The hidden talent of fungi

Researchers at TU Wien propose a new method to interpret and mine the genomes of fungi. The goal: prediction of essential genes for the production of valuable substances.

VR visualization supports research on molecular networks

Networks offer a powerful way to visualize and analyze complex systems. However, depending on the size and complexity of the network, many visualizations are limited. Protein interactions in the human body constitute such ...

3-D print your own Mars rover with ExoMy

Europe's Rosalind Franklin ExoMars rover has a younger 'sibling' – ExoMy. The blueprints and software for this mini-version of the full-size Mars explorer are available for free so that anyone can 3-D print, assemble and ...

Academics develop algorithm to analyse HeLa cancer cells

Dr. Cefa Karabag and Dr. Constantino Carlos Reyes-Aldasoro have collaborated with the Francis Crick Institute in preparing and analyzing HeLa cells as part of a research project, documented in the October edition of the PLoS ...

Machine learning peeks into nano-aquariums

In the nanoworld, tiny particles such as proteins appear to dance as they transform and assemble to perform various tasks while suspended in a liquid. Recently developed methods have made it possible to watch and record these ...

High time to open up ecological research

Share the code and data behind the research please. It's easy, but it will have a major positive impact on progress and trust in science. That is the clear message from a new paper in PLOS Biology. An international team of ...

Wannier90 program becomes community code in major new release

Wannier functions were first introduced by Gregory Wannier in 1937 as an alternative way of describing the electronic ground state of periodic systems. They were linked to Bloch orbitals, the standard method of describing ...
