Plug-and-play diagnostics

[WHOOSH] [MUSIC PLAYING] Researchers at MIT’s Little Devices lab have developed a set of modular blocks that can be put together in different ways to produce diagnostic devices for various functions, such as infection detection and monitoring. These plug-and-play devices are low cost, reliable, re-usable, and require little expertise to assemble. The components consist of…

Viruses: Molecular Hijackers

Viruses: Molecular Hijackers

Hey it’s professor Dave; let’s talk about viruses. We now have a pretty good understanding of what’s going on inside a cell, so we are ready to look at different kinds of unicellular organisms. But before we get to those, let’s take a look at something a bit simpler, a virus. Contrary to popular belief,…

Mitochondrial diseases

Mitochondrial diseases cover a wide range of conditions caused by genetic mutations. In the UK alone, they affect thousands. Mitochondria are the ‘powerhouses’ of the cell. They use a process called ‘oxidative phosphorylation’ to generate energy. But a mitochondrion is a complex piece of machinery, and a lot can go wrong. It takes around 1500…
