Nanotechnology Enables 3D Visualization of Crucial RNA Structures at Near-Atomic Resolution

[ad_1] This illustration is inspired by the Paleolithic rock painting in the Lascaux cave, signifying the acronym of our method, ROCK. Figuratively, the patterns of the rock art in the background (brown) are the 2D projections of the engineered dimeric construct of the Tetrahymena group I intron, while the main object in the front (blue) […]

Fighting Viruses Is As Easy as Breathing

[ad_1] The Human Alveolus Chip contains hollow side channels that allow suction to be applied to the chips, applying cyclic strain that mimics the motions of normal human breathing (left). A permeable membrane separates human alevolus cells in the upper channel from human blood vessel cells in the lower channel, allowing them to exchange molecular […]
