ubc

Canadian researchers have pinpointed a new gene associated with peanut allergy, offering further evidence that genes play a role in the development of food allergies and opening the door to future research, improved diagnostics and new treatment options. The gene, called c11orf30/EMSY (EMSY), is already known to play a role in other allergy-related conditions, such […]

Clients in the News – Molecular Robots Work at the Nanoscale

Robots have just gotten much, much smaller. Scientists from Caltech have created an autonomous molecular machine at the nanoscale—made of a single strand of DNA— that can autonomously ‘walk’ around a surface, pick up certain molecules and drop them off in designated locations. “Just like electromechanical robots are sent off to faraway places, like Mars, […]
