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.
