Harvesting the power of the cell’s own protein degradation mechanisms in drug discovery

Constant production of proteins in living cells is subject to strict quality and concentration control. The ubiquitin-protease system (UPS) is one of the systems responsible for degrading misfolded and damaged proteins. Also, short-lived regulatory proteins that control many critical cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, cell proliferation and differentiation, cell signalling and transcription are degraded by UPS.1

Why haven’t microbial products been more widely adopted by farmers?

This is a question that drives me each day. Microbial products have been around for a long time; starting with rhizobium in legumes, dating back 125 years. Yet, in the United States, rhizobium inoculants have not been widely adopted by soybean farmers – some indicate less than 15% use overall in the United States. Why?

From Consortia to Recombinants: opportunities and challenges facing the next generation of microbials

In this blog post I will discuss two themes that I see driving the next generation of live microbe biologicals for agriculture. These are the rational design and delivery of pairs or consortia (which I will define as more than two microbes) and the commercialization of engineered strains.

How deep learning is transforming medical imaging: image search

Five or six years ago, I was looking for a strategic direction for the KIMIA Lab. We started with the problems. We asked, ‘What problems do we have in medical imaging?’
