Examination of internal 'wiring' of yeast, worm, and fly reveals conserved circuits

... protein interactions inside," said Trey Ideker, a bioengineering professor at the University of California, San Diego and one of the nine co-authors of the paper. "Ultimately, this type of wiring analysis will help us more fully explain how the diversity of life developed on the planet, and more practically, how a...

Mayo Clinic Researchers Create 'Obedient Virus'; First Step To Use Measles Virus Against Cancer

... send the virus after it." How They Did It Using bioengineering techniques, the team reprogrammed the measles virus to seek a cancer cell to bind to instead of its natural binding partner. Then they invented a "molecular tag" that they attached to structures on the outside of the cancer-seeking measles virus. Thi...
