Team describes rapid, sensitive test for HIV mutations

RNA reconnaissance:
Brown University researchers have developed a method for detecting single nucleotide mutations directly in the RNA of HIV, including mutations that make it resistant to some drugs. In lab tests, the single-step system performed more quickly and with better sensitivity than standard technologies.

New optoelectronic probe enables communication with neural microcircuits

Stimulate and record:
The burgeoning field of optogenetics makes it possible for scientists to control brain activity using pulses of light. Now, Brown University researchers have developed an optoelectronic device which opens the possibility of bidirectional communication with the brain — stimulating neural microcircuits while while monitoring changes in neural activity.
