Hidden signs in cancer tissue
When scientists at ETH Zurich analysed huge amounts of genetic cancer data, they found previously unresearched molecular changes. These could help in developing new personalised cancer treatments.
A research team led by Gunnar Rätsch, Professor of Biomedical Informatics at ETH Zurich, has e ... more
A novel antibiotic from weeds
Researchers working on an SNSF project have discovered novel, antibiotically active chemical substances in a previously rarely explored site: the leaf of a common field weed. The just published findings show that this microcosm contains many still unknown natural products that could lead to ... more
