Technological innovation is not just about digital disruption, faster computers and killer apps loved by the masses. Biotechnology is driving new waves of medical innovations, agricultural innovations and new food technologies.  ...

A team of researchers led by Oregon Health and Science University genetically repaired embryos containing a hereditary heart problem. Injecting the CRISPR-Cas9 enzyme at the exact moment of fertilisation yielded 42 out of 58 edited embryos which did not bear the MYBPC3 hypertrophic cardiomyopathy mutation present...

Super Glue is great, even for surgical applications, but it’s toxic and doesn’t work so well when the surface is wet. The Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard looks at what works in nature and applies biomimicry to replicate solutions for people. Lead researcher Jianyu...

Plenty’s vertical indoor farms, which can produce crops at yields 530 times greater than that of a typical field, has landed US$200 million in seed funding from Japan's SoftBank Vision Fund. Chief executive Matt Barnard calls the veggies “super organics” because there are no pesticides or...

Using a fat-removing and fluorescent “cocktail”, researchers at University of Tokyo have perfected a technique that allows individual cancer cells to be viewed inside a “transparent” mouse. Using 3D in vivo bioluminescence, researchers say they hope to extend their technique to digital biopsies. Read more: Cell Reports...
