New DNA amplification capsule holds promise for fighting diseases

DNA amplification—a molecular "photocopying" technique where genetic material is replicated—has many applications in scientific research, forensic science, and medical laboratories. It is useful for detecting and identifying ...

Painting the molecular canvas in super-resolution

To understand how individual molecules play their roles in biological processes inside the cells they are synthesized in, researchers have developed super-resolution microscopy methods to visualize them at the single-molecule ...

Scientists work on creating molecular-sized microchip elements

Modern silicon-based integrated circuits (ICs) have reached the practical limits of miniaturisation, while the use of organics can potentially allow the creation of microchip elements as large as a single molecule. Scientists ...
