutting down primary energy wastage.
