Blue, Red and White Signals Alert Us to Deadly Pathogens in Food

A team of researchers at Osaka Metropolitan University has developed a method to identify food poisoning-causing bacteria as different colours of light under the microscope, shortening the turnaround time for microbiological analysis of foods for enhanced food safety.

Harmless No More? Bacteria Prevalent in Respiratory Tract Identified as Key Factor in the Worsening of Lung Disease

In a breakthrough by an international team of researchers, with researchers from Nanyang Technological University’s Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in the lead, Neisseria subflava has been identified as the key factor behind the worsening of bronchiectasis, and may also cause infections with pre-existing asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Microproteins Control Molecular-Level Metabolic Processes

Researchers at Duke-NUS Medical School have uncovered how microproteins play a role in regulating the energy supply in mitochondria.

Influenced by Its Neighbours: The Variation of Single-Cell Gene Expression

Determination of the neighbouring cell types that regulate the gene expression of a single cell has now been made possible, thanks to a statistical method developed by researchers from the University of Tsukuba.

Observing Life on a Single-Molecular Scale

Researchers at the Pohang University of Science and Technology have developed a novel method to observe single molecules using a special treatment, followed by tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS).

Improving Anti-Cancer Therapies with a Better Understanding of the Repair Mechanisms of DNA Damage

New insights into the DNA repair mechanisms of cells may open avenues to enhancing anti-cancer therapies.

Using Gas Bubbles as Lenses to View Tissues More Deeply

A team of researchers at the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) have developed a method to improve the depth of the optical imaging of living tissues using a layer of ultrasound-created gas bubbles.

Seismic Monitoring to Advance Carbon Sequestration Technology

Researchers led by the University of Tokyo and Kyushu University can help to further enhance carbon sequestration efforts using their Portable Active Seismic Source device, which will allow for extended kilometre-scale subsurface monitoring to detect CO2 leaks.

Producing Biodegradable Plastic Feedstock Through Artificial Photosynthesis

Researchers at the Osaka Metropolitan University have successfully developed a light-driven, artificial photosynthesis pathway to increase yields of chemical feedstock for biodegradable plastics.

Seawater as a Renewable Energy Source

Renewable energy may now be harnessed from saltwater by means of a nanopore membrane, courtesy of researchers from Osaka University.

Key Step in Hepatitis A Virus Replication and Potential Drug for Its Targeting Identified

Researchers at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine have discovered the mechanism by which hepatitis A virus replicates and have successfully identified a drug that has the capability to stop such replications.

Creating Artificial Cells from Bacteria

A team of scientists at the University of Bristol have successfully harnessed bacteria to produce lifelike artificial cells.

Generating Oxygen Within Cells

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) have developed a never-before-seen method to generate oxygen molecules within cells.
