Embryology is the study of the development of an embryo. An embryo is defined as any organism in an early stage well before birth or hatching, or in plants, before germination occurs.
Researchers have successfully used CRISPR-Cas9 to edit the genomes of the black-legged tick. To accomplish this feat, they developed an embryo injection protocol that overcame a major barrier in the field.
We speak to Dr. Chao Ma, one of the speakers at SLAS 2022, about his groundbreaking 'leukemia-on-a-chip' technology and its future within therapy resistance.
In this interview, we speak to Matt Mosey, an account manager for BioDock, about the importance of sample storage and its many benefits for researchers.
Scientists from the RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR) successfully created the first genetically engineered marsupial. The research and its findings published in the Current Biology journal help decipher the genetic background of special characteristics found only in marsupials.
A team of researchers has studied the molecular profile of small “messenger” vesicles called exosomes, produced by cancer stem cells (CSCs), which play a key role in the process of carcinogenesis and metastasis in the blood of patients with malignant melanoma.
An international research project has used gene-editing technology to examine the heat tolerance of Great Barrier Reef coral with the results set to guide efforts in combatting the effects of climate change.
The lack of some genes in the BEC/TCEAL cluster could be related to some alterations associated with the autism spectrum disorder, according to a preclinical study published in the journal Genome Biology, and led by Professor Jordi Garcia Fernàndez, from the Faculty of Biology and the Institute of Biomedicine of the University of Barcelona (IBUB), and researcher Jaime Carvajal, from the Andalusian Centre for Developmental Biology - University Pablo de Olavide (CSIC-UPO).
Researchers have achieved, for the first time, a look into the complex workings of a cell from within the cell.
The intervertebral discs connect the vertebrae and give the spine its mobility. The disc consists of a cartilaginous fibrous ring and a gelatinous core as a buffer.
Using a detailed genetic analysis, a research team from Japan-based Kumamoto University has discovered that the NSD2 enzyme, which controls the actions of several genes, also functions to block the aging of cells.
Researchers from the University of Cambridge have devised a new model to analyze an early stage of human development through human embryonic stem cells.
The gene C19ORF57 has been identified to play a major role in meiosis by the Institute of Molecular Embryology and Genetics at Kumamoto University.
For the first time, scientists have introduced minuscule tracking devices directly into the interior of mammalian cells, giving an unprecedented peek into the processes that govern the beginning of development.
