Virtual framework provides unprecedented detail of the heart
Researchers have created a comprehensive map of cardiac neurons at the cellular scale that allows for gene expression data to be superimposed, giving insight into the functional roles of specific neuron clusters. The work was published in iScience on May 26.  Discuss
Big data analysis of images may aid vaccine development
A new pipeline that combines high-dimensional microscopy with big data analysis to gain molecular insights in T-cell biology and vaccine development was introduced in a paper published in Cell Systems on May 20.  Discuss
SARS-CoV mAb shown to block SARS-CoV-2
Antibodies from recovered SARS-CoV patients appear to block SARS-CoV-2 infectivity and could help in the development of antiviral treatments or vaccines, according to a new study. The findings were published in Nature on May 18.  Discuss
New STM technique could lead to purer pharmaceuticals
A research project led by chemists at the University of Warwick has revealed how ultrahigh-resolution scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) can be used to determine precise molecular interactions, which could be particularly useful for the production of raw materials. The report was published in Nature Communications on April 30.  Discuss
It's time to enlist research labs in the COVID-19 fight
Careful incorporation of research laboratories into the COVID-19 testing effort could increase capacity in the U.S. and globally, writes molecular diagnostics expert Rahul Sharma, PhD, in this second opinion article.  Discuss
COVID-19 shuts down research labs as concern grows among scientists
Almost half of all scientific research labs that participated in a recent survey were shut down due to concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak. Survey results indicate that scientists are quite concerned and that their work is considerably impacted by the pandemic, according to a new COVID-19 scientist sentiment tracker.  Discuss
Researchers bait viruses with chemically designed structures
A new therapeutic approach for suppressing seasonal influenza that involves synthetic phage shells that interfere with pathogen adhesion is immediately being tested for use on coronaviruses in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic. The research findings were published in Nature Nanotechnology on March 30.  Discuss
Scientists alter cell function with genetic engineering, polymer science
A new method called genetically targeted chemical assembly (GTCA) has demonstrated the ability to build artificial structures within the body to carry out unique functions. The research, presented in the latest edition of Science, provides compelling evidence for GTCA's ability to modify cell function with bioengineering tools.  Discuss
Systems-based analysis helps researchers understand cell migration
An international team of researchers has developed a unique library to study the regulation of the cytoskeleton in space and time. The work, published in Nature Cell Biology on March 23, takes a systems-based approach to gain an overview of this process.  Discuss
Cryo-EM sheds light on ion channel regulation
A long-standing hypothesis about the regulation of ion channels has been confirmed by cryoelectron microscopy (cryo-EM) imaging. The research presented in Nature on March 18 advances the basic understanding of key cellular processes that can be leveraged for a number of therapeutic and research applications.  Discuss
