Superselective colloid-surface binding visualized

Rather than one key and one strong lock, biology often uses tens or hundreds of weaker links to bind parts together, such as cell membranes. This allows for selectivity and also reversibility—the binding can also be undone. ...

In situ extraction and detection of DNA using nanopores

Being able to detect DNA from a single cell is important for the detection of diseases and genetic disorders. Measuring single DNA molecules has been possible for some time; however, directly detecting samples at the point ...

DNA-based material with tunable properties

While DNA is often idealized as the "molecule of life," it is also a highly sophisticated polymer that can be used for next-generation materials. Beyond the fact that it can store information, further fascinating aspects ...

Sixty-year-old question on DNA replication timing sequence answered

Over the last 60 years, scientists have been able to observe how and when genetic information was replicated, determining the existence a "replication timing program," a process that controls when and in what order segments ...
