Low doses of alcohol may help clean the brain

BRAIN RESEARCH – Low levels of alcohol consumption can tamp down inflammation in the brain and help clear away toxins, including those associated with Alzheimer’s disease. This shows a new study conducted in mice, which appears in the journal Scientific Reports. It is harmful for the body to consume large doses of alcohol over a longer period of… Read More »

CRISPR gene-editing systems 3D animation

The CRISPR systems visualization project was created by Visual Science biologists and scientific visualization experts with support from the Skoltech Biotechnology faculty. The animation is based on molecular modeling and dynamics, which allowed us to produce accurate models of natural and engineered CRISPR complexes, as well as to visualize the interiors of the bacterial cell and human cell nuclei. The visualization demonstrates both natural (bacterial) and genetically-engineered CRISPR… Read More »
