New Imaging Tool Advances Study of Lipid Biology

From fruit flies to humans, there are many, many different types and subtypes of lipids operating at the same time within any living organism. While we know that lipid molecules play myriad different roles in health, aging and disease; researchers currently struggle to uncover the fine details of these roles – details which could unlock cures, extend the human healthspan, and solve mysteries of aging. A study led by bioengineers at the University of California San Diego marks a significant step forward in this critical area of lipid research. Full Story

Detecting Pathogens--and Sepsis--Faster and More Accurately by Melting DNA

A new analysis method can detect pathogens in blood samples faster and more accurately than blood cultures, which are the current state of the art for infection diagnosis. The new method, called digital DNA melting analysis, can produce results in under six hours, whereas culture typically requires 15 hours to several days, depending on the pathogen.    Full Story
