    • A Nobel for Autophagy: High Content Screening is Essential to Understanding this Cell Recycling Mechanism

    • Although the concept of autophagy — the process for degrading and recycling cellular components — has been around since the 1960s, a deeper understanding of this cellular mechanism wasn’t realized until Yoshinori Ohsumi  began experimenting with yeast to identify the genes involved in autophagy, beginning in the 1990s. His discoveries won him the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, announced this past October.Ohsumi’s work “led to a new paradigm in our understanding of how the cell recycles its content,” the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet, which ...
