Engineers create an inhalable form of messenger RNA

Patients with lung disease could find relief by breathing in messenger RNA molecules In an advance that could lead to new treatments for lung disease, researchers have now designed an inhalable form of mRNA. This aerosol could be administered directly to the lungs to help treat diseases such as cystic fibrosis, the researchers say. Messenger … More Engineers create an inhalable form of messenger RNA

Scientists engineer shortcut for photosynthetic glitch, boost crop growth 40%

Most crops on the planet are plagued by a photosynthetic glitch, and to deal with it, evolved an energy-expensive process called photorespiration that drastically suppresses their yield potential. Researchers reportthat crops engineered with a photorespiratory shortcut are 40 percent more productive in real-world agronomic conditions. Plants convert sunlight into energy through photosynthesis; however, most crops … More Scientists engineer shortcut for photosynthetic glitch, boost crop growth 40%
