In vivo dissection of extracellular vesicles production in plants

In the last decade, the number of studies isolating and describing extracellular vesicles (EVs) has dramatically grown once their participation in intercellular communication has been confirmed. As transporters of bioactive molecules, EVs can take part in different

Limitations in nanoelectronics: current and temperature effects

Electrical cables are commonly used in our daily life. Typically they have metallic core covered with isolation. For example, one uses this wire to connect a lamp to a battery. When connected, electrons (negative elementary electric charges)

Data storage – Quo vadis?

The amount of digital data created by mankind is increasing exponentially. Big companies have evolved addressing the need to store and manage such data masses. Google, Microsoft, and others are challenged to save several petabytes (1 PB

Exploiting an ‘Achilles heel’ of DNA replication to arrest viral proliferation

In order to proliferate all organisms need to replicate their genomes. In most, this is achieved by a process named DNA replication by which a parental DNA gives rise to two faithful copies of itself. For this

A new type of mycovirus

Virus infects Aspergillus fumigatus, the fungus that can cause the human disease aspergillosis Researchers, led by Dr Robert Coutts, Leverhulme Research Fellow from the School of Life and Medical Sciences at the University of Hertfordshire, and Dr

A study to establishing the structural integrity of core−shell nanoparticles

Lanthanide – doped core – shell nanoparticles, such as NaYF4:Yb/Er@NaYF4, have attracted increasing attention for applications in photonics, photovoltaics, and biological imaging and therapeutics. When compared to conventional nanoparticles that suffer from extensive and uncontrollable dopant −
