Biotechnology Solves Debate Over Origin Of European Potato

For years, researchers have debated the birthplace of the European potato. Recent genetic studies revealed that the earliest known landraces of the European potato contain both Andean and Chilean molecular markers. These findings may change current breeding programs which focus solely on the Andean landraces and not the Chilean landraces, according to scientists. Molecular studies … More Biotechnology Solves Debate Over Origin Of European Potato

New microscopy technique allows mapping protein synthesis in living tissues and animals

Building on previously published research, investigators have advanced technology to allow for time-lapse images of protein synthesis with high spatial-temporal resolution in live cells/tissues and map protein degradation in live cells/tissue. They’ve successfully demonstrated that this technology can be used to image protein synthesis in brain tissues, zebrafish and mice in vivo, making it a … More New microscopy technique allows mapping protein synthesis in living tissues and animals
