If microbial life exists elsewhere in the solar system, wouldn't we like to actually see it on the move? Bioengineers are already testing a new scope—in extreme environments a bit closer to home—that could capture the 3D videos to make that possible.

Elizabeth Hong, a new assistant professor of neuroscience at Caltech, studies olfaction—or smell—to understand how the brain processes sensory information and how that information guides behaviors.

Bruce Hay's lab has developed a way to bring about long-term infertility in mice. The new approach, called vectored contraception, turns muscle cells into factories that produce an antibody that inhibits a key reproductive process.

New faculty member Betty Hong is part of a team of researchers that will use new NSF funding to create synthetic odor stimuli that mimic those found in nature, to help them study how the brain processes and reacts to smells.

The key to any healthy relationship is communication. Two types of microbes near the ocean floor use direct electron transfer to coordinate their symbiotic relationship—which results in the consumption of large amounts of methane from deep ocean vents.

Broadly neutralizing antibodies (bNAbs) are thought to be the future for treating and preventing HIV infections. A bNAb recently characterized by Caltech researchers can neutralize HIV in different states—increasing the antibody's promise as a therapeutic.

Using computational and experimental methods, researchers at Caltech have developed a technique for creating so-called protein–DNA nanowires—a hybrid biomaterial that could have important applications.

A team led by Caltech's André Hoelz has solved the architecture of the nuclear pore complex's complicated inner ring, a subcomplex that is central to the cellular machine's function. In the process, they disproved many previously held ideas about how the inner ring works.
