Bern coronavirus clone goes "viral"

Rapid reconstruction of SARS-CoV-2 using a synthetic genomics platform


Researchers in virology and veterinary bacteriology at the University of Bern have cloned the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2). The synthetic clones are being used by research groups worldwide to test corona samples, find antiviral drugs and develop vaccines as quickly as possible. The method ...


Drug discovery potential of natural microbial genomes

Advanced genetic technique yields novel antibiotic from ocean bacteria


Scientists at the University of California, San Diego have developed a new genetic platform that allows efficient production of naturally occurring molecules, and have used it to produce a novel antibiotic compound. Their study, published in PNAS, may open new avenues for natural product ...

Japanese researchers succeed in making generations of mouse clones


Using the technique that created Dolly the sheep, researchers from the RIKEN Center for Developmental Biology in Kobe, Japan have identified a way to produce healthy mouse clones that live a normal lifespan and can be sequentially cloned indefinitely. In an experiment that started in 2005, the ...


Scientists clone 'survivor' elm trees


Scientists at the University of Guelph have found a way to successfully clone American elm trees that have survived repeated epidemics of their biggest killer — Dutch elm disease.The breakthrough, published in the Canadian Journal of Forest Research, is the first known use of in vitro culture ...


Algeta appoints Lars Abrahmsén as Senior Vice President, Protein Therapeutics

New role created to drive the development of Algeta's Thorium platform


Algeta ASA announced that Dr. Lars Abrahmsén has been appointed as Senior Vice President, Protein Therapeutics and will take up this new role on 15 November 2010. Dr. Abrahmsén will be responsible for the development of Algeta's Thorium platform and for building and overseeing the preclinical ...


Small mechanical forces have big impact on embryonic stem cells


Applying a small mechanical force to embryonic stem cells could be a new way of coaxing them into a specific direction of differentiation, researchers at the University of Illinois report. Applications for force-directed cell differentiation include therapeutic cloning and regenerative ...


The Nobel Assembly awards The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2009

The Nobel Assembly is awarded jointly to Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak for the discovery of "how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase"


The Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet awards The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2009 jointly to Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak for the discovery of "how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase" This year's Nobel Prize in ...


Genetic discovery could break wine industry bottleneck, accelerate grapevine breeding

Could point the way toward production of European-tasting wines from American vines


One of the best known episodes in the 8000-year history of grapevine cultivation led to biological changes that have not been well understood – until now. Through biomolecular detective work, German researchers have uncovered new details about the heredity of Vitis varieties in cultivation today. ...

MSU researchers improve zebrafish cloning methods


A team of Michigan State University researchers has developed a new, more efficient way of cloning zebra fish, a breakthrough that could have implications for human health research. The work of the MSU researchers, detailed in Nature Methods, is important because zebra fish are quickly becoming ...


Reprogramming Human Cells Without Inserting Genes

Research Team at WPI and CellThera Discovers a Way toTurn on Stem Cell Genes in Human Skin Cells Without Using Viruses or Inserting New Genes


A research team comprised of faculty at Worcester Polytechnic Institute's (WPI) Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center (LSBC) and investigators at CellThera, a private company also located at the LSBC, has discovered a novel way to turn on stem cell genes in human fibroblasts (skin cells) ...
