A patient on dialysis has just received a one-of-a-kind blood vessel.
Hannah Warren is the youngest person to ever receive a trachea made from stem cells.
Rat families worldwide rejoice. Humans still stuck on the waiting list.
Medical technology is advancing rapidly thanks to computers, but it's taking a while for all that nifty computerized medicine to make its way inside our bodies. Humans aren't generally compatible with electronics, but that may change with the invention of...
Rather than belabor the point that the rest of the Internet is wrong to call this artificially bioengineered construct a "jellyfish" as opposed to a "sea jelly," we're just going to get straight to the heart of it: it can swim, and it's powered by heart muscle cells harvested from rats.
These blobs are Mycoplasma genitalium, a bacterial parasite which lives in your naughty bits and makes it burn when you pee. Scientists at Stanford and the J. Craig Venter Institute have honored this monster by making it the first complete organism to have its entire genome modeled inside a computer program.
Wanna shoot lasers out of your eyeballs? We're getting close: scientists have finally done something useful for a change and stuck some glowing jellyfish genes into human cells and created living green biolasers.
Scientists in Japan have accidentally mutated all the squeak out of this cute little mouse, and it now tweets like a bird instead, which could be the beginnings of a simple language....
You probably have about a hundred trillion different microorganisms living in your gut right now, which is ten times the number of cells in your body. These microorganisms help keep you alive, but researchers have figured out how to get them to store your porn collection at the same time.
Researchers at the University of Columbia have figured out how to get rabbits to regrow damaged bones with artificial implants. The implants are more like scaffolds, which acted as blueprints for healing. The hope is that tech could be used to help humans to the same.
