    Olink Proteomics announces the availability of three new biomarker panels to further explore the complexities of the human proteome

    Olink Proteomics today announced the launch of three new precision proteomics panels, significantly expanding its library of high quality human protein biomarker assays, from 460 to over 700. This series of new panels is designed to enable scientists to extend their discovery capabilities for studying the plasma proteome by casting a broader net.

    The cell of origin in childhood brain tumours affects susceptibility to therapy

    Children that are diagnosed with the severe the brain tumour malignant glioma often have a very poor prognosis. New findings from Uppsala University show that in mice glioma development and glioma cell properties are affected by both age and the cell type from which the tumour has arisen. The tumour cell of origin was also important for the susceptibility of the tumour cells towards cancer drugs.

    Tadpoles turn to vegetarian diets under heat waves

    Of the many ecological questions unfolded by climate change, the potential influence of temperature on the feeding preferences of organisms is currently gathering a great deal of attention in the scientific community. In a new study, published in the journal Ecology, researchers show that three species of tadpoles generally increased herbivory under simulated heat wave scenarios.
