RNA sequencing reveals microRNA-like RNAs in fungi
A. oligospora can develop adhesive networks (AN) to capture nematodes. Fungi are the most common cause of diseases in crops and other plants, and pose major threats to humans and other animals. The successful treatment of fungal diseases is difficult partly because the mechanisms for fungal pathogenesis remain largely unknown as well as that fungi are ...

New discovery transforms conventional microfluidics into open-space microfluidics
Microfluidics refers to the manipulation of fluids in microscale devices. Commonly called "labs on a chip," microfluidic systems are used to study and analyze very small-scale chemical or biological samples, replacing the extremely expensive and cumbersome instruments used for traditional biological analyses.

Triple negative breast cancer develop resistance to chemotherapy by turning on molecular pathway
Researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have discovered that triple negative breast cancer cells can develop resistance to frontline, or neoadjuvant, chemotherapy not by acquiring permanent adaptations, but rather transiently turning on molecular pathways that protect the cells.
