CRISPR diversifies: Cut, paste, on, off, and now– evolve!

Innovative Genomics Institute

Scientists at the Innovative Genomics Institute have concocted a transformative new way to harness the power of evolution. Today in Nature, researchers at UC Berkeley describe yet another creative application for CRISPR: a platform to spur evolution of specific genes inside cells. Their inventive new system, “EvolvR,” lets scientists shake up the DNA letters in their gene of choice until they find the variation that’s just right. The technology opens up countless possibilities, like engineering yeast that efficiently turn waste into biofuels, or developing new human therapeutics.

Innovative Technique Converts White Fat to Brown Fat

Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science

Increasing healthy brown fat might help weight management and reduce symptoms of diabetes. Columbia Engineers have developed a simple, innovative method to directly convert white fat to brown fat outside the body and then reimplant it in a patient. The technique uses fat-grafting procedures commonly performed by plastic surgeons, in which fat is harvested from under the skin and then retransplanted into the same patient for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes.

Feeding Plants to This Algae Could Fuel Your Car

Los Alamos National Laboratory

The research shows that a freshwater production strain of microalgae, Auxenochlorella protothecoides, is capable of directly degrading and utilizing non-food plant substrates, such as switchgrass, for improved cell growth and lipid productivity, useful for boosting the algae’s potential value as a biofuel.

Smart Bandages Designed to Monitor and Tailor Treatment for Chronic Wounds

Tufts University

A “smart” bandage is designed to monitor the condition of chronic wounds and deliver drug treatments to improve chances of healing. While the bandages remain to be assessed in a clinical context, the research is aimed at transforming bandaging from a passive to an active treatment paradigm.

The Immune System: Cracking Open the Black Box

American Technion Society

A technology developed at Israel's Technion will provide the scientific community with novel tools to gain a comprehensive understanding of immune system activity. Based on millions of scientific publications, the technology uses artificial intelligence to map disease immune profiles. These maps, which have already identified previously unknown biological interactions, will enable development of personalized, immuno-centric therapies
