Monash University's Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI) researchers have created the first high-resolution structure depicting a crucial part of the 'superbug' Pseudomonas aeruginosa, classified by the WHO as having the highest level threat to human health. Show More Summary
(PureCircle) For the first time, scientists have completed the sequencing of the stevia plant genome. Lead scientists from PureCircle Stevia Institute and KeyGene have unveiled this major breakthrough in research showing the annotated, high-quality genome sequences of three stevia cultivars.
(Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research) A team of scientists led by Whitehead Institute has uncovered a surprising molecular link that connects how cells regulate growth with how they sense and make available the nutrients required for growth. The researchers' findings also implicate a new protein, SLC38A9, as a potential drug target in pancreatic cancer.
(Babraham Institute) A collaboration between Babraham Institute scientists and AstraZeneca provides new insights into the role of PTEN, a major cancer gene, in controlling cell growth and behaviour. PTEN is the second most commonly altered gene in human cancers, particularly prostate cancers, and this work could help to develop and target new treatments.
(Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona)) This new knowledge may be key to the early detection of patients who would benefit from zoledronic acid and those who should be spared, and it may accelerate the administration of the first preventive treatment of metastasis.
