Scientists Uncover Structure of Pores in Cell Nuclei

The structure of pores found in cell nuclei has been uncovered by a UCL-led team of scientists, revealing how they selectively block certain molecules from entering, protecting genetic material and normal cell functions. The discovery could lead to the development of new drugs against viruses that target the cell nucleus and new ways of delivering gene therapies, say the scientists behind the study. [More]
Global Atomic Spectroscopy Market Forecast to Grow at 7.01 CAGR

Global Atomic Spectroscopy Market Forecast to Grow at 7.01 CAGR

Atomic spectroscopy is a technique used to analyze the elemental composition of an analyte by its electromagnetic or mass spectrum. This analysis is conducted with the help of spectral instruments by measuring the radiation intensity as a function of wavelength. The spectral instruments used in atomic spectroscopy are referred to as spectrometers or spectral analyzers. [More]
