Scientists describe yet another creative application for CRISPR: a platform to spur evolution of specific genes inside cells. Their inventive new system, 'EvolvR', lets scientists shake up the DNA letters in their gene of choice until they find the variation that?s just right.
A team of engineers and physicians have developed a device that diffuses potent disinfectants for airborne delivery. Notably, the device works on a range of disinfectants that have never been atomized before, such as Triethylene glycol, or TEG.
A new study in which scientists compared drug responses in the brains of rodents to drug responses of brain cells cultured in Lab-developed 'brain-on-a-chip' devices, may be a critical first step to validating chip-based brain platforms.
