How Does a Single Somatic Cell Become a Whole Plant?
  • G. Vogel
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Science
  • 1 July 2005
Some plants are able to create new embryos from single somatic cells, although plant scientists understand little about what actually controls the process. The search for answers might shed light onExpand
New blood tests for antibodies could show true scale of coronavirus pandemic
How many COVID-19 cases have gone undetected? And are those who had mild cases of the disease—perhaps so mild they dismissed it as a cold or allergies—immune to new infections? If so, they could slowExpand
EMERGING DISEASES. A race to explain Brazil's spike in birth defects.

  • Science
  • 8 January 2016
TLDR
Scientists are hoping to use stem cell models of the developing human brain to understand how the Zika virus might affect fetal growth and warn that countries across the Americas should be prepared for a similar wave of birth defects in coming months. Expand
Where have all the insects gone?
  • G. Vogel
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Science
  • 12 May 2017

A Seismic Shift for Stem Cell Research
The development of pluripotent cells from individual skin cells has opened up a new world of research, but scientists say they still need to work with embryonic stem cells.
Ready or Not? Human ES Cells Head Toward the Clinic
At least one company says it is almost ready to try using human embryonic stem cells in patients. But several hurdles remain.

New Brain Cells Prompt New Theory of Depression
  • G. Vogel
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • Science
  • 13 October 2000
TLDR
The recent discovery that the brain keeps producing neurons into adulthood has given this highly speculative theory at least one leg to stand on: that depression may be caused by a lack of new cell growth in the brain. Expand
