One of the major revolutions taking place in healthcare is the rise of personalized medicine, which is the practice of using genomic and other molecular analyses to tailor medical treatments to a patient's individual biology. Personalized...Show More Summary
The new moonshot project from Google is to create a Google Maps of the human body including molecular and genomic information as well. The Personal Genome Project (PGP) had a similar mission years ago, but this one seems to be even bigger. The 175 healthy people will go through an exam that includes the collection […]

The Bubble Nebula or NGC 7635 is 10 light-year diameter object a mere 11,000 light-years away toward the constellation Cassiopeia near a giant molecular cloud which contains the expansion of the bubble. Above and right of the Bubble's center is...
Did you know that, from the air, the arrangement and structure of Boston's buildings, and the positioning of those buildings relative to one another, looks a lot like the molecular structure of an "amorphous liquid"? Seattle and L.A. do, too. Chicago, with its rigid grid system, apparently looks like glass. Read more...

The routine use of a molecular testing panel increases the likelihood of performing the correct initial surgery for thyroid cancer patients by 30 percent, researchers report. "Before this test, about one in five potential thyroid cancer cases couldn't be diagnosed without an operation to remove a portion of the thyroid," said the lead author.
Molecular analysis helps scientists discover and describe a tiny new species of narrow-mouthed frog from the genus Chiasmocleis. The news species, Chiasmocleis quilombola is named after the quilombos -- communities constituted by and used as refuges for slaves who had the brevity to escape in colonial Brazil.
PITTSBURGH -- The routine use of a molecular testing panel developed at UPMC greatly increases the likelihood of performing the correct initial surgery for patients with thyroid nodules and cancer, report researchers from the University...Show More Summary
Google has embarked on what may be its most ambitious and difficult science project ever: a quest inside the human body. Called Baseline Study, the project will collect anonymous genetic and molecular information from 175 people—and later thousands more—to create what the company hopes will be the fullest picture of what a healthy human being...

Google's got a big new project and it's you. Well, not just you, but a genetic and molecular study of humanity that aims to grasp at what a healthy human should be. It's in its early days, collecting anonymous data from 175 people, but it plans to...
In the fly Drosophila melanogaster, p53 is activated in certain cells to adapt the metabolic response to nutrient deprivation, thus having a global effect on the organism, researchers show. The researchers also reveal the molecular mechanisms through which the activity of p53 is regulated. Show More Summary
NY Times: No major new type of antibiotic has been developed since the late 1980s, according to the W.H.O. From 2011 to 2013, the Food and Drug Administration approved only three new molecular entities to combat bacterial diseases — the lowest rate since the 1940s. “No sane company will develop the next antibiotic,” said Michael […]

I’ve taken a bit of a break for the last few years. In that time, I’ve finished my PhD in molecular biology and I’ve started a post-doctoral fellowship. I’m very glad to be back with Persephone and to be answering your science questions! Today, I’m going to talk about carbon-14 dating. Prior to researching this process, I had not really considered...
