Solving the puzzle of polymer-ice binding for cryopreservation

When biological material is frozen, cryoprotectants are used to prevent ice damage. How do newly emerging polymeric cryoprotectants control ice formation and growth during freezing?



Soil bacteria hormone discovery provides fertile ground for new antibiotics

The discovery of how hormone-like molecules turn on antibiotic production in soil bacteria could unlock the untapped opportunities for medicines that are under our very feet.

An international team of scientists working in the Department of Chemistry, the School of Life Sciences and the Warwick Integrative Synthetic Biology Centre at the University of Warwick, UK, and Monash University, Australia, have determined the molecular basis of a biological mechanism that could enable more efficient and cost-effective production of existing antibiotics, and also allow scientists to uncover new antibiotics in soil bacteria.

It is detailed in a new study published in the journal Nature.
