Defining Standards for Genomes From Uncultivated Microorganisms

CaliperCoverZosiaRostomianBerkeleyLab.jpg

In Nature Biotechnology, an international team led by DOE Joint Genome Institute researchers has developed standards for the minimum metadata to be supplied with single amplified genomes (SAGs) and metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) submitted to public databases.

2017 Massry Prize Honors Microbiome Research Pioneers

knight_rob_massry.jpg

Microbiome researchers Rob Knight, PhD, University of California San Diego, Jeffrey Gordon, MD, Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, and Norman Pace, PhD, University of Colorado Boulder, will share this year’s Massry Prize, splitting the $200,000 honorarium. These researchers lead a field that works to produce a detailed understanding of microbiomes andand methods for manipulating them for the benefit of human and environmental health.

Tracing the Path of Parkinson’s Disease Proteins

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have developed a set of tools to observe, monitor and quantify how misfolded proteins associated with Parkinson’s disease enter neurons in laboratory cultures and what happens to them once they’re inside.

Bioprinted Veins Reveal New Drug Diffusion Details

A new advance, published this week in the journal Biomicrofluidics, now offers the ability to construct vascularized tissue and mimic in vivo drug administration in 3-D bioprinted liver tissue. A truly international collaboration, with researchers affiliated with Chile, Italy, Saudi Arabia, Korea and the U.S., developed this relatively simple liver model to offer a more accurate system for drug toxicity testing.
