Bioengineering is a technology that applies engineering to various aspects of biology. It aims to analyze, modify, and control biological systems in order to design and create products that can replace, augment, or sustain biological, chemical or mechanical processes (e.g. prosthetics, and implants).
Nano-bombs filled with lauric acid can become a possible treatment to selectively target bacteria causing acne
Sticky is good. A University of California, San Diego bioengineer is the first author on an article in the journal Science that provides insights on the "stickiness of life."
University of Washington (UW) researchers have succeeded in engineering human tissue patches free of some problems that have stymied stem-cell repair for damaged hearts.
Over the last 20 years, the sequencing of the human genome, along with related organisms, has represented one of the largest scientific endeavors in the history of humankind.
Bioinformatics researchers from UC San Diego just moved closer to unlocking the mystery of how human cells switch from "proliferation mode" to "specialization mode."
A novel electronic sensor array for more rapid, accurate and cost-efficient testing of DNA for disease diagnosis and biological research has been developed by scientists at Singapore's Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology.
