Mutant plants reveal temperature sensor

As we push the limits of agriculture to feed more people in a warmer world, we do not understand how plants sense temperature.

Expanding the optogenetics toolkit

Controlling individual brain cells using light-sensitive proteins has proven to be a powerful tool for probing the brain's complexities. As this branch of neuroscience has expanded, so has the demand for a diverse palette ...

Structure of primary optogenetic tool revealed

An international team of researchers has determined the 3-D structure of channelrhodopsin 2, a membrane protein widely used in optogenetics to control nerve cells with light. Optogenetics is a relatively new technique that ...
