Recipe for success: Interaction proteomics become a household item

August 11, 2020 0

Category: Biotechnology Molecular & Computational biology Summary: Proteins in human cells do not function in isolation and their interactions with other proteins define their cellular functions. Therefore, detailed understanding of protein-protein interactions (PPIs) is the key for deciphering regulation of cellular networks and pathways, in both health and disease. Source: […]

New research reveals previously hidden features of plant genomes

August 10, 2020 0

Category: Biotechnology Molecular & Computational biology Summary: An international team led by the Plant Phenotyping and Imaging Research Centre (P2IRC) at the University of Saskatchewan (USask) and researchers at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC) has decoded the full genome for the black mustard plant—research that will advance breeding of oilseed […]

Third breakthrough demonstrates photosynthetic hacks can boost yield, conserve water

August 10, 2020 0

Category: Plants & Animals Biotechnology Summary: Plants are factories that manufacture yield from light and carbon dioxide—but parts of this complex process, called photosynthesis, are hindered by a lack of raw materials and machinery. To optimize production, scientists from the University of Essex have resolved two major photosynthetic bottlenecks to […]

Integration of gene regulatory networks in understanding animal behavior

August 7, 2020 0

Category: Biotechnology Molecular & Computational biology Summary: For years, scientists have attributed animal behavior to the coordinated activities of neuronal cells and its circuits of neurons, known as the neuronal network (NN). However, researchers are pushing the boundaries in understanding animal behavior through the integration of gene regulation. Source: Biotechnology […]
