World first for reading digitally encoded synthetic molecules

Using mass spectrometry, researchers have for the first time read several bytes of data recorded on a molecular scale using synthetic polymers. Their work sets a new benchmark for the amount of data stored as a sequence of ...

Widely used database of molecular 'fingerprints' upgraded

When scientists need to identify an unknown compound, they do what a police detective might do. They get fingerprints—in this case, the "molecular fingerprints" of the unknown compound—and run them through a database ...
