Researchers uncover protein-based “cancer signature”

A research team at the University of Basel’s Biozentrum has investigated the expression of ribosomal proteins in a wide range of human tissues including tumors and discovered a cancer type specific signature. This “cancer signature” could potentially be used to predict the progression of the disease. This research was supported by a Transition Postdoc Fellowship.

Chemists Create Clusters of Organelles by Mimicking Nature

Scientists from the University of Basel have succeeded in organizing spherical compartments into clusters mimicking the way natural organelles would create complex structures. They managed to connect the synthetic compartments by creating bridges made of DNA between them. This represents an important step towards the realization of so-called molecular factories. The journal Nano Letters has published their results.
This research was supported by the RTD Project CINA.
