Flow Cytometry has been around since the 1960s and has gone through many iterations over the years. Despite its prestigious place in the field of cell biology research, many molecular biologists are still unfamiliar with the intricacies of this elegant technique and what it can accomplish. Thankfully, AbD Serotec, a Bio-Rad company, has put together […]

Like our own bodies, cells have their own skeletons called ‘cytoskeletons’ and are made of proteins instead of bones. These network-like structures maintain the cell’s shape, provide mechanical support, and are involved in critical processes of the cell’s lifecycle. The cytoskeleton is an object of intense scientific and medical research, which often requires being able […]

A new way to build membrane-crossing pores, using Lego-like DNA building blocks, has been developed by scientists at UCL, in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Cambridge and the University of Southampton. The approach provides a simple and low cost tool for synthetic biology and the technique has potential applications in diagnostic devices and […]
