GEN videos are informative, entertaining, and encompass all aspects of biotechnology.
Ph.Diddy at the Conference
Arnold Young (aka the Ph.Diddy) is a biotech Ph.D. candidate. Arnold has adjusted to the ups and downs of life in the lab. With his poster ready, he's now headed for his first scientific conference. Arnold is nervous and excited. He can't wait to meet and mingle with others who share his fascination for science, and maybe grab some freebees at the exhibition booths. April Brite (aka the Ph.Diva) and the PI are also there. Arnold notices the girl at "the poster next door", but does she notice him?
Wyss Human Organs-On-Chips will be on display at The Museum of Modern Art in New York until January 2016. This video shows how the design of the chips allow them to emulate organ–level functions.
Johns Hopkins Researchers Find Caffeine Enhances Memory
For many people, caffeine consumption is the energy boost of choice to wake up or stay up. But researchers at the Johns Hopkins University have found another use for the stimulant: memory enhancer.
Detecting Rare Cancer Cells with Sound Waves
A team of engineers from MIT, Penn State University, and Carnegie Mellon University is developing a novel way to isolate rare circulating tumor cells using sound waves to separate them from blood cells.
3D Heart Simulation
Researchers from the University of Tokyo built a 3D model of the human heart to help predict whether new drugs will cause irregular heartbeats.
DNA: Past to Present
In celebration of DNA Day on April 25, GEN presents this video timeline spanning 150 years of the history of DNA.
Exploring the PI3K/AKT/mTOR Pathway
Novartis Oncology is investigating the PI3K/AKT/mTOR pathway to understand and treat advanced breast cancer.
Improving Brain Plasticity
The Shatz Lab at Stanford developed a decoy drug that allowed mice to form new connections as adults, leading to findings that could eventually help people recover from stroke, forms of blindness and Alzheimer's disease.
Parkinson's Diagnosis by Typing on a Keyboard
MIT researchers show how analyzing people's keystrokes as they type can reveal information about the state of their motor function.
Employing CRISPR Technology in Drug Discovery
CRISPR technology will allow AstraZeneca to identify and validate new drug targets in preclinical models that closely resemble human disease.
Cas9: As a Transcriptional Activator
In this technical animation, Wyss Institute researchers instruct how they engineered a Cas9 protein to create a powerful and robust tool for activating gene expression.
