A decline in gene discoveries
The rate of discovery of human gene functions has fallen significantly
Drug resistance in the hot seat
Thermal stress elicits genomic changes that can make cancer cells resistant to chemotherapy
New stem cell antibody targets cancer
An antibody that targets a protein on the surface of stem cells also targets the same protein on some cancer cells
Ten things A*STAR researchers revealed in 2018
As we look forward to the rest of 2019, let us look at some of the amazing things A*STAR researchers unearthed in 2018.
Better imaging leads to more precise surgery
A new imaging method could reduce the number of repeat operations for breast cancer
Acne's possible new roots in growing glands and undigested collagen
A link between acne, gland growth and poor collagen remodeling brings scientists in Singapore closer to an effective treatment.
An algorithm to rule them all
A powerful machine-learning technique enables biologists to analyze enormous data sets
A tip for future nanoscale sensing
The tiny diamond pyramid tips used for atomic force microscopy may also prove to be highly useful for nanoscale, quantum sensing
Virtually reality: future factories run by digital twins
A*STAR has built a testbed for digital twins, the virtual counterparts of real manufacturing equipment. These factory innovations could help companies save huge amounts of time and money by predicting and adjusting for their partner machine’s condition on the go.
