A 'culinary ethnographic investigation': How a U of T student tracked the journey of the Lanzhou noodle

"Bong, bong, bong!"   

Andy Liu, a fourth-year history student at the University of Toronto, recalls going into the Magic Noodle restaurant for dinner one night and being met by that loud sound, made by a chef smashing dough onto a board.

Then he got to thinking about what he was eating – the authenticity of the food and the history behind it.

Cells are like Jenga: U of T study sheds light on how genes work together to keep cells healthy

To understand how cells work, biologists like to take them apart. By removing genes from cells in diverse combinations, researchers have now uncovered how different genes work together to keep cells alive. The research will help scientists understand how faults in multiple genes combine to drive common diseases such as cancer or heart disease.
