To activate genes which might also play a role in carcinogenesis, the genetic material first needs to be unwrapped and made accessible for other cell components. Using a new biophysical method called single molecule spectroscopy, scientists observed these mechanisms directly and to characterize intermediate stages on the way to free genetic material.
Restrictions on liquids in carry-on bags on commercial airliners could become a thing of the past thanks to a revolutionary nano-electric device which detects potentially hazardous liquids in luggage in a fraction of a second.
