Physics Nobel: deciphering climate disorder to better predict it

The Nobel Prize in Physics has gone to three scientists who sought to predict the long-term evolution of a complex system such as the climate by modelling variables—weather, human actions—that create disorder within those ...

A Swiss army knife for genomic data

A good way to find out what a cell is doing—whether it is growing out of control as in cancers, or is under the control of an invading virus, or is simply going about the routine business of a healthy cell—is to look ...

Making cell modeling more realistic

Researchers at the University of California San Diego have developed a computational tool that makes modeling and simulation of complex cellular processes more true to life.

Leptons help in tracking new physics

Electrons with 'colleagues'—other leptons—are one of many products of collisions observed in the LHCb experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. According to theorists, some of these particles may be created in processes ...
