Powerful technique for multiplying adult stem cells may aid therapies

... assays determining if the virus has landed in any undesirable places," says Lodish. "They could then discard those bad cells, and only administer the good ones to the patients." But most importantly, these findings aid basic research. "We want to know all sorts of things, like what genes are active in this ste...

Sweet 'water taste' paradoxically predicts sweet taste inhibitors

What's more, the new work may also lay the foundation for applications in nanotechnology -- such as microscopic sensors that could be implanted in humans to confront the effects of disease -- because it gives scientists a way to pre...

UCR researchers design chip that can improve citrus varieties

...rait posing a problem for the consumer, such as an undesirable flavor, we can identify genes associated with the trait and target these for correction to improve the flavor. The chip also helps us address citrus diseases by helping us see what happens in cells when a citrus plant is under attack from a virus. An...
