The Mitochondria are the power stations of every cell in our body, turning the food we eat into energy

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, life extension

Unfortunately, as we age they begin to breakdown due to damage.

MitoSENS project aims to reverse that damage with the goal of preventing age-related ill health. In their first study, they managed to show that allotopic expression of two mtDNA genes from the nucleus could bring back several functions in a patient cell line.

MitoSENS team is currently running a crowdfunding campaign on Lifespan.io to collect money for the next crucial step of this project. Scientists want to investigate if functional backup copies of mitochondrial DNA genes in the nucleus can replace their mutated counterparts in live animals, and if this could rescue mitochondrial function.

Posted by in categories: food, neuroscience, sustainability

Customers can trim branches for $35 a pound or cut down the whole plant (like a Christmas tree) for $25 a pound. In a video of the field’s grand opening, a customer buys a 15-pound plant for almost $400.

Now, Future Meat Technologies has raised $14 million in new financing to build its first pilot manufacturing facilities to bring the cost of production of a cell-made steak down to $10 per pound — or $4 if the meat is combined with plant-based meat substitutes.

If we want to colonize Mars, we’re going to need to figure out a way to feed ourselves there, and continuously sending food to the Red Planet isn’t a sustainable plan.

But now, a team of researchers thinks it’s figured out a way to produce enough food on Mars to feed a million people — and they say their plan to make Martian colonists self-sufficient would take just a hundred years to implement.
