Nature inspires first artificial molecular pump

Using nature for inspiration, a team of Northwestern University scientists is the first to develop an entirely artificial molecular pump, in which molecules pump other molecules. This tiny machine is no small feat. The pump ...

Molecular machines drive plasmonic nanoswitches

Plasmonics -- a possible replacement for current computing approaches -- may pave the way for the next generation of computers that operate faster and store more information than electronically-based systems and are smaller ...

Researchers capture six new structures of the ribosome in action

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital scientists have used single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer (smFRET) and cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to capture six new structures of the ribosome and its ...
