The biomanufacturing platform uses bursting bacteria and a shrinking capsule to produce targeted proteins
JBEI enzyme discovery enables first-time microbial production of an aromatic biofuel
Anticancer compound becomes more soluble and selective after glucose is attached
What causes drooling in the first place, and why do we only sometimes salivate?
For years, researchers have worked to develop novel molecules for therapeutic or research purposes, and have relied on directed evolution as a powerful technique for generating molecules that exhibit the properties they want.
Salk scientists have uncovered a missing step in how cells make a class of compounds that include commercially important drugs and flavor molecules.
A new technique allows researchers to activate proteins in the brain by shining an LED light on them.
The Institute for Chemical Biology will draw students and faculty from across Stanford to drive innovation and discovery in biomedical science and train a new generation of "physician-scientist-engineers."
