New analytical technique helps researchers spot subtle differences in subcellular chemistry

  • By Beth Hart

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign can now rapidly isolate and chemically characterize individual organelles within cells. The new technique tests the limits of analytical chemistry and rapidly reveals the chemical composition of organelles that control biological growth, development and disease. The findings of the new study, led by Carle Illinois College of Medicine and chemistry professor Jonathan Sweedler, are published in the journal Nature Methods. The new approach locates and isolates […]
