Researchers make chicken cells resist bird flu by snipping out a tiny bit of their DNA

There’s still a long way to go before we have a full chicken, though.

Researchers figure out how coffee can boost (some) solar cells

Oh great, more competition for my morning coffee.

What is hyaluronic acid

Let’s take a look at this pretty unique substance which permeates our bodies.

Bees use a small number of neurons to count, and they’re one of the best counters we know

They’re so cute and fuzzy, too <3.

Stem-cell-laden skin grafts could heal burn victims 30% faster, if not quicker

“Our goal is no death, no scar, and no pain,” adds Marc Jeschke, paper co-author. “With this approach we come closer to no death and no scar.”

Pancreatic cells can naturally morph to combat diabetes, pointing to new avenues of treatment

Other cells can likely do it too, the researchers believe.

What the season of fall – and science – teaches us about life and death

Life goes on after death.

Artificial bacteria-killing cells could win the war against drug resistance

As the cells are much more robust and self-sufficient than previous ‘models’, they can be employed even in less-than-ideal or changing conditions.

Amazing video shows how white blood cells find pathogens — and points to a cure against cancer

So pretty tho!

Denying cancer cells one key amino acid might destroy treatment-resistant tumors

Attack the enemy where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected.

Mock lunar dust kills cultured cells, alters DNA — raising concerns about the real thing’s toxicity

Dust 2.no.

Newly-developed 3D printing method uses cells, biomolecules to recreate tissues

The day when you can download and 3D print a sandwich inch ever closer.

The difference between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells

Big differences hide in tiny things.

New therapy rejuvenates old cells in the lab, which now behave like young cells

Shortly after the therapy, the aged cells started dividing and had longer telomeres.

Immortal cells could usher in the age of plentiful, artificial blood for transfusions

Your body probably won’t even tell the difference.

If stem cells don’t grow as you want them to, just add a dash of parsley-husk scaffolding

To be fair it works with other plants too, but I was shooting for a culinary title.

Cells nudge each other with proteins when moving to keep your body in one piece

Knowing how cells coordinate could let us improve healing speeds and fight cancers.

Finnish appliance grows crops from cells in under a week

This is a berry exciting device.

We’ve found the genetic key to making red blood cells

Researchers from Lund University in Sweden and the Center of Regenerative Medicine in Barcelona have identified four sequences of genetic code that can reprogram mice skin cells to produce red blood cells. If this method can be used on human tissues, it would provide a reliable source of blood for transfusions and people with anemia.

This protein might be the key to developing the fabled slim-pill — that actually works

An international team has discovered that by inhibiting Gq protein production in adipose tissue, cells can be re-purposed from storing fat to burning it.
