Medicine & TechnologyA team of chemists from Emory University in Atlanta, US, has invented a shape-shifting peptide nanomaterial that can be triggered controllably - paving the way for potential biomedicine applications.
Carbon spheres - small spherical structures that have found large applications in carbon capture and energy storage - can now be created faster and more sustainably in a novel technique developed by researchers.
Next-generation sequencing for genetic research is becoming a more and more desirable commodity, which, along with the commercialization of various NGS platforms, is increasingly used by many laboratories worldwide. (Source: Target Enrichment) As can be seen in recent years, computer-aided whole-genome analysis is frequently applied as the basis for cutting-edge discoveries in biomedical research.
One property of quantum mechanics is superposition, which explains how a system could be in multiple states at the same time until the instant it is observed or measured. A theoretical study suggests that this phenomenon affects high-precision clocks.
In a microscopic context, fluctuations can cause phenomena that directly violate the second law of thermodynamics, leading observers to find the arrow of time being blurry and vague. However, a new machine-learning algorithm could help researchers in the future.
