A Code by Any Other Name
Advances in next generation sequencing technologies, particularly RNA-seq, have revealed an unexpectedly large extent of human genome transcription, estimated between 60-90%, and propelled the rapidly growing field of transcriptomics. Since protein-coding genes account for less than 3% of the human genome (numbering about 20,000, or half that of Oryza sativa (rice), and about the same […]More Info
Toxic Relationships with Heavy Metals
Chlorinated organic solvents, manufactured in large quantities and widely used in industry for degreasing fats and resins, are among the most prevalent organic pollutants that contaminate groundwater and subsurface soils. Spills and leakages of these compounds in areas with heavy metal contamination have caused difficult to eradicate toxic sites since heavy metals can interfere with […]More Info

Live cell imaging allows real time measurements while maintaining the delicate balances and intricate complexity of the cell. Further, sufficient data sampling using quantitative single cell imaging addresses inaccuracies produced by averaging data from cell populations that may be heterogeneous (perhaps with subpopulations displaying opposing characteristics and behavior) and allows the exclusion of outliers.

The MDPI Magazine will highlight scientific papers selected in collaboration with the editors of MDPI journals in the life sciences. The aim of this online-only magazine is to raise awareness of articles chosen for their interest to a wide scientific audience, and to stimulate open and interactive dialogues on their content.
