Re-inventing drug discovery by targeting biomolecular condensates

We gained exponential growth in technology over the past few decades, but the field of drug discovery has remained relatively stagnant. There is a need for re-inventing the drug discovery process with disruptive innovations. The term “disruptive innovation” first coined by Clayton M. Christensen in 1995, describes the innovations that significantly affect the way aContinue reading “Re-inventing drug discovery by targeting biomolecular condensates”

Biological Condensates: video

Biological condensates or bio-condensates or protein droplets are membrane-less organelles formed as a result of proteins liquid liquid phase separation or demixing. It is important phenomenon which was recently discovered and now not only considered important for normal biological functions but also linked to pathological conditions like neurodegenerative diseases and cancer. Considering importance of this natural phenomenon, I have compiled list of sources providing video/movie of formation of biological condensates or describing this phenomenon in detail.
