Hints About How Viruses Commandeer Human ProteinsExternal link

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University and the University of Michigan have produced the first image of an important human protein as it binds with ribonucleic acid (RNA), a discovery that could offer clues to how some viruses, including HIV, control expression of their genetic material.

A History of Phage-Host Interactions With Help From CRISPRsExternal link

Using metagenomic datasets produced from the Iron Mountain site in Northern California and customized tools, researchers used bacterial spacer sequences commonly called CRISPRs to link phage and hosts in ecological studies. Read MoreExternal linkage


Getting Water to All the Right Places for Carbon SequestrationExternal link

Using computer simulations, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory's scientists discovered that carbon sequestering minerals can form without water-slurping carbonic acid; rather, a water layer forms on a mineral's surface, leaves atomic voids that carbon dioxide fills, and mineralizes in minutes.

“Shrinking Bull’s-Eye” Algorithm Speeds Up Complex Modeling From Days to HoursExternal link

MIT researchers have developed a new algorithm that vastly reduces the computation of virtually any computational model. Read MoreExternal linkage


Using Powerful Computers, Physicists Uncover Mechanism That Stabilizes Plasma Within TokamaksExternal link

A team of physicists led by Stephen Jardin of the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has discovered a mechanism that prevents the electrical current flowing through fusion plasma from repeatedly peaking and crashing. Read MoreExternal linkage


Tackling a TrillionExternal link

To study topics that take a huge amount of data, like the development of the universe or plasma physics, a team of scientists has developed a program to run trillion-particle problems from start to finish on the most powerful supercomputers in the United States. Read MoreExternal linkage
