New tools to manipulate biology

In ACS Central Science, three independent research groups from UNIGE and one from UNIBAS reports advances in both how proteins are made and how you can see their expression patterns in live animals.

A new way of fighting bacteria?

Microbiologists at the UNIGE, studied the toxin-antitoxin system HigBA, which can be found in many pathogenic and non-pathogenic bacteria, and found a novel regulatory mechanism with potential implications on how to fight bacterial infection.

A new method to detect cholesterol

A research team from the UNIGE / NCCR Chemical Biology, in collaboration with the Universities of California and Helsinki, has created a natural cholesterol that can be detected in the body.
