​Synthetic tick-spit protein may save lives (08/07/2020)
One of the creepy things about ticks is the fact that not only do they suck your blood, but they're able to do so for a long time, undetected. Scientists have now synthesized the protein that lets them get away with it, and it may have... Next
​New CRISPR method edits crops without technically making them GMOs (17/06/2020)
CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing is one of the most powerful tools available to modern science, but genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in food are subject to some tight regulations. Now, researchers at North Carolina State University have c... Next
​Bioprinted coral outdoes the real thing at growing algae (17/06/2020)
Corals serve as a host to algae, which in turn produces sugars that the corals consume. Now, though, scientists have created 3D-printed coral that's even more algae-friendly than its natural equivalent – it could help address the probl... Next
​Replacement blood vessels may be woven from bio-yarn (17/02/2020)
When a damaged blood vessel has to be replaced, it's important that the replacement be well-tolerated by the body. And while bioprinted blood vessels are one possibility, French scientists are now working on weaving the things out of c... Next
​Newly-developed edible cotton seeds are packed with protein – not poison (11/02/2020)
Cotton is a widely-grown crop and its seeds are full of protein, so you might think they'd be a great source of food. Unfortunately, though, they're toxic to humans. That said, such is not the case with a newly-developed variety of the... Next
​CRISPR flies have been gene edited so they can eat poison (08/01/2020)
Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley have used the CRISPR gene-editing tool to give fruit flies an evolutionary advantage they’ve never had before. By making just three small changes to a single gene, the team gave the ... Next
​Live-cell pig skin successfully used to treat human burn wound (16/10/2019)
When someone has a severe burn, a protective covering needs to be temporarily grafted onto the wound site – and as soon as possible. Although that covering typically consists of skin from a human cadaver, genetically-engineered live-ce... Next
​Algae-fueled bioreactor soaks up CO2 400x more effectively than trees (01/10/2019)
When it comes to organic processes that we can leverage to tackle the runaway problem of climate change, the carbon-absorbing abilities of algae may be one of the most potent tools at our disposal. For years, scientists have been study... Next
​Food scientists cook up low-fat better butter made of mostly water (23/08/2019)
Often imitated but rarely matched, butter is one ingredient that it's important to get right. People are picky about the consistency and creaminess of their butter, and healthier alternatives have trouble getting that right. Now, food ... Next
​Sperm separation technique allows Japanese scientists to select the gender... (15/08/2019)
Up until a few short decades ago when ultrasound imagery became sharp enough to reveal the relevant details, parents had to wait for the arrival of a new family member to learn its gender. Could a day come when they're not only aware o... Next
