Design of "Japonica Array" - a SNP Array Optimized for the Japanese Population
2-September-2015

Researchers in Japan have designed the first ever single nucleotide polymorphism array that has been optimized for the Japanese population. This basic analysis tool can be used for studying the genes related to the physical constitution and diseases that are peculiar to the Japanese.

Revealing the Mechanism for Sustaining Biological Rhythms
1-September-2015

Researchers from Korea and US have constructed a biological circuit that spans two genetically engineered strains of bacteria, one serves as an activator and the other as a repressor to regulate gene expression across multiple cell types, and found that the circuit generates surprisingly robust rhythms under various conditions.

Manipulating the Rotational Direction of Artificial Molecular Motors Using Supramolecules
1-September-2015

A research group in Japan has fabricated molecular motors on a metal substrate using supramolecules, and successfully reversed rotation of molecular motors by rearranging bonding between molecules that constitute a supramolecule.
