Determining the 3-D structure of phages at atomic resolution

Phages have become a focus of research in the battle against antibiotic resistance. These bacteria-eating viruses have already proven effective in experiments against multidrug-resistant bacteria. However, the atomic structure ...

Flexible new method for early cancer diagnosis

Earlier discovery of cancer and greater precision in the treatment process are the objectives of a new method developed by researchers at Sahlgrenska Academy and Boston University. Investments are now being made to roll out ...

Researchers develop protocol to analyze many cells at once

Rutgers researchers have developed a new way to analyze hundreds of thousands of cells at once, which could lead to faster and more accurate diagnoses of illnesses, including tuberculosis and cancers.

Modeling protein interactions simplified with computer server

Proteins are the most abundant substance in living cells aside from water, and their interactions with cellular functions are crucial to healthy life. When proteins fall short of their intended function or interact in an ...

Group uses its own 'toolset' to probe chemical responses

Using a novel chemical procedure developed in her lab, Yimon Aye and her group are helping to blaze a trail in the emerging field of precision medicine by targeting and modulating single proteins to achieve desired responses.

Seeing viruses by both light and electron microscopy

Advances in both light and electron microscopy are improving scientists' ability to visualize viruses such as HIV, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), measles, influenza, and Zika in their native states. Researchers from Emory ...

New method allows easy separation of membrane proteins

Scientists have described an improved, cost-efficient method to isolate membrane proteins, a class of proteins that are the targets of more than 60 percent of approved therapeutic drugs.
