Simulations predict mysterious biological processes of the cell

The research group of Lucie Delemotte, Associate Professor in computational biophysics at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden, is focusing on understanding the function of ion channels in cell membranes. ...

Researchers create a sea of nano-sized gold stars

Researchers from the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) and the University of Washington (UW) have successfully designed a bio-inspired molecule that can direct gold atoms to form perfect ...

A new methodology for predicting corrosion rates

Most metal alloys are prone to corrosion, which costs hundreds of billions of dollars of damage annually in the U.S. alone. Accurately predicting corrosion rates is a long-standing goal of corrosion science, but these rates ...

Molecule snapshot by explosion

Exploding a photo subject in order to take its picture? An international research team at the European XFEL, the world's largest X-ray laser, applied this "extreme" method to take pictures of complex molecules. The scientists ...

Vortex microscope sees more than ever before

Understanding the nitty gritty of how molecules interact with each other in the real, messy, dynamic environment of a living body is a challenge that must be overcome in order to understand a host of diseases, such as Alzheimer's.

Decoding the role of CSB protein in DNA repair

Using the Summit supercomputer at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), a Georgia State University (GSU) research team has revealed the structural mechanism of the Cockayne Syndrome ...

N-alkanes proved to be a safe, novel and green cooling material

The traditional refrigerant Freon is a strong greenhouse gas that leads to serious climate problems. Stimulated by the excellent cooling performance of plastic crystal materials, barocaloric (BC) cooling received much attention ...
