A biosensor is a device for the detection of an analyte that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector component.
Researchers have manipulated beta-lactoglobulin, or β-lactoglobulin, by using an Australian-made innovative thin-film microfluidic device.
Researchers at the University of California, Davis, have created a genetically encoded sensor for detecting hallucinogenic substances.
Scientists from the University of California, Irvine, analyzed gains and losses in the genes of phytoplankton samples gathered from all major ocean regions to develop the most refined and highest-resolution map that shows where these photosynthetic organisms either survive or are forced to adapt to restricted amounts of main nutrients, nitrogen, iron, and phosphorus.
The latest discovery aboard the International Space Station could now enable scientists to develop the “fuel” to help plants endure such stressful conditions.
The research team that developed a biosensor that first recorded that a distinct gradient of the plant growth hormone gibberellin correlated with plant cell size has now revealed how this distribution pattern is created in roots.
A world-first discovery by researchers at Monash University and The University of Queensland could lead to faster and more effective treatments for chronic health complications, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer, with 'fluorescent' in vivo biosensors.
Metabolites are essentially organic molecules that are formed or participate during the biochemical reactions that continuously occur in an organism.
Researchers have defined a new protein imaging technique that may result in novel discoveries in disease, cell analysis, biological tissue, and more.
Some people love spicy food -- the hotter, the better. Others go out of their way to avoid the palate-singeing burn of capsaicin, the compound that gives chili peppers their kick.
The COVID-19 pandemic is undoubtedly the most challenging global health burden since the 2nd World War. The pandemic has raised social awareness on the importance of effective and timely diagnosis that may help minimize the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19.
Scientists have made it simple for researchers to interpret biological processes all by making a small change to the color palette.
A University of Central Florida researcher is developing new technology to make sure people are getting the food they think they are eating.
Plant biologists have been looking to gain insight into the underlying processes involving enzymes, kinases that catalyze biological activities in proteins.
Engineers at UC Riverside's Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering have received a $600,000 grant from the National Institute of Justice to develop a test kit that can rapidly identify body fluids at crime scenes.
Our brain contains tens of billions of nerve cells (neurons) which constantly communicate with each other by sending chemical and electrical flashes, each lasting a short one millisecond (0.001 sec). In every millisecond, these billions of swift-flying flashes altogether traveling in a giant star-map in the brain that lights up a tortuous glittering pattern.
