When organoids meet coronaviruses

Researchers from the group of Hans Clevers in collaboration with the group of Bart Haagmans (Erasmus MC) established an organoid biobank to search for the genes that are essential for the spreading of a SARS-CoV2 infection. ...

Fluorescent 'microtags' help track individual cells

Researchers from Skoltech and Saratov State University have designed a simple and easily reproducible labeling system for individual cells that enables researchers to track single cell behavior and migration for tasks requiring ...

To be or not to be: An organoid

Mini-organs, or organoids, play a big role in the future of medicine. Their countless applications can help develop and implement tailored therapies for each patient. The revolutionary development of organoids started in ...

Scientists have cultured the first stable coral cell lines

Researchers in Japan have established sustainable cell lines in a coral, according to a study published today in Marine Biotechnology. Seven out of eight cell cultures seeded from the stony coral Acropora tenuis have continuously ...

Scaling up genome editing in tiny worms

Understanding the effects of specific mutations in gene regulatory regions—the sections of DNA and RNA that turn genes on and off—is important to unraveling how the genome works, as well as normal development and disease. ...
