    Top-Down Approach

    Biomedical scientists make counterfeit organelles to control biological function in cells

    Biomedical engineers at Duke University have shown a way of controlling the phase separation of an emerging class of proteins to create artificial membrane-less organelles in human cells. The progress, similar to controlling how vinegar forms droplets within oil, creates chances for engineering artificial structures to modulate present cell functions or produce entirely new behaviours
