Unsung Trailblazers: Illuminating the Long Shadow of Racial and Gender Biases on Minority Female Leadership
In the recent Scientific Reports paper, we investigate two centuries of enduring intersectional challenges and biases faced by Black female leaders. Through an extensive behavioural data science analysis, we reveal fresh perspectives on barriers impeding the progress of minority female leadership.
UBS-seq: An ultrafast bisulfite sequencing method more accurately detecting 5-methylcytosine in DNA and RNA
Current bisulfite sequencing (BS-seq) suffers from notable limitations such as long reaction time, severe DNA damage, overestimation of modification level etc. UBS-seq overcomes these limitations and detects 5-methylcytosine in DNA and RNA accurately starting from low input biological samples.
Light-induced hydrophilicity of TiO2 and ZnO surfaces rely on the same physics and involve excitation of electron-hole pairs. Here, we propose and test a model for the photo wetting of TiO2 and ZnO thin films. The results suggest design rules for materials exhibiting photocatalytic wetting.
CRISPR-Cas-based identification of a sialylated Human Milk Oligosaccharides utilization cluster in the infant gut commensal Bacteroides dorei
In the pursuit of carbon-negative pathways for future biosynthesis, researchers are engaged in deconstructing natural pathways into modular components and reassembling them akin to assembling LEGO blocks. This work serves as an inspiration, highlighting the diversity inherent in natural enzymes.
Creating the next generation of protein sequence reference libraries for marine microbial eukaryotes
The Marine Functional Eukaryotic Reference Taxa (MarFERReT) project is an up-to-date protein sequence reference library designed for flexible and adaptive use and re-use in marine microbial eukaryotic research.
