Using full-length NSH, containing different amounts of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues, we demonstrate that C5-epimerase specificity relates to polysaccharide sequence, particularly the location of GlcNAc residues within the chain. Read more..

New approach could be used to detect and kill viruses in the bloodstream

By folding snippets of DNA into the shape of a five-pointed star using structural DNA nanotechnology, researchers have created a trap that captures Dengue virus as it floats in the bloodstream.

Greater understanding of phenomena could enable unprecedented control over gene expression

TROY, N.Y. — Magnetogenetics — the idea that you can use magnetic fields to control cells and activate cellular pathways — has immense potential in biomanufacturing, medicine, tissue regeneration, and biosensing. Despite its promise, the mechanism behind magnetogenetics remains largely unknown.
