Using Computers to Model Antibiotic Resistance

Simulating Multilevel Dynamics of Antimicrobial Resistance in a Membrane Computer Model SUMMARY: This article uses a computer program to model how different factors contribute to the rate of antibiotic resistance in bacteria. The results aren’t predicting anything, they’re just showing the number of possibilities this program can take into account to help give a better… Continue reading Using Computers to Model Antibiotic Resistance

A Cheaper Way to Monitor Phosphoinositide Levels in Cells

A method to control phosphoinositides and to analyze PTEN function in living cells using voltage sensitive phosphatases SUMMARY: This study talks about a new method to measure phosphoinositide levels in cells as well as levels of PTEN enzymes. Phosphoinositides are a type of phospholipids on the cell membrane; their job is to interact with membrane… Continue reading A Cheaper Way to Monitor Phosphoinositide Levels in Cells
