Using glowing yeast to keep food safe

Dioxins and dioxin-like chemicals (DLCs) are a problematic group of pollutants that come from both natural and man-made origins. They do not easily break down on their own, which means that once they are present in an

Reliable molecular imaging of bioluminescence and NIR fluorescence in vivo

In vivo molecular imaging is a powerful tool for non-invasive analysis of cellular and molecular mechanisms. Whole-body optical imaging of small animals is now widely used in preclinical research to explore disease mechanisms, evaluate drug candidates, and

Making drug discovery more efficient: predicting drug side effects in early screening efforts

Drug research and development is a complex and expensive process that begins with initial screening steps of candidate chemical compounds. Compounds that appear to have the desired potency against a specific cellular target or pathway are further
