What Is The Fundamental Unit Of Cell Size In Bacteria, Study Finds

It's been known by everyone that nutrients are associated with the growth of bacteria and their cell division. Scientists from UC San Diego found in their recent study that how bacteria cell divides when there is veery few amount of nutrients available.

Flexing Some Muscle—How Onions May Be The Next Endeavor in Biomedical Engineering

While it may sound silly, it turns out onion tweezers may turn out to be the next endeavor in the study of biomedical engineering. And while this root vegetable is known to pack a pungent smell, it turns out that its epidermal cells pack quite a punch too—enough to even inspire artificial muscle formation. Okay, so this one needs a bit more explaining.

Oxygen May Boost Immune Cells Fighting Cancer

Researchers might have discovered another new weapon in the fight against cancer -- oxygen. In a new study in mice. researchers found that something as simple as breathing in extra oxygen might give immune cells the boost they need to attack cancer cells in the body.

Google’s Magic Pill Will Search Out Cancer—Or Is It the Nanoparticles?

In a day and age where nearly every problem is solvable with the help of the trusty internet and fast-powered search engines, why wouldn’t we expect some help in the health department, much more clinical than what we can find on WebMD? It’s a sector many companies have not been able to explore, but with the support and funding of the world’s largest search engine, researchers at Google are aiming to diagnose cancers, strokes and even a heart attack through tiny technology you can track on a wristwatch.
Watch: Lattice Light-Sheet Microscope Shows Cells Like Never Before

New Microscope Shows Cells Like Never Before [Video]

Scientist Eric Betzig just won't quit. Weeks after being awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry for developing new techniques for enhancing microscopic viewing technology, he has apparently moved on to another breakthrough of equal or greater significance.

How A Parasite Became a Power House—The Tale of Mitochondria

Through the use of simple components, sugar, oxygen and transfer molecules, the mitochondria are able to create and store energy through the simple movement of electrons from one bond to another. And in spite of conflicting theories describing their possible origins, a new study at the University of Virginia is proving that the energy creators weren’t always self-sustaining components.
