First complete coronavirus model shows cooperation

Frontera, Anton 2 supercomputers simulate holistic model of SARS-CoV-2 virion. The COVID-19 virus holds some mysteries. Scientists remain in the dark on aspects of how it fuses and enters the…

Cell biology: Signal transduction without signal

– receptor clusters can direct cell movement Whether we smell, taste or see, or when adrenaline rushes through our veins, all of these signals are received by our cells via…

Retroviruses are re-writing the koala genome and causing cancer

Koalas are facing multiple environmental and health issues which threaten their survival. Along with habitat loss – accelerated by last year’s devastating bush fires – domestic dog attacks and road…

How Photoblueing Disturbs Microscopy

An undesirable effect can occur in super-resolution fluorescence microscopy: photoblueing. A new publication in „Nature Methods“ shows how it can be prevented or made useful for research. The latest developments…

Ultra-high-resolution X-ray imaging of 3D objects

New flexible X-ray sensor suitable for next-generation medical and industrial applications. X-ray imaging is widely used in areas such as healthcare and forensic science, but existing X-ray machines are unable…

New details of SARS-CoV-2 interactions with human cells

In order to infect cells, SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, needs to insert itself into the membrane of human cells; new molecular models show what parts of SARS-CoV-2 are…

Super-Resolution RNA Imaging in Live Cells

Innovative method provides new insight into molecular processes involving RNA. Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is key to various fundamental biological processes. It transfers genetic information, translates it into proteins or supports…

A memory without a brain

How a single cell slime mold makes smart decisions without a central nervous system. Having a memory of past events enables us to take smarter decisions about the future. Researchers…

Microbiome boost may help corals resist bleaching

A simple but powerful idea is to improve the health of corals using cocktails of beneficial bacteria. The strategy is being explored as part of global scientific efforts to help…

Advanced imaging technology captures translation of the maternal genome

An international collaboration among researchers from Finland, Sweden, UK and the USA has captured ribosomes translating messenger RNA expressed from the maternally inherited mitochondrial genome. Utilising the latest advances in…
