A high-resolution structure of F-actin published recently in Nature by RIKEN SPring-8 Center researcher Toshiro Oda and his colleagues represents an important leap forward in understanding the function of this essential protein.
Researchers from RIKEN's Advanced Science Institute in Wako, in collaboration with researchers from Rutgers University, US, and Kyoto University, have developed an experimental method that enables the investigation of the electron pairing mechanism even for these more complex superconductors.
The acceleration of nanoscale solutions to enable clean and renewable energy applications is the theme of a first-ever global conference to be held next week at the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering of the University at Albany.
A new paper published in the May 2009 issue of Scientific American, asks readers to imagine producing vehicles so small they would be about the size of a molecule and powered by engines that run on sugar.
The end of deep, painful vaccine injections is in sight. One of the first widespread applications of nanotechnology in medicine could be a painless, needle-free vaccine 'nanopatch' being developed by Australian scientists.
Engineering researchers at the University of Arkansas have fabricated and tested a unique biosensor that measures concentrations of potassium and hydrogen ions in the human heart with high specificity.
The consortium of the integrated project IP Nanoker developed within the framework of the 6th Framework Programme of the European Commission is proud to announce the release of its documentary on 'Structural Nanocomposites for Top-End Functional Applications'.
