A scientist has devised a standard protocol for measuring distances in biomolecules. Architects cannot build a house without the proper dimensions of the foundation. Likewise, scientists cannot develop targeted drug therapies without first measuring the surfaces of biomolecules such as proteins, RNA or DNA. The study was published in Nature Methods.
Healthcare organizations can play a key role in supporting unemployed patients find a job, suggests a new study from the Centre for Urban Health Solutions (C-UHS) of St. Michael's Hospital.
A new study suggests that eating bread, pasta, and cereal may actually help prevent type 2 diabetes, as long as those foods are made from whole grains.
