Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have developed a new approach to alter the function of RNA in living cells by designing molecules that recognize and disable RNA targets. As a proof of principle, in the new study the team designed a molecule that disabled the RNA causing myotonic dystrophy.

Most people think about an infectious disease like the flu only when it knocks them flat. Or they worry about a deadly virus like Ebola after it shows up in the headlines. But scientists at the University of Florida’s Emerging Pathogens Institute are always anticipating the next possible epidemic, tracking viruses and bacteria that can trigger a fast-moving chain of infection. Then the team at EPI tries to stop them. ..Read More ⇒Friday, February 05, 2016
For the first time since 1905, the Momotombo volcano in Nicaragua erupted in December 2015. The eruption began on Dec. 1. A team of USF researchers made it to the volcano on Dec. 6, and on Dec. 7, it exploded in front of them. These researchers are currently monitoring the recently active volcano using radar equipment and lava flow models. ..Read More ⇒Friday, February 05, 2016
