Human stem cells converted to functional lung cells
Science Daily (press release)
The study was published today in the journal Nature Biotechnology.
sanad's insight:

Human stem cells are extremely helpful and in this case the scientists used stem cells to make lung and airway cells. stem cells are undifferentiated cells that can differentiate into specialized cells, such as heart, liver, lung, kidney, brain, etc... Making stem cells into lung cells is extremely important because lung transplants are really tough to operate and have high chance of death. Stem cell transplants are the new revoluiton of medicine and surgery. this article is worth the time to read especially if your interested in biotechnology and medicine. I chose this article because i am very interested in science and finding cures for disease, and stem cell research is the futre of disease curing and keeping people alive.

sanad's insight:

Scancell research is a great invention to grow out different body parts and cells without having a donation from a millions of human being. In the university of wisconsin is developing a scancell platform called cymerus. Cymerus is a scancell platform designed to create billions of human stem cells from only one donor, it will also be really important in the therapeutic application of stem cells in diseases. Cymerus may have the potential to help cure a  range of diseases including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes diseases of the blood, lung, kidney, eyes and immune system diseases. I chose this topic because i am really interested scientific research and this article helped me learn and understand more about scancell research and what it does.

GMOs – look to the future
Great Bend Tribune
Biotechnology has the ability to revolutionize medicine as well as agriculture. Already there have been significant medical breakthroughs.
sanad's insight:

GMO's are genetically modified foods that will have the potential to increase the world’s food output in the next years without causing hazards or problems for the environment. By the year 2050 the estimated food production by farmers would be enough to feed 9 billion people and end world hunger. Some scientists are trying to decline GMO's because they believe that it is unnatural even though it presents no danger to the environment. The field of biotechnology has the opportunity to revolutionize medicine and agriculture. I selected this topic because GMO's are part of the biotechnology studies and I am interested in studying biotechnology. This article is very useful to understand the importance of GMO's as well as biotechnology.
