Three-dimensional liver organoid represents breakthrough for drug screening and tissue engineering
Professor Seung-Woo Cho, Department of Biotechnology, Yonsei University
Microbial Mercenaries for Plant Disease Resistance Ungrounded
Professor Jihyun F. Kim, Department of Systems Biology
Novel Tumor-Suppressive Signaling Mechanism Identified
A collaborative research team gets closer to the possibility of developing a powerful anticancer. Professor Hyun Woo Park, Biochemistry
Every Gene Has an Island
“Islands” of cytosine-phosphate-guanine repeats in genes are modified differently depending on cell type, leading to cell type-specific gene expression. Professor Young-Joon Kim, Biochemistry, Yonsei University
How Plants Get by When Hungry and in The Dark
A low-resource environment triggers the expression of MRF genes, which help adjust protein synthesis so that plants can survive and recover when conditions improve. Professor Hyun-Sook Pai, Systems Biology
A Novel Method of Active Site Redesign for Amine-based Drug Production
The method developed by a team led by Prof. Jong-Shik Shin is expected to initiate the establishment of a technique for obtaining optically active amines, which was previously impossible using naturally occurring enzymes.
Possible Production of Drought-Resistant Crops Enabled
The gene that acts negatively in plant tolerance responses to drought stress has been identified by the research team led by Professor Woo Taek Kim.
Possibility of Chronic Pain Treatment Opened Up
A protein function that controls the excessive activation of nerve cells has been identified by Professor Eunji Cheong’s team. Professor Eunji Cheong, Biotechnology, Yonsei University
Scientists identify a key protein for regulating immune response
Research reveals a brain development protein plays a critical role in the body’s immune response. Professor Boyoun Park , Systems Biology, Yonsei University
Rub your hands and improve memory – fantasy or reality?
A team of Yonsei biotechnologists and neuroscientists suggests that triboelectricity can be used to convert somatic cells to neurons Professor Seung-Woo Cho, Biotechnology, Yonsei University
