Evolutionary analysis shows SARS-CoV-2 variants converging

An analysis of massive amounts of genetic data on the SARS-CoV-2 virus suggests that COVID-19 variants worldwide are repeatedly evolving the same mutations, according to a study published today in eLife and carried out by ...

Young people most likely to see career benefits to remote working

Despite warnings that working from home will be detrimental to young people's careers, young people themselves are particularly likely to feel that remote working has benefits that could help their career progression, according ...

Researchers film fundamental life process at cellular level

All proteins in a cell are assembled by complicated molecular machines. The precursors of these ribosomes are produced in the cell nucleus and then enter the cell through the so-called nuclear pores. Researchers at the University ...

New nanoscale device for spin technology

Researchers at Aalto University have developed a new device for spintronics. The results have been published in the journal Nature Communications, and mark a step towards the goal of using spintronics to make computer chips ...

Researching the chips of the future

The chips of the future will include photonics and electronics; they will have bandwidth, speed and processing and computing abilities that are currently unthinkable; they will make it possible to integrate many other components, ...

How cellular machinery labels proteins for degradation

Proteins are molecular work horses in the cell that perform specific tasks, but it is essential that the timing of protein activities is exquisitely controlled. When proteins have fulfilled their tasks, their degradation ...
