    Single-Stranded DNA and RNA Origami With Potential for Drug Delivery

    A collaborative team from the Wyss Institute, Arizona State University, and Autodesk designed single-stranded DNA and RNA origami The genetic material in organism i.e. DNA and RNA are used as a raw material to make a drug delivery vehicles which can be used for the production of pharmaceuticals and chemicals. Nanotechnologists are making efforts to form microscopic device like tiny…

    Scientists Reveal How Cells ‘Take Out the Trash’

    A new structural study shows exactly how cells take out the trash. Using a high-resolution imaging technique called cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have revealed how cells degrade damaged or misfolded proteins in mitochondria—cellular compartments that serve as the “powerhouses” of the cell. Protein degradation is constantly occurring in cells, and is essential to all…
