• Capsule-Sized Device Permits Noninvasive Exploration Of Small Intestine

    Jun 08 | Bio-IT World | An international team of researchers has completed preliminary testing of a swallowable device for collecting samples from people under standard, day-to-day conditions to better understand what is happening inside their small intestine. The lengthy organ has up to how been inaccessible unless individuals first fasted and were sedated. More
  • Data-Generating AI Platform Conducts Huge Number Of Microbial Experiments

    Jun 07 | Bio-IT World | Bioengineers at the University of Michigan (U-M) have seriously scaled up data collection on bacterial species known to affect human health with robots and an artificial intelligence (AI) system that learns from scratch without the need for big databases of knowledge to train on. Dubbed BacterAI, the platform generates its own data and quickly gets smarter by playing a game doling out reward points for accurately predicting the outcome of an experiment. More
  • Nature-Inspired Orthopedic Implant Coating Kills Bacteria, Monitors Strain

    Jun 06 | Bio-IT World | Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign believe they have come up with an attractive approach to the battle against bacteria that can infect orthopedic implants—as well as the surfaces people encounter in everyday life, smartphone screens and kitchen countertops. The smart surgical implant coating contains no chemicals but was instead inspired by the wings of cicadas and dragonflies that are naturally antibacterial through physical interactions. More
  • ‘The Process Is the Product’ Is No Longer Enough. Now, Data Is the Deliverable

    Jun 01 | Bio-IT World | In biomanufacturing, particularly with respect to advanced therapies such as gene and cell therapies, there is a saying: "the process is the product." That insight is still important, but it's also insufficient. As the industry adapts to increasingly complex manufacturing processes, we'd like to propose a reframe: the data is the deliverable. For personalized medicine to reach its potential, leveraging process data to drive learning will be key. More

Plus new products and deployments from DNA Script, Thermo Fisher, Model N, GenScript, and more. More
  • Bryn Roberts on Data Citizenship, FAIR Culture, Data Models for the Long Term

    May 23 | Bio-IT World | Bryn Roberts has spent thirty years in informatics and data, most recently at Roche and before that at AstraZeneca. Now as Global Head of Data and Analytics at Roche Information Solutions, Roberts applies his career-long learnings to the current era of data in life sciences. More
  • Bio-IT World Community Names Five New ‘Best of Show’ Products

    May 19 | Bio-IT World | Earlier this week during the Bio-IT World Conference & Expo, Bio-IT World named five 2023 Best of Show Awards winners including new products from Data Cicada, Genomenon, GitHub, Monomer Bio, and Starfish Storage. More
  • New Antimicrobial Susceptibility Test Suggests Generic Z-Pak Can Cure Superbugs

    May 18 | Bio-IT World | A new antimicrobial susceptibility testing (AST) method developed by scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara, resolves the longstanding conflict between what the gold-standard assay says will work and actual patient outcomes when it comes to selecting antibiotics. The alternative AST protocol reveals that antibiotics already widely available on the market can cure superbugs. More
  • Variation In The Gut Highlights Human Individuality

    May 16 | Bio-IT World | Anatomical investigations performed on 45 individuals who donated their bodies to science have revealed that the human gut is stunningly diverse based on the size of the organs making up the gastrointestinal (GI) system. Whether those differences are based on what people eat, where they live, or their ancestry is anyone’s guess. More
