01.03.2016 Building living, breathing supercomputers: Discovery opens doors to creation of biological supercomputers that are about the size of a book
The substance that provides energy to all the cells in our bodies, Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), may also be able to power the next generation of supercomputers. That is what an international team of...
15.01.2014 RNA nanotechnology - fewer structures in living cells than in test tubes
A study of RNA structures actually present in cells reveals that cells spend energy restricting thermodynamically driven RNA folding so that fewer RNA structures are found in cells than in test tubes.
18.02.2014 Researchers hijack cancer migration mechanism to 'move' brain tumors
One factor that makes glioblastoma cancers so difficult to treat is that malignant cells from the tumors spread throughout the brain by following nerve fibers and blood vessels to invade new locations...

18.02.2010 Cargo carrier of the cells is life"s smallest motor
Life's smallest motor, a protein that shuttles cargo within cells and helps cells divide, does so by rocking up and down like a seesaw, according to research conducted by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Brandeis University.
17.03.2010 Hydrogen Storage Issues Could Be Solved By Layered Graphene Sheets
Graphene - carbon formed into sheets a single atom thick - now appears to be a promising base material for capturing hydrogen, according to recent research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Pennsylvania. The findings suggest stacks of graphene layers could potentially store hydrogen safely for use in fuel cells and other applications.

30.03.2010 New EU project PRIMA to use nanostructures to improve solar cell efficiency
Imec announces that it has started work, together with its project partners, on PRIMA, a project under the EU's 7th framework program for ICT (FP7). The project's goal is to improve the efficiency and cost of solar cells though the use of metallic nanostructures.
05.04.2010 New Study Shows Carbon Nanotubes Will Break Down Harmlessly
A team of scientists has shown for the first time that carbon nanotubes can be broken down by an enzyme - myeloperoxidase (MPO) - found in white blood cells. Their discoveries contradict what was previously believed, that carbon nanotubes are not broken down in the body or in nature.
