The traditional techniques of standard microscopy and flow cytometry have been the stalwart of cell analysis for many years. But times have changed?scientific breakthroughs, grant applications, and publications wait for no one?and there are now a host of new technologies that complement these traditional modalities. With the advent of automation and high-throughput technologies, researchers no longer need to spend hours in a darkroom to capture a simple fluorescent image, painstakingly measuring cell parameters one cell at a time, or risk losing precious samples due to mechanical issues. Our panelists will explain how applying the latest cutting-edge technologies, such as high-content analysis and superresolution microscopy, as well as other advances in flow cytometry and microscopy, can lead to new discoveries while saving time and making your lab more efficient and productive.
Where do the world's scientists migrate? Have those patterns changed over the decades? An analysis by Science of the world's largest public repository of scientific CVs brings this population's wanderings into focus. The data come from ORCID, the nonprofit organization that assigns unique identity codes to researchers. It wasn't intended as a massive longitudinal survey of human migration, but with 3 million profiles and growing, ORCID is becoming just that. So far, 25% of the people on ORCID have added personal information to their public ORCID profiles, including the years, locations, and descriptions of their education and employment. The analysis by Science debuts a data set that is shaping up as a vital tool for charting the flow of the world's knowledge producers.
From tissue culture to final analysis, cell culture is a group of techniques used in the majority of life science laboratories. There are numerous standard methodologies, but many of the techniques used are continuously changing and evolving. From cell preparation and growth to final analysis, the cell culture workflow encompasses many areas of expertise, making it difficult for a researcher to be an authority in all of them. Properly optimizing workflows and utilizing the latest best practices are the keys to obtaining consistent results and advancing scientific research. Join this webinar to learn the latest tips and tricks of the trade from the experts.
The eyes may be the windows to the soul, but a window into the bone?specifically bone marrow?would be useful for studying bone development and disease. Greenbaum et al . developed a method of whole-bone optical clearing, using a series of reagents under continuous flow to delipidate and decalcify bone tissue. This process renders the entire bone transparent but does not affect endogenous fluorescence, making this compatible with reporter mice. Using light sheet fluorescence microscopy, the authors counted and mapped the number of fluorescently labeled osteoprogenitors within cleared mouse tibia, vertebral column, and femur bones treated with sclerostin antibody. With reduced variability compared to standard section analysis, this Bone CLARITY and computational analysis will be a useful tool for bone research.
by Angela Guess According to a recent press release, ?Science progresses when researchers build on prior work to extend, test, and apply theories. Aggregating the quantitative findings from prior research ? meta-analysis ? plays a significant role in advancing science, however current techniques have limitations. They assume prior studies share similar substantive factors and designs, ?
Although the Ebola virus sporadically causes outbreaks in humans, there is a relative paucity of information regarding the dynamics of the immune response in patients. During the recent outbreak, a health care worker with severe Ebola virus disease was evacuated to the NIH Clinical Center, where he received supportive care and had longitudinal blood samples drawn up to almost a year after infection. Kash et al . performed transcriptomic analyses on these blood samples to see how his body responded to the virus through the different phases of infection and recovery, and compared them to clinical symptoms and viral loads. These valuable data provide insights into Ebola pathogenesis and could help guide future treatments.
Although male infertility is as common as female infertility, it often goes undiagnosed because of socioeconomic factors such as stigma, high cost of testing, and availability of laboratory facilities. To facilitate the necessary testing, Kanakasabapathy et al . have designed a smartphone-based assay that can be performed at home or in a remote clinic without access to laboratory equipment. The assay uses an inexpensive device that attaches directly to a phone and is operated through a smartphone application. The accuracy of this approach was very similar to that of computer-assisted laboratory analysis, even when it was performed by untrained users with no clinical background, demonstrating its potential for use at home and in low-resource settings.
