Why do motor neurons form faster?

Motor neurons, the nerve cells of the spinal cord that control muscle movement, form much faster than other neurons…

Bacteria hug each other tightly to avoid viral predation

Bacteria can live as isolated individual cells, but they most commonly grow in communities termed biofilms, which are…

Assembling thousands of genes at low cost [with video]

DropSynth is a simple, low-cost method to build thousands of genes in a single reaction. These gene libraries can serve…

Hybrid methods for native membrane structural biology

Membrane proteins are challenging targets for structural biology as their native environment is heterogeneous and…

Heart muscle cells fuse when the heart grows and regenerates

The mammalian heart has very limited regenerative ability. Studying organisms capable of repairing their cardiac muscle…

Macrophage blockade in early breast cancer can reduce metastasis throughout life

Immune cells play a major role in early breast cancer even before a tumor is detectable. Disruption of macrophages and…

Plants must “call for help” both early and late to be heard

Plants can effectively get rid of herbivores by "calling for help" using odors which attract animals that eat…

Uncovering the secret of the ferroptotic death program

Multicellular life developed genetically determined programs for the elimination of irreparably injured cells. While…

Optogenetic neuronal control with sub-millisecond temporal precision and cellular resolution

A new approach that allows the spatial and temporal control of neuronal activation at a single cell level with a…
