A recent study found that bacteria may have numerous applications that could help researchers create new developments and solutions regarding bacteria.
Scientists have created a new tool that could potentially help create "fuel" crops for clean, renewable bioenergy--an assay that allows scientists to identify and characterize the function of nucleotide sugar transporters.
Morphing materials, which are materials that can change their shape based on environmental conditions, may just be the future for bioengineering. Now, researchers have developed a new composite material that can change its shape when heated and then changes back when cooled.
A Stanford University bioengineer has helped develop a technology that can tweak the control systems that regulate the inner workings of cells, pointing the way toward future medical interventions that could switch off diseased states or turn on healthy processes.
Researchers of the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of ETH Zurich were able to measure the speed of neuronal signal conduction along segments of single axons in neuronal cultures by using a high-resolution electrical method. The bioengineers are now searching for plausible explanatio...
