Novel antigen-cloning technique may boost efforts to develop a melanoma vaccine

... With her new technique, Herlyn expresses the cDNA library in bacteriophages that are incubated with B cells from the same patient from whom the T cells were derived. Because B cells are antigen-presenting cells, once they have picked up, or "eaten," the phages, the B cells will express the peptides that are...

They then inject the clones into Tobacco Hawkmoth Caterpillars to study the effects. Their work has shown that clones containing harmless genetic material are recognised and...

New biochip helps study living cells, may speed drug development

...that need less fertilizer," he said. "If you had a library of genes that were associated with high nitrogen-use efficiency -- thus making the plant need less nitrogen fertilizer -- you could transform a group of maize cells with these genes and then screen each cell to determine the most efficient. Then you ...
