Two new studies reveal in unprecedented detail how the ribosome interacts with other molecules to assemble new proteins and guide them toward their destination in biological cells. The studies used molecular dynamics flexible fitting (MDFF) to examine the interaction of the ribosome with two prominent molecular partners.
The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education has announced the national and state Professor of the Year Awards. Physicist Greg Salamo, the Joe N. Basore Professor in Nanotechnology and Innovation in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences, was named Arkansas Professor of the Year.
The goal of CONTACT is to establish a tailored supply chain of new CNT-filled composites with enhanced mechanical and electrical properties for applications including electrodes, structural materials and windblades.
The College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering hosted more than 200 Girl Scouts from across upstate New York on November 21, as the Girl Scouts of Northeastern New York participated in NanoExplorations, a program designed to provide a close-up look at the exciting world of nanotechnology.
The Freiburg Materials Research Center (FMF) will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its founding in 2010. The center will commemorate the occasion by co-organizing three symposia in February, March, and June.
Scientists at the Carnegie Institution have found for the first time that high pressure can be used to make a unique hydrogen-storage material. The discovery paves the way for an entirely new way to approach the hydrogen-storage problem.
Ever wonder what something looks like up close and personal? ASPEX wants your samples! ASPEX, makers of the Personal Scanning Electron Microscope (PSEM), kicked off its 'Send Us Your Sample' campaign, encouraging people to send in samples to be scanned by one of their PSEMs.
Energieeffiziente und umweltfreundliche Technologien ruecken immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt. Welchen Beitrag die Mikro- und Nanotechnologie dabei leisten kann, zeigt eine Veranstaltung am 1. Dezember in Dortmund auf.
To develop tools for tracking histone acetylation in live cells, Minoru Yoshida of the RIKEN Advanced Science Institute in Wako paired his knowledge of histone acetylation with colleague Kazuki Sasaki's expertise in fluorescent biosensor design.
