Student team engineers E. coli  to adhere to colon cancer cells

Billions of harmless Escherichia coli bacteria thrive in the human gut, but why aren't the microbes flushed out of the intestines through digestion? Bacteria like E. coli produce pili, appendages resembling long strands of ...

Researchers develop basic computing elements for bacteria

The "friendly" bacteria inside our digestive systems are being given an upgrade, which may one day allow them to be programmed to detect and ultimately treat diseases such as colon cancer and immune disorders.

Better mouse model enables colon cancer research

Every day, it seems, someone in some lab is "curing cancer." Well, it's easy to kill cancer cells in a lab, but in a human, it's a lot more complicated, which is why nearly all cancer drugs fail clinical trials.

Small RNA plays big role suppressing cancer

The micro RNA miR-22 has long been known for its ability to suppress cancer. However, questions remain about how it achieves this feat. For example, which molecules are regulating miR-22, and which are miR22 targets?

Rapid diagnostics, a new opportunity for European companies

Led by the Basque R&D Alliance IK4, 13 organisations in 8 different countries have been conducting research for three years under the European LabOnFoil project to develop new rapid diagnostic devices.
