Scientists chart course toward a new world of synthetic biology

Added: 20.06.2019 1:18 | 9 views | 0 comments

A team has compiled a roadmap for the future of synthetic or engineering biology, based on the input of 80 leaders in the field from more than 30 institutions. The report provides a strong case that the federal government should invest in this area, not only to improve public health, food crops and the environment, but also to fuel the economy and maintain the country's leadership in synthetic/engineering biology.

Unlike flawless gems, fibrous diamonds often contain small saline inclusions. These give hints to scientists about the conditions under which diamonds are formed deep in the Earth's mantle. A research team has now solved the puzzle of the formation of these inclusions by simulating conditions of extreme heat and pressure in the laboratory.

Novel Anti-Inflammatory Molecule Isolated from Soil-Dwelling Bacterium

Added: 19.06.2019 20:25 | 17 views | 0 comments

About three decades after scientists coined the term ‘hygiene hypothesis’ to suggest that increased exposure to microorganisms could benefit health, an international team of biologists from the United States, the United Kingdom and Hungary has identified an anti-inflammatory lipid in the soil-dwelling bacterium Mycobacterium vaccae that may be responsible. Professor David Strachan from the London [...]

Sleeping with a television or light on in the room may be a risk factor for gaining weight or developing obesity, according to scientists. The research is the first to find an association between sleeping with artificial light at night and weight gain in women. The results suggest that cutting off lights at bedtime could reduce women's chances of becoming obese.

Can scientists change mucus to make it easier to clear, limiting harm to lungs?

Added: 19.06.2019 19:36 | 4 views | 0 comments

For people with conditions such as cystic fibrosis and COPD, mucus can get too thick and sticky; coughing alone can't clear it. Infections develop, leading to severe chronic disease and early death. Now, for the first time, scientists have shown why coughing often cannot tear mucus apart and away from the airway lining. And they showed how to make mucus thinner and less sticky so coughing can become a therapeutic aid.

COPD-associated inflammation halted in model experiment

Added: 19.06.2019 19:36 | 3 views | 0 comments

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD for short, is believed to be the third most common cause of death worldwide. However, because the underlying mechanism is still largely unknown, today's treatments can only slow progression of the disease. Scientists have now reported a previously unknown pathogenic mechanism, which they have already been able to prevent in the laboratory.
