Designer life using synthetic biology

Posted on 21. February, 2015.

Look anywhere on land or in the oceans and you will find a multitude of living creatures – plants and animals of all shapes and sizes – roughly 8.7 million eukaryotic species, give or take a million or so.

Then look closer, because most life is invisible to the human eye. A light microscope will reveal the bacteria; an electron microscope, the viruses. These organisms are everywhere.

Seabird embryos as biomonitors of micronucleogenic genotoxic agents: potential application for the coasts of Mexico

Posted on 19. February, 2015.

A genotoxic agent is a compound that has the potential to alter genetic material, either directly or by activating toxic metabolic mechanisms. These agents include a great variety of elements and chemical compounds, such as heavy metals, pesticides and petroleum derivatives

Efficient, one-pot synthesis of polyfunctionalised octahydroquinazolin-2,5-diones catalysed by Fe3O4 nanoparticles

Posted on 12. February, 2015.

In recent years, multi-component reactions (MCRs) have been developed as economic methods for the synthesis of important medical and industrial compounds. MCRs are convergent reactions, in which three or more starting materials react to form a product, where basically all or most of the atoms are retained. They have become important procedures for the synthesis of structurally complex compounds in addition to drug-like molecules.

Effect of the gas-phase reaction on hydrogen microcombustion in a Pt/γ-Al2O3 catalytic plane channel with detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms

Posted on 11. February, 2015.

Micro-combustors are emerging as a powerful tool for the portable production of energy. The combustion-based micro-power generation systems may eventually replace environmentally non-benign and expensive lithium batteries in many devices due to the high energy density of hydrocarbon fuels (40 for hydrocarbon fuels versus 0.5 MJ kg-1 for lithium batteries).

Free Review - The determinants of lifespan in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans: a short primer

Posted on 24. January, 2015.

The excitement generated by the study of the genetic determinants of lifespan in the soil-dwelling nematode Caenorhabditis elegans is not surprising: success in this field underlines that fact that the age dependent decline of any organism is subject to change through genetic manipulation or other interventions; lifespan is a phenotype like any other.
