Naturally, mammals can only reproduce sexually – which has its upsides of course, but it makes us a little less adaptable than other species that can do things by themselves. In investigating why that's the case, Chinese researchers have successfully managed to breed healthy mice with genetic material from two mothers, using stem cells and gene editing...

Discoveries of potentially life-saving peptides in the venom of deadly animals are, counter-intuitively, not all that rare. Scorpions, rattlesnakes and funnel-web spiders have all provided scientists with promising building blocks for next-generation medicines, and a dangerous Australian arachnid has again reared its head with a compound in its venom found to be a potent killer of melanoma
Researchers from the Mayo Clinic have identified a new target in the battle against dementia and age-related cognitive decline – zombie cells. More formally known as senescent cells, these are cells that have stopped dividing but don't die, and tend to accumulate with age. The new research reveals that many pathological signs of neurodegenerative disease can be eliminated by removing these
Extremely addictive and prone to being abused, cocaine is one of the most dangerous illicit drugs out there. Now, researchers at the University of Chicago have developed a novel form of treatment that could help cut back on a person's desire for the drug and reduce its damaging effects in the body. The method involves removing a small patch of skin, introducing genes that produce cocaine-d
†œIt took one year -- a little bit less than one year -- and we switched it from a totally different [game] to this action platformer," says designer Sébastien Bénard in this Dead Cells dev rumination. ...
While Volkswagen is keeping things focused on all things California (and Grand California) at this year's Düsseldorf Caravan Salon, the other big name in German vans will be showcasing a bit of everything. Mercedes-Benz will bring some of the latest trends in automotive technology over to the camper van side, highlighting fuel cell power and connected convenience in a trio of concept campe
Join us for a conversation with one of the brains behind Dead Cells starting at 12PM EDT. ...
Motion Twin game designer Sebastien Benard took some time to break down the fine design details of Dead Cells over on the Gamasutra Twitch channel. ...
Spinal injuries can be like downed power lines – even if everything on either side of the injury is perfectly functional, the break can effectively shut down the whole system. Now, researchers at the University of Minnesota have designed a device that could link everything back together again. A silicone guide, covered in 3D-printed neuronal stem cells, can be implanted into the injury sit
Although it's a very well-studied disease, there's still no cure for cystic fibrosis. But we may be a step closer to finding new treatments, as two research teams are now reporting the discovery of a new type of cell in the airways. These rare cells seem to be where most activity of a certain gene is located, mutations of which are known to cause cystic fibrosis...
