How fast do chemical trains move in living cells?

The rate of chemical processes in cells is dictated by the speed of movement (diffusion) of molecules needed for a given reaction. Using a versatile method developed at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, researchers were able to predict for the first time the diffusion coefficients of all proteins in Escherichia coli. The achievement is important not only for biologists and chemists, but also for... transport companies.

Atomic force microscope may harness big energy from small spores

The U.S. Department of Energy is supporting research to study the force from the unfolding wrinkles in spores and to build new types of materials by assembling the spores into larger structures. The work may eventually lead to the development of a battery that can use energy from spores.
