This episode: A cancer-killing virus could help increase success of treatment of a form of eye cancer in children!
This episode: Enhancing a virus with magnetic nanoparticles and CRISPR-Cas gene editing abilities makes it a good vector for genetic therapies!
This episode: Purple phototrophic bacteria could use certain kinds of wastewater, along with electric current, to produce valuable products like hydrogen without much waste!
This episode: Bacteria rid themselves of burdensome waste by ejecting it inside little pieces of their own cell, called minicells!
This episode: Engineering other organisms to fix nitrogen by combining the required enzyme components into giant proteins that then get cut into the regular-sized subunit components!
This episode: Combining all 16 of yeast’s chromosomes into one or two only impairs their growth slightly in the lab, but it prevents them from successful mating with wild yeasts!
This episode: Combining cells with light-absorbing nanomaterials can help tumor-targeting bacteria produce more anticancer compound!
