Scientists propose a pseudotargeted metabolomics protocol

A research group led by Prof. Xu Guowang from the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences proposed a protocol by systematically summarizing and upgrading the pseudotargeted metabolomics method.

Researchers establish atlas of lipids in living organisms

In an effort intended to accelerate research into lipids, a research group led by scientists from the RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences (IMS), the RIKEN Center for Sustainable Resource Science (CSRS), and the ...

Earth's species have more in common than previously believed

The Earth hosts an abundance of life forms—from well-known animals and plants to small, more hardy life forms such as archaea, viruses and bacteria. These life forms are fundamentally different all the way down to the cell ...

Novel software tool extracts important chemical exposure data

Southwest Research Institute is introducing Floodlight, a novel software tool that efficiently discovers the vast numbers of chemical components—previously known and unknown—present in the food, air, drugs and products ...

World first for reading digitally encoded synthetic molecules

Using mass spectrometry, researchers have for the first time read several bytes of data recorded on a molecular scale using synthetic polymers. Their work sets a new benchmark for the amount of data stored as a sequence of ...

Widely used database of molecular 'fingerprints' upgraded

When scientists need to identify an unknown compound, they do what a police detective might do. They get fingerprints—in this case, the "molecular fingerprints" of the unknown compound—and run them through a database ...
