BD launches new digital marketplace for flow cytometry
Becton Dickinson (BD) has launched bdbiosciences.com, an updated digital marketplace for flow cytometry. The new website provides an enhanced online purchasing experience for flow cytometry users and their procurement teams. Read More
Algorithm expands what scientists can uncover from individual cells
A new software tool can help researchers further utilize single-cell RNA sequencing data to learn more about individual cells by incorporating biologically relevant data into the analysis. The machine-learning algorithm, detailed in Genome Research on June 30, can be used to predict which transcription factors are most active in individual cells. Read More
What makes immunotherapies successful in one tumor but not in others?
Researchers have developed a new framework to uncover pathophysiological and molecular features that determine the effectiveness of immunotherapies. The research, published in Nature Communications on June 29, provides an opportunity for improving patient care and gaining a deeper understanding of cancer immunotherapy mechanisms. Read More
How being an effective mentor can advance science
Mentorship in the sciences is about making sure the next generation has the skills needed to be successful and to take science to the next level, explained Michael Howell, PhD, chief scientific officer at DermTech, during a recent conversation with ScienceBoard.net. Read More
Trial and error help researchers design large 'ideal' proteins
Researchers have designed "ideal" functional proteins using a trial-and-error iterative process that combines computer design and lab experiments based on the principles of protein folding. This work, published in Nature Communications on June 24, paves the way for the de novo design of large proteins with relevant biochemical functions. Read More
NanoTemper unveils Andromeda to increase protein production
NanoTemper Technologies has released Andromeda, an instrument that determines optimal expression levels and thermal stability of recombinant membrane proteins in crude lysates. Read More
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
