Lights, camera, CRISPR: Biologists use gene editing to store movies in DNA

Dhaka 22nd July, 2017. Internet users have a variety of format options in which to store their movies, and biologists have now joined the party. Researchers have used the microbial immune system CRISPR–Cas to encode a movie into the genome of the bacterium Escherichia coli. The technical achievement, reported on 12 July in Nature1, is a step towards crea

Attack of the Parasitic Plant (Cuscuta)

GNOBB would like to share a very interesting video on parasitic plants shared by GNOBB member Saima Shahid who is a Ph.D. candidate at the Pennsylvania State University, USA. This video is about a parasitic plant Cuscuta pentagona (dodder). It lives by forming connection via haustoria (a slender projection from root) to host plants. The time lapse video of dodder interac

An article on “Effect of aging on stem cells” by Dr. Abu Shufian Ishtiaq Ahmed et al.

As we all know recently one of the major research focuses is aging and it is among the greatest known risk factors for most human diseases. Around 150,000 people who die each day across the globe, about two thirds die from age related causes. There is increasing evidence that the aging process can have adverse effects on stem cells. As stem cells age, their renewal ability deteriora
