  • Researchers Reverse the Flow of Time on IBM's Quantum ComputerExternal link

    03.18.19 An international team of scientists led by Argonne explored the concept of reversing time in a first-of-its-kind experiment, managing to return a computer briefly to the past. The results present new possibilities for quantum computer program testing and error correction.

  • Uncovering Uncultivated Microbes in the Human GutExternal link

    03.18.19 Researchers from the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab), the Gladstone Institutes, and the Chan-Zuckerberg Biohub presented nearly 61,000 microbial genomes that were computationally reconstructed from 3,810 publicly available human gut metagenomes, which are datasets of all the genetic material present in a microbiome sample. The metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) included 2,058 previously unknown species, thereby bringing the number of known human gut species to 4,558 and increasing the phylogenetic diversity of sequenced gut bacteria by 50 percent.
