How to draw a line narrower than a cold virus

For the first time, a team demonstrated a technique that creates tiny, precise metallic shapes. They rastered a beam from a helium-ion microscope through a liquid precursor to induce chemical reactions. The reactions locally ...

Common cold viruses reveal one of their strengths

Common cold season is back, which has people wondering why we catch the same virus, year after year. Why don't we ever develop immunity against the common cold? Professor Pierre Talbot at INRS has known about the incredible ...

Scientist maps giant virus

In a laboratory at Michigan State University, scientists took a DIY approach to build a retrofitted cryo-electron microscope that allowed them to map a giant Samba virus – one of the world's largest viruses.

How a cold gets into cells

Viruses smuggle their genetic material into our cells. How this actually works is currently being investigated at TU Wien (Vienna) using a new combination of analysis methods.

Scientists develop potential new drug treatment to tackle viruses

(Phys.org) —An international team of scientists have successfully developed a novel compound which early signs suggest might prevent a range of viruses from infecting humans.  Researchers from Oxford, Beijing, Leeds and ...
