Transporter protein study delivers a world first

A team of EU-funded researchers has become the first in the world to work out the structure of a transporter protein in all three main structural states. Transporter proteins are responsible for ferrying substances into and out of cells and the new findings could lead to new drugs for a range of diseases and disorders.

World's smallest 3D map demonstrates improved nanofabrication technique

IBM scientists have created a 3D map of the earth so small that 1,000 of them could fit on one grain of salt. The scientists accomplished this by means of a new, breakthrough technique that uses a tiny, silicon tip with a sharp apex - 100,000 times smaller than a sharpened pencil - to create patterns and structures as small as 15 nanometers at greatly reduced cost and complexity.
