It took several years, but a research team headed by Professor Jens Nielsen at Chalmers University of Technology has finally succeeded in mapping out the complex metabolism of yeast cells. The breakthrough, recently published ...
Cells—the building blocks of our bodies—are encapsulated by membranes. The same goes for the specialized compartments within our cells.
Genetic mutation may drive evolution, but not all by itself. Physics can be a powerful co-pilot, sometimes even setting the course.
Our old friend Saccharomyces cerevisiae – the yeast that's helped people bake bread and brew beer for millennia – has just had its sex life upgraded.
Using a modified version of the CRISPR genome-editing system, MIT researchers have developed a new way to screen for genes that protect against specific diseases.
New research from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology, to be published in the Journal of Biological Chemistry on Oct. 13, has found that the proteasome, an essential protein complex that breaks down proteins in ...
Researchers at ETH have discovered that the formation of protein aggregates in yeast cells is reversible. This casts new light on human diseases that can be attributed to certain protein aggregates.
Researchers at the University of Delaware are looking into what causes that gut feeling in livestock animals such as cows and chickens.
New insights into how our cells store and manage DNA during cell division could help point towards the causes of a rare developmental condition.
Osaka University scientists show molecular factors that determine why some regions in yeast chromosomes are apt for remodeling, while other regions stay faithful during cell replication.
