As our global population ages, we've seen research efforts focused on neurodegenerative diseases and their treatment. This year, our stories are Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease were among the most popular.
Rapidly evolving fields such as genomics and proteomics experiences huge growth in 2019. Although controversial, the potential of these technologies offer new insights into biology that seems impossible just a decade ago. From providing insights into the 3D structure of DNA to optimizing RNA-sequencing using artificial intelligence, these techniques are transforming science at light speed.
Another trend of 2019 was fighting antibiotic resistance. Researchers explored new ways to exploit cells to help us tackle this problem. Some of these included form-switching bacteria or biologically active compounds from humic substances in soil. Enabled with modern technology, researchers are able to think outside of the box to find innovative solutions to contemporary challenges.
