Do mom's or dad's genes win out in a child's gene expression?
A team of scientists has identified 71 new "imprinted" genes in the mouse genome. The new findings, published in Nature Communications on June 21, help uncover some of the scientific mysteries associated with epigenetics and point to how a parent's genes are uniquely turned off or on in their offspring.

New in vitro models offer effective way to study respiratory viruses
A new accessible and scalable protocol for manufacturing in vitro lung cell models could have applications in the development of new therapies for respiratory viral infections and drug toxicology studies on human lungs. Details about the protocol were published in Stem Cells on June 21. Read More
Bruker launches new tools to improve 4D-metabolomics, lipidomics workflows
Bruker has launched several products to enhance the accuracy of 4D-metabolomics and lipidomics workflows, including a new ion source for its trapped ion mobility spectrometry time-of-flight (timsTOF) Pro 2 platform and new bioinformatics software for small-molecule workflows. Read More
MolDiscovery algorithm helps scientists find promising small molecules
A computer algorithm called molDiscovery uses mass spectrometry data from small molecules to predict the identity of unknown substances, potentially saving researchers time and money in the search for new naturally occurring products with medical uses. The new approach was reported in Nature Communications on June 17. Read More
Mentors are essential to career journeys
Regardless of your current professional status, supportive mentors are critical for helping you achieve your career goals, according to Michael Howell, PhD, chief scientific officer at DermTech. Howell recently spoke with ScienceBoard.net. Read More

Sciex has announced the release of ZenoTOF 7600, a new liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS)/MS instrument for low-level metabolite detection. Read More
Mobilion launches Mobie mass spectrometer
Mobilion Systems has launched a high-resolution ion mobility mass spectrometry instrument called Mobie for biopharmaceutical drug development and workflows for monitoring critical quality attributes. Read More
New AI model could predict viral jumps from animals to humans
A new artificial intelligence (AI)-based computational model called SweetNet aimed at characterizing complex carbohydrates could help predict which viruses are likely to spread from animals to humans. The details of the research were published in Cell Reports on June 15. Read More
Collaboration targets new treatments for brain diseases
Developing more effective methods to deliver drugs across the blood-brain barrier is the goal of a new collaboration being led by the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University. Read More
How one mammalian DNA polymerase challenges the central dogma of biology
New research demonstrates how an unusual mammalian DNA polymerase can facilitate the conversion of RNA into DNA -- the opposite of normal polymerase function. The data, published in Science Advances on June 11, could challenge the central dogma of molecular biology that states that DNA makes RNA, which in turn makes proteins. Read More
