Quantum physics meets genetic engineering

Nature has had billions of years to perfect photosynthesis, which directly or indirectly supports virtually all life on Earth. In that time, the process...

Genetic variation is key to fighting viruses

Using a genome-wide association study, EPFL scientists have identified subtle genetic changes that can cause substantial differences to how we fight viral infections.When infected...

HIV: researchers find that ‘biomarkers’ can predict virus remission in patients

HIV researchers say new analysis of patient data could help to shed light on the phenomenon known as ‘post-treatment control’, where the virus remains...

Videos reveal how HIV spreads in real time

How retroviruses like HIV spread in their hosts had been unknown — until a Yale team devised a way to watch it actually happen...

New test detects all viruses that infect people, animals

A new test detects virtually any virus that infects people and animals, according to research at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis,...

Viruses join fight against harmful bacteria

In the hunt for new ways to kill harmful bacteria, scientists have turned to a natural predator: viruses that infect bacteria. By tweaking the...

Targeting DNA

MIT biological engineers have developed a modular system of proteins that can detect a particular DNA sequence in a cell and then trigger a...

Stanford team re-engineers virus to deliver therapies to cells

Researchers stripped a virus of its infectious machinery and turned its benign core into a delivery vehicle that can target sick cells while leaving...

An Antibody That Can Attack HIV in New Ways

Broadly neutralizing antibodies to HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein are being evaluated as therapeutics to prevent or treat HIV-1 infection. Structural analysis of one such antibody,...

Global Team Seeks Individual X-ray Portraits of Active Viruses, Bacteria and...

A major international collaboration launched by the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is laying the technical groundwork for taking individual, atomic-scale portraits...

Stem cell gene therapy developed at UCLA holds promise for eliminating...

Scientists at the UCLA Eli and Edythe Broad Center of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Research are one step closer to engineering a tool that could...

Purdue researchers successfully target ‘Achilles’ heel’ of MERS virus

A Purdue University-led team of researchers studying the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome, or MERS, have found molecules that shut down the activity of an...

Gene Therapy Prevents Parkinson’s Disease in Animal Model, Says Pitt Study

Gene therapy to reduce production of a brain protein successfully prevented development of Parkinson’s disease in an animal study, according to researchers at the University...

Giant Virus Revealed in 3-D Using X-ray Laser

For the first time, researchers have produced a 3-D image revealing part of the inner structure of an intact, infectious virus, using a unique...

Unlocking the Key to Immunological Memory in Bacteria

High Stakes Science Pays Off

Whether caring for Ebola patients, chasing neutrinos deep underground, synthesizing the poliovirus or downgrading weapon-grade uranium, scientists often face high stakes. Yet, despite the...

Genetically Engineered Antibodies Show Enhanced HIV-Fighting Abilities

  Capitalizing on a new insight into HIV's strategy for evading antibodies—proteins produced by the immune system to identify and wipe out invading objects such...
