'Omics' research is based on non-targeted investigations that provide a holistic view of the molecules present in a cell, tissue or organism and how they change in response to environmental stimuli. The different branches of 'omics' research each focuses on a specific of cell components.
Researchers in China have uncovered the proteins used by the brain to balance excitation and inhibition, so that functions such as moving a leg (excitation) can be stopped (inhibition).
Data science is a marriage between statistical science and informatics, using statistical principals of math and logic on huge volumes of data.
New research conducted by physicians at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center has revealed a dramatic increase in torticollis and plagiocephaly in infants exposed to opioid medications in utero.
New research suggests that consuming 100% fruit juice does not significantly affect fasting blood insulin, fasting blood glucose, or insulin resistance. Fruit juice represents a good supplement for whole fruit to help people add more nutrition to their diets.
A new study has found that prebiotics (small and indigestible fiber molecules that promote the growth of good bacteria in the gut of babies), can improve memory and exploratory behavior when added to infant formula.

Optogenetics is the science of using light to control the behavior of cells. It is one of the most rapidly evolving fields of applied research. Optogenetic techniques enable the control of electrically excitable cells such as muscle or nerve cells.
Chagas disease is a parasitic infection caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi. It is most often transmitted by nocturnal, blood-sucking insects called kissing bugs. When the kissing bug feeds, it defecates, and the sleeping victim unconsciously scratches the bite scene and introduces the infected feces into their blood stream.
Mental health, as with any other aspects of health, can be affected by a range of socioeconomic factors that need to be addressed through comprehensive strategies involving access to preventions, treatments and facilitating recovery as well as raising awareness.

It is important to select the proper camera for fluorescence microscopy which has high sensitivity and low noise, to avoid photo bleaching your sample. A monochrome camera is also preferred for fluorescence imaging because it does not have a color filter pattern superimposed over the image sensor. Since the microscope’s filter wheel selects which wavelength makes its way to the sensor, a monochrome camera allows equal signal detection on all pixels and increases the overall sensitivity of the camera.
