New Way to Image Single Molecules in ‘True Colour’

2015 21 Aug

A Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) team has invented a new technology to image single molecules with unprecedented spectral and spatial resolution, thus leading to the first "true-colour" super-resolution microscope. By delivering both spatial and spectral information for each molecule, this imaging technique enables new ways to... Read more

Improved Ultrasound Imaging Enables Tumour Visualisation

2014 18 Feb

An innovative new technique developed by UNC researchers could enable doctors to visualise tumours without using radiation in a more cost effective way.Compared to X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs, ultrasound not only provides an alternative which is less expensive, but more importantly, it is a radiation-free technology for detecting and monitoring cancer....

25 Years of Computer Progress Benefit DNA Study

2014 07 Jan

In the cell nucleus, DNA carries out its activities in a diluted state where it synthesises proteins and, despite resembling a messy tangle of thread, its structure is in actually governed by precise rules that are important for it to carry out its functions. Customarily, biologists have studied DNA by observing it experimentally with a number of techniques....

Tumour Promoting Gene Discovered

2013 09 Dec

More than one per cent of all cancer patients carry a gene which drives the development of tumours, and it is the first time ever that researchers have identified the gene CUX1 to be widely linked to cancer development.According to the team of researchers, deactivating CUX1 activates a biological pathway that enhances tumour growth. Drugs inhibiting... Read more
