An eye on Flow Cytometry Bioinformatics.

Being a bioinformatician graduated in Cell Biology, I am actually very interested in the merge of experimental biology and bioinformatics, and in finding a good theoretical framework to project effective computational solutions. Interdisciplinary research is getting to be more and more mandatory to tackle biomedical and industrially- relevant problems. That is why this article, dating 2013, … Continue reading An eye on Flow Cytometry Bioinformatics.

DIY microscopy: smartphone and LEGOs for Cell Biology

Stay geek, love biology. This is the very simple philosophy I adopted since I was a freshman, and it is turning out really useful. I really wish to all of you in research to get proper funding for your projects, and to enjoy DIY as a funny and brainy activity. But, if you are out … Continue reading DIY microscopy: smartphone and LEGOs for Cell Biology

Science, a new quality-control pathway in the nuclear inner membrane.

Just a quick post to report a truly amazing paper published on Science just few days ago. The protein production line in cells involves a quality-control system, associated to the ER, dedicated to the elimination of misfolded proteins, and defined as ER-associated protein degradation (ERAD). The ER holds a specific subdomain in the proximity of the nucleus, the … Continue reading Science, a new quality-control pathway in the nuclear inner membrane.
