Smart Label Spots Spoilage Before It Happens

A bite of bad yogurt or sip of spoiled milk could be a thing of the past thanks to a new sensor developed by Clarkson University Professor Silvana Andreescu. The innovative “smart label” is a low-cost, portable, paper-based sensor that can determine when food or cosmetics spoil.

When Ancient Fossil DNA Isn’t Available, Ancient Glycans May Help Trace Human Evolution

allia_bay_excavation.jpg

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and collaborators discovered a new kind of glycan (sugar chain) that survives even in a 4 million-year-old animal fossil from Kenya, under conditions where ancient DNA does not. While ancient hominin fossils are not yet available for glycan analysis, this proof-of-concept study, published September 11 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, sets the stage for unprecedented explorations of human origins and diet.
