Tuneable Genetic Oscillators Could be Key to Optimisation of Cellular Output

Tuneable Genetic Oscillators Could be Key to Optimisation of Cellular Output Accurate temporal control of biological processes is of primary importance across all kingdoms of life and is often realized through genetic ‘‘clocks,’’ i.e., transcriptional networks with periodic gene expression. Heart beats, cell cycles, circadian rhythms, developmental processes, and energy metabolism are all, in one […]

Scientists Come Up with “Infinitely” Recyclable Plastic Polymer

Scientists Come Up with “Infinitely” Recyclable Plastic Polymer The development of chemically recyclable polymers offers a solution to the end-of-use issue of polymeric materials and provides a closed-loop approach toward a circular materials economy. However, polymers that can be easily and selectively depolymerized back to monomers typically require low-temperature polymerization methods and also lack physical […]
