Digital Biology and Bio-Digitization: A Historical Overview

Describing what digital biology entails has never been an easy task. At times it has been considered a twin to synthetic biology and at others a subset of biodata fields. Its true nature is so broad that even considering it to be a single field may end up proving fallacious in the future and it […]

Global Transportation Raises Biosecurity Concerns With Plant Pathogens

With an ever increasing population and global interaction, trade between nations and people moving to and fro poses distinct risks to biosecurity concerns. Human diseases are obviously top of the list, but because they involve direct contamination by humans themselves with other humans, most medical organizations around the world have numerous measures in place to […]

New Flower Developed With Evolutionary Autopolyploidy In Past 200 Years

The study of evolutionary history and how species have developed into the modern forms we know them for today has always been a continuing and ongoing process. As new knowledge on ancient and extinct species is unearthed and matched to their evolved living descendants, we are then able to further fill out the complicated pattern […]

RNA-Targeting CRISPR-Cas9 Cures Neurological Diseases In Living Cells

The research into new forms of CRISPR seems never-ending. It is an ongoing goal of scientists around the world to expand scientific knowledge on different kinds of CRISPR and also creating newfound capabilities for the existing varieties. Since the greater the flexibility of the tools available to science, the more treatments and medicines that can […]

Golden Rice 3.0 Offers Iron and Zinc In Addition To Vitamin A

Nutrition and a sufficiently rounded diet of vitamins and minerals is key to remaining healthy. This is true for every person in the world. Unfortunately, there are many, billions even, that lack critical nutrients in their diets. This is often due to a combination of poverty, location, climate, and a societal and cultural focus on […]

Paleovirology and Next Generation Sequencing Unveils Unknown Viruses

Viruses are not always loose, free-floating pieces of encapsulated DNA in the environment, unlike most kinds of bacteria. Instead, many of them spend their life cycle, as much as a virus can be said to have one, inside other organisms like the aforementioned bacteria or higher order creatures. And for the viruses in the family […]

The Mechanics of Plant and Weed Mimicry: An Overview

Plant mimicry has always been a rather select field, both in nature and in scientific study, though not necessarily uncommon in the former. This selectivity is due to the fact that it serves no direct benefit in the battle between different plants for sunlight or other sorts of land superiority. Instead, before humans, mimicry of […]

A Breakthrough In DMD Treatment In Dogs May Pave Way To Human Cure

Degenerative diseases are never a fun topic to talk about. They involve the gradual wasting away of the body or mind, the losing of oneself over time to decay. History has long focused on such disorders and the horrors both for the person and those around them. It is no surprise then, that with the […]

An Official CRISPR Library For Genetic Silencing Guidance

While genetic modification tools like CRISPR have opened up new doors to making changes to genomes, it is still not as simple of a task as putting the CRISPR complex into a cell and having it go to work. It first must be given a target DNA sequence to focus on and, in most cases, […]
