Take a swab of saliva from your mouth and within minutes your DNA could be ready for analysis and genome sequencing with the help of a new device. The device will give hospitals and research labs a much easier way to separate DNA from human fluid samples, which will help with genome sequencing, disease diagnosis and forensic investigations. This technology aims to clear those hurdles. The small, box-shaped kit now is ready for manufacturing, then eventual distribution to hospitals and clinics.
The UW, led by Chung, spearheaded the research and invention of the technology, and still manages the intellectual property. Conventional methods use a centrifuge to spin and separate DNA molecules or strain them from a fluid sample with a micro-filter, but these processes take 20 to 30 minutes to complete and can require excessive toxic chemicals. UW engineers designed microscopic probes that dip into a fluid sample — saliva, sputum or blood — and apply an electric field within the liquid.
That draws particles to concentrate around the surface of the tiny probe. Larger particles hit the tip and swerve away, but DNA-sized molecules stick to the probe and are trapped on the surface. It takes two or three minutes to separate and purify DNA using this technology. From deadly nightshade to eye surgery and truth drugs; from poison gas to pesticides and cancer therapy; from explosives to treatments for heart disease; from natural toxins to new starting points for drug discovery.
The unexpected relationship between chemical weapons and medicines will be explored, interspersed with curious parallels drawn from the speaker’s 20 years of being a chemist. Oxford University Scientific Society website: En la actualidad quien no sabe es quien no quiere aprender Applying a maxim from computer science to biology raises the intriguing possibility that life existed before Earth did.
An extrapolation of the genetic complexity of organisms to earlier times suggests that life began before the Earth was formed. Life may have started from systems albers single heritable elements that are functionally equivalent to a nucleotide. The genetic complexity, roughly measured by the number of non-redundant functional nucleotides, is expected to have grown exponentially due to several positive feedback factors: Linear regression of genetic complexity on a log scale extrapolated back to just one base pair suggests the time of the origin of life 9.
This cosmic time scale for the evolution of life has important consequences: Evolution of advanced organisms has accelerated via development of additional information-processing systems: As a result the doubling time of complexity has reached ca. Finally, the research team discusses milecular issue of the predicted technological singularity and give a biosemiotics perspective on the increase of complexity.
Methodology designed to circumnavigate the classical Abbe diffraction barrier in optical microscopy is rapidly advancing using both ensemble and single-molecule techniques.
Over the past several decades, fluorescence microscopy has become an essential tool for examining a wide variety of biological molecules, pathways, and dynamics in living cells, tissues, and whole animals. In contrast to other techniques such as electron microscopyfluorescence imaging is compatible with cells that are being maintained in culture, which enables minimally invasive optical-based observation of events occurring on a large span of timescales.
In terms of spatial resolution, several techniques including positron-emission tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and optical coherence tomography can generate images of animal deicion human subjects at resolutions between 10 centimeters and 10 micrometers, whereas electron microscopy and scanning probe albertz feature the highest spatial resolution, often approaching the molecular and atomic levels see Figure.
Between these two extremes in resolving power lies optical microscopy. Aside from the benefits derived from being able to image living cells, the most significant drawback to all forms of fluorescence microscopy including widefield, laser scanning, spinning disk, multiphoton, and total internal reflection are the limits to spatial resolution that were first elucidated and described by Ernst Abbe in the late s. The Molecjlar diffraction limit or at least the recognition of this limit stood for almost a century before inventive microscopists began to examine how their instruments could be improved to circumvent the physical barriers in order to achieve higher resolution.
Due to the fact that axial resolution is far lower than lateral resolution by at least a factor of twomuch of the work conducted in the latter part of the twentieth century addressed improvements to performance in the axial dimension.
Researchers discovered that laser scanning confocal instruments produced very modest increases in resolution at the cost of signal-to-noise, and that other associated technologies including multiphoton, structured illumination, and spinning disk could be used for optical sectioning, but without significant improvement in axial resolution.
An important concept to note, and one of the most underappreciated facts associated with optical imaging in biology, is that the achieved microscope resolution often does not reach the physical limit imposed by diffraction.

This is due to the fact that optical inhomogeneities in the specimen can distort the phase of the excitation beam, leading to a focal volume that is significantly larger than the diffraction-limited ideal.
Furthermore, resolution can also be compromised by improper alignment of the microscope, the use of incompatible immersion oil, coverslips having a thickness outside the optimum range, and improperly adjusted correction collars. The most significant advances brruce superresolution imaging have been achieved in what is termed far-field microscopy and involve either spatially or temporally modulating the transition between two molecular states of a fluorophore such as switching between a dark and bright state or by physically reducing the size of the point-spread function used in the excitation illumination.
Among the methods that improve resolution by Alberrs modification, the most important techniques are referred to by the acronyms STED stimulated emission depletion; from the Stefan Hell laboratory and SSIM saturated structured illumination microscopy; pioneered by Mats Gustafsson.
As will be discussed, there are many variations on these techniques, as well as advanced methods that can combine or even improve the performance of existing imaging schemes. Even more importantly, new superresolution techniques are being introduced with almost milecular speed relative to traditional advances in microscopy and it is not unreasonable to suggest that at some point in the near future, resolution of a single nanometer may well be attainable in commercial instruments.
The introduction of the first transgenic plant 30 years ago heralded the start of a second green revolution, providing food to the starving, profits to farmers and environmental benefits to boot. Many GM crops fulfilled the promise. But their success has been mired in controversy with many questioning their safety, their profitability and their green credentials. A polarized debate has left little room for consensus. Slow US regulatory process highlights hurdles of getting engineered alberhs animals to dinner tables.
Genetically modified crops have gained ground on their conventional counterparts, but the vast majority are grown in five countries, featuring four crops and two principal traits. The true, the false and the still unknown about transgenic crops. The next wave of genetically modified crops is making its way to market — and might just ease concerns over ‘Frankenfoods’.
Policy-makers in developing countries should not be swayed by the politicized arguments dominant in Europe, say Christopher J. This Perspective discusses the emerging advances in plant membrane transporters, which can be used to improve crop yields, nutritional value, and environmental stress resistance. 5ra studies reveal if genes really escape from the fields where GM crops are grown, and if their use really leads to a drop in pesticide use.
Feeding the world is going to require the scientific and financial muscle of agricultural biotechnology companies. Natasha Gilbert asks whether they’re up to the task. Papers suggesting that biotech crops might harm the environment attract a hail of abuse from other scientists.
Emily Waltz asks if the critics fight fair. Carleen Eaton utilizes her M. Carleen covers all the AP tested topics from cell structure to evolution to the laboratory review. Eaton has been teaching math and science for over 10 years and has won numerous “Teacher of the Year” awards and is consistently ranked as one of the top instructors in California.
This course is indispensable for the student looking to ace the AP Biology test as Carleen covers the important concepts with fully illustrated diagrams before going in-depth into problems encountered in the multiple choice and free response sections. The harvest, half a ton of grain serve to develop and carry out a clinical trial with patients. Researchers believe that the cereal could reach the market within five years When people with celiac disease consume gluten – a protein found in wheat, barley and rye – their body’s defenses react and damage the intestine.

As a result, brruce are diarrhea, vomiting and unexplained weight loss until it is given to the cause. Their only option now is to eat gluten-free foods that are more expensive. Celiacs spent each year 1, euros more on food than the other people.
Now, Barro has asked the National Biosafety Commission for a permit to grow wheat for the first time outdoors. Eficion goal is to harvest half a ton of grain to make crackers that will be used to conduct a clinical trial with celiacs.
The biologist believes his cereal could reach the market within five years. Barro is aware that its GM wheat “has no chance in Europe”, the continent most reluctant to genetically modified organisms.
Europe only allows the cultivation of two GM crops: However, following a hypocritical policy, Brussels does support importing about 40 GM products from other countries.
According to preliminary studies, “in the worst case, a celiac can [at least] eat every day three slices of bread made from the modified wheat”. Barro team has organized a blind tasting with 11 edicipn, who were unable to distinguish the normal wheat bread from the one brucf with transgenic cereals. To prevent the escape of genetically modified wheat from the plot CSIC scientists impose a safety distance of meters to any other plot with cereal.
Barro considered very unlikely that there is a leak, because “wheat pollen is heavy” and cannot travel long distances on the wind. Wheat 5ha for coeliacs has its genes modified to suppress the proteins responsible for the allergic response of celiacs, gliadins.
molecuoar Original article in Spanish: Science remains institutionally sexist. Despite some progress, women scientists are still paid less, promoted less, win fewer grants and are more likely to leave research than similarly qualified men. This issue is dedicated to the memory of Maxine Clarke. Scientists say amending an EU directive on GMOs could help stimulate innovation in making cheaper vaccines, pharmaceuticals and organic plastics using plants.
In a paper to be published in Current Pharmaceutical Design, six scientists from the US and Europe, including Dr Penny Sparrow from the John Innes Centre, compare risk assessment and regulation between the two continents In the EU, plant-made pharmaceuticals have to be authorised in the same way as GM agricultural crops. In theory, agricultural crops can be grown by any farmer in the EU once approved.
But for crops producing pharmaceuticals this would never actually happen. Drug companies would likely license farmers to grow these crops under controlled, defined and confined conditions This could be of huge benefit in developing countries where problems with storage can render vaccines useless Just one farm growing 16, acres of safflower could meet the world’s total demand for insulin.
But potential cost savings are eliminated under current regulations, set up for GM agricultural crops not pharmaceuticals. This helps keep Europe behind in exploiting the potential of these technologies Y la noticia oficial del MIT responsables de tal descubrimiento: Documento creado y compartido: This is a fun but celyla site!
