Here’s a great video tip from LabTricks.
Please note that this video is unaffilated with Bio-Rad Laboratories.
Magician David Blaine explains his research into oxygen deprivation and how this background knowledge helped him hold his breath for over 17 minutes. Scientists take note of David’s dedication. This is one of the most riveting TEDMED talks I have ever seen!!!
An international consortium of scientists has produced the first systematic network map of interactions that occur between proteins in the plant Arabidopsis thaliana.
Known as an “interactome,” the new Arabidopsis network map defines 6,205 protein-to-protein Arabidopsis interactions involving 2,774 individual proteins. By itself, this map doubles the volume of data on protein interactions in plants that is currently available.
The Consortium’s new network map of Arabidopsis has already provided the foundation for new discoveries involving plant growth and disease resistance.

Watch-Breaking the Code: Sequencing the Arabidopsis Genome. This video was released in December 2000, when Arabidopsis was first sequenced.
In a previous post we told you how how Dr. Anthony Atala’s lab at Wake Forest Institute uses a “printer” to print organs such as kidneys from cultured cells. Although the machine shown in that post “prints” cells into organs, the apparatus itself is far from a traditional printer.
However, Dr. Atala’s lab DOES have an actual inket printer which they have modified to print skin cells onto a 3-D scaffold which is currently being used by the US armed forces to treat severe burn victims.
When my friends saw this video they thought it was science fiction. However, as a molecular and cell biologist, I can actually appreciate the video and it is totally out of the realm of science fiction for me.
However, the 3-D printer shown below is unbelievably awesome! Isn’t it funny how our perspective changes depending on where we’ve come from!
or how about this?!?
