The world's first "synthetic embryo": Why this research is more important than you think

The world’s first “synthetic embryo”: Why this research is more important than you think

In a world first, biologists have grown mouse embryo models in the laboratory without the need for fertilized eggs, embryos, or even a mouse—just using stem cells and a special incubator. This achievement, published in the journal Cell by a team led by researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, is a very …

New method to promote biofilm formation and increase the efficiency of biocatalysis

New method to promote biofilm formation and increase the efficiency of biocatalysis

Newswise – Scientists from Birmingham have unveiled a new method to increase efficiency in biocatalysis in a paper published today materials horizons. Biocatalysis uses enzymes, cells, or microbes to catalyze chemical reactions and is used in settings such as the food and chemical industries to produce products that are inaccessible through chemical synthesis. It can …
