Unravelling the secrets of the cell with suspended microchannel resonators

Unravelling the secrets of the cell with suspended microchannel resonators

Researchers can learn much about the properties of many materials simply by weighing them. In cell biology, repeatedly measuring the mass of a cell reveals how fast the cell grows. However, this is very challenging: the mass of a single-cell is extremely difficult to measure with enough accuracy and without perturbing the cell. The laboratory of Dr Scott Manalis at […]

Using metabolomics and artificial intelligence to explore the universe of the dark metabolome

Using metabolomics and artificial intelligence to explore the universe of the dark metabolome

Professor David Wishart, University of Alberta, is a member of Canada’s national metabolomics laboratory and leads the Human Metabolome Project. His work aims to identify and catalogue metabolites in human tissues, biofluids and the surrounding environment. He has developed a software package called BioTransformer, which is a chemical prediction tool to explore the mysterious dark metabolome. The program combines artificial […]
