Research aims to capture, interrogate single cancer cells

submitted by: mdanderson
http://www.mdanderson.org/newsroom/news-releases/2012/project-to-capture... Nicholas Navin, Ph.D., of MD Anderson's Genetics Department, has a plan to sort out the genetic differences among individual tumor cells at different stages of cancer development, then analyze and compare their active mutations. The results should track the evolution of triple-negative breast cancer from initial tumor, to circulating tumor cell to metastatic cell. This new approach, funded by the Damon Runyon...

Science Nation - 3D Proteins - Getting the Big Picture

submitted by: nsf
Proteins are the workhorses of cells. With support from the National Science Foundation, University of Arkansas biochemist James Hinton has been researching their structure and function for decades. Back in the 1990's, he had a vision to study these huge protein structures in 3D and now, in cooperation with a company called Virtalis, his vision has become a reality. The new system allows researchers to enlarge the visual of a protein to room-size, so they can examine it from all angles, to...

SCIENCE OF THE WINTER OLYMPICS: OLYMPICS MOTION

submitted by: nsf

The Olympics are a unique chance to marvel at the physical abilities of these world-class athletes. But what makes them unique? After all, they're made of the same flesh and blood as the rest of us--how did they become Olympians? Dan Fletcher, an associate professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, Berkeley has some answers.
