The Biomimicry Manual
'Biomimicry' is a way of designing that asks "How would nature do it?".
The Genetic Science Learning Center at The University of Utah is a nationally and internationally-recognized education program that translates science and health for non-experts. In addition to genetics, we address all areas of life science and health as well as other scientific fields.
DNA from the Beginning
An animated primer of 75 experiments that made modern genetics. The Science behind each concept is explained by animation, image gallery, video interviews , biographies and links.
What is Nano?
Nano is all around us - in nature and in technology.
'Bionic spinal cord' aims ...
Australian scientists hope a device about the size of a matchstick will one day help people with spinal cord injuries get back on their feet.
This Wearable Made From ...
Diabetics may soon be able to trade their blood glucose meters and insulin injectors for a wearable device. A team of international scientists -- led by Dae-Hyeong Kim from the Institute for Basic Science in Seoul -- developed a stretchable patch that can monitor blood glucose levels and deliver medication when necessary.
This 3D bioprinter can ...
This 3D bioprinter can make human-sized ear, muscle, and bone tissues. For the first time, scientists have produced 3D-printed structures made of living cells that are big enough and strong enough to replace human tissues.
Man has 3D-printed vertebrae implanted in world-first surgery.
New York City's Community Biolab
Discover more about DNA, genes and genomes, and the implications for our health and society.
Gene Technology - CSIRO
Gene technology provides the opportunity to improve human and animal health, create a safer and more sustainable food supply, and generate prosperity for Australia. Discover how gene technology impacts our lives and the research CSIRO is undertaking in this field.
The Genographic Project
National Geographic’s Genographic Project has used advanced DNA analysis and worked with indigenous communities to help answer fundamental questions about where humans originated and how we came to populate the Earth. Now, cutting-edge technology is enabling us to shine a powerful new light on our collective past.
Human Genome Project
During the Human Genome Project, this website served as the primary electronic information source for HGP researchers and the public. It is now a unique archive—a repository for historical documents detailing the history of the HGP from the project's beginnings in 1989 until it was completed in 2003.
Could Wood Feed the World?
The main ingredient of wood, cellulose, is one of the most abundant organic compounds on Earth and a dream source of renewable fuel. Now, bioengineers suggest that it could feed the hungry as well. In a new study, researchers have found a way to turn cellulose into starch, the most common carbohydrate in the human diet.
What is cloning?
What is cloning? Do clones ever occur naturally? What are the types of artificial cloning? What sort of cloning research is going on at NHGRI?
New Genetic Genetic Engineering Tech
GMO regulation—insofar it exists in the US—relies on old statutes for plant pests, animal drugs, and pesticides repurposed for GM technology. The rules never worked well, and new, precise gene-editing techniques are stretching them to the breaking point.
Articles about genetic engineering from NPR.
From a Pink Squiggle to the ...
This Yellowstone bacterium sparked PCR, one of the great advances in genetics.
A simple guide to CRISPR
If you haven’t heard of CRISPR yet, the short explanation goes like this: In the past four years, scientists have figured out how to exploit a quirk in the immune systems of bacteria to edit genes in other organisms — plant genes, mouse genes, even human genes. With CRISPR, they can now make these edits quickly and cheaply, in days rather than weeks or months.
In search for cures, scientists create embryos that are both animal and human.
Glow In The Dark Bunnies
What do you get when you cross jelly fish DNA with a cuddly bunny? If researchers from universities in Hawaii and Turkey have anything to say about it, the combination could result in cheaper, more effective drugs for genetic diseases.
Rare Find of 'Blood' in Mammoth
Russian scientists claimed Wednesday they have discovered blood in the carcass of a woolly mammoth, adding that the rare find could boost their chances of cloning the prehistoric animal.
Fertility Breakthrough Could ...
A MAJOR breakthrough in infertility treatment by Australian researchers could mean a cheaper and much less invasive alternative to in-vitro fertilisation (IVF) could be made available to women who are struggling to become pregnant.
Full Genetic Screening of Embryos
First baby born after full genetic screening of embryos. Connor, a healthy baby boy, has made history. He is the first child to be born after his parents had the entire genomes of a batch of their IVF embryos screened for abnormalities, with the intention of picking the healthiest for implantation.
Super-Intelligent Humans Are Coming
Genetic engineering will one day create the smartest humans who have ever lived.
