The study provided a level of detail not available even five years ago. Improved technology cut the time to analyze all the proteins in a yeast sample from four hours to one hour.
The findings are important as yeasts are critical to many industries — brewing, fermenting other foods, making drugs like human insulin, and producing new biofuels.
The company makes cutting-edge products based on discoveries by three UW scientists for delivering DNA and RNA into cells.
The explosion in next-generation sequencing has opened windows throughout medicine and biology.
Carroll was instrumental in building the field of evolutionary developmental biology, known colloquially as evo devo.
The mushroom nicknamed "death cap" made headlines this summer when it poisoned Syrian refugees fleeing through Eastern Europe.
Abbott, Gellman and a group of University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers have provided new insights on hydrophobic interactions within complex systems. In a study published today in the journal Nature, the researchers show how the nearby presence of polar (water-attracted, or hydrophilic) substances can change the way the nonpolar hydrophobic groups want to stick to each other.
