  • Discovery of the biophysical molecular mechanism of thermal adaptation in bacteria

    21 March, 2014

    IBR researchers explain how a thermo sensor protein converts the ambient temperature in an intracellular signal and its projection in health and biotechnology . What is the modus operandi of protein thermo sensor ? How do you convert a physical signal as the temperature in a chemical signal ? Scientists tried to answer these questions, […]

  • Biological sensors of toxic metals

    4 December, 2013

    A group of the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology of Rosario (IBR- CONICET- UNR) led by Dr. Fernando Soncini, developed biosensors that can detect toxic heavy metals in drinking water and industrial effluents, technology that was created from a modified bacteria that turn green when they encounter these metals. Dr. Susana Checa, associate laboratory […]

  • MicroRNA: mechanism that allows plants to be larger and healthier

    7 November, 2013
