In a typical poultry processing facility, much of the waste is simply dumped in a landfill or incinerated. Two experimental new processes, however, make use of the feathers, blood and bones – plus one of them may ironically reduce the number of chickens slaughtered.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: Nanyang Technological University, Lab grown meat, Waste, Recycling, Chicken
Chopping down trees and processing the wood isn’t the most efficient or environmentally friendly way to make furniture or building materials. Scientists at MIT have now made breakthroughs in a process that could one day let us 3D print and grow wood directly into the shape of furniture and other objects.Continue ReadingCategory: Materials, ScienceTags: Wood, Plants, 3D Printing, 3-D+Printing, MIT
In what is being described as a world-first, scientists in Israel have reportedly grown spinal cord implants utilizing tissue extracted from human volunteers. Those implants were then used to restore full walking abilities to previously paralyzed mice.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Tel Aviv University, Spinal, Paralysis, Implant, Injuries, Stem Cells, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cel
There has been a lot of activity in the world of cultured meat since we reported on a US$330,000 lab-grown burger back in 2013, as scientists and startups work to bring the price down to something resembling the real deal. Making inroads in this space is Israeli startup Future Meats, which has just received the largest investment ever in the cultured meat industry and is rapidly reducing the prod
Lab-grown mini-organs are advancing at an incredible rate, opening up new ways for scientists to model biology, diseases and new treatments. In a new study, scientists have created the most advanced stomach organoids so far, composed of three cell types which allows them to contract and produce acid.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: organoid, Stem Cells, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cel
Earlier this year, we heard how two separate groups had developed the world's first lab-grown rib-eye steak and Waygu beef. Israeli startup MeaTech 3D is now joining their ranks, with a "cultivated steak" of its own.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: 3D bioprinting, Lab grown meat
As the world's population continues to grow, so does the strain we place on the environment in our efforts to feed all those hungry mouths, and part of the solution may lie in the lab. We've seen how lab-grown meats like rib-eye steaks, burgers or chicken tenders could help address the massive environmental costs associated with livestock production, and we're now seeing some interesting possibil
To help us crack the complex puzzle that is our own brains, scientists have been growing miniature versions in the lab. Now, a team in Singapore has made a major breakthrough by growing mini-brains with the pathological features of Parkinson’s disease for the first time, potentially paving the way towards better treatments.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Parkinson's Disease,
Researchers have made a striking breakthrough in lab-grown mini organs. Using induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), the team induced brain organoids to develop rudimentary eye structures that can sense light and send signals to the rest of the brain.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: organoid, Brain, Eye, Vision, Stem Cells, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPS), New Atlas Audio
Science fiction has long floated the idea of a device that can produce any kind of object one can imagine. Star Trek called it a replicator, while other writers have referred to it as a Santa Claus Machine.Continue ReadingCategory: TechnologyTags: Lab grown meat, Clean meat, Food technology, Wood, Blood, organoid is a social bookmarking place where you can share, find & discuss the best news around on most topics.
