Research in Chemical Biology and Metabolomics at MIT aims to discover small molecules and chemical modifications of macromolecules that regulate metabolism, cell signaling, and homeostasis and to model aspects of cellular metabolism.
The substance that bathes tumors in the body is quite different from the medium used to grow cancer cells in the lab, biologists report.
New 3-D imaging technique can reveal, much more quickly than other methods, how neurons connect throughout the brain.
Researchers develop a method to investigate how bacteria respond to starvation and to identify which proteins bind to the "magic spot" - ppGpp.

New discovery suggest that all life may share a common design principle.
New finding suggests differences in how humans and bacteria control production of DNA's building blocks.
Using a state-of-the-art type of electron microscopy, an MIT-led team has discovered the structure of an enzyme that is crucial for maintaining an adequate supply of DNA building blocks in human cells.
