Carnegie Mellon scientists find key HIV protein makes cell membranes bend more easily

...Journal, will provide vital data to conduct future computer simulations of HIV dynamics to help further drug discovery and prevent deadly infections. “We found that HIV fusion peptide dramatically decreases the amount of energy needed to bend a cell-like membrane,” said Stephanie Tristram-Nagle, associate re...

Simulations unravel outer membrane transport mechanism

...y L. Brian Stauffer Using X-ray data and advanced computer simulation and visualization software, researchers at the University of Illinois have painstakingly modeled a critical part of a mechanism by which bacteria take up large molecules. Their findings provide a rare window on the complex interplay of pro...

Envisat captures first image of Sargassum from space

...inciple behind Grid computing is that anything one computer can do, a pool of computers can do faster and better, enabling the solution of massively complex tasks beyond the capabilities of a single machine or local network. By using Grid technology, Gower and King intend to compute 5-years worth of MERIS...

Largest synthetic gene ever built offers insights into anti-malarial drug resistance

...hen "back translated" the protein sequence using a computer program to change the parasite gene sequence − which combines nucleotide base pairs in a way that is found in no other life form − into one that could be "read" by yeast. The yeast are then able to produce the PfMDR1 protein, in its proper sequen...

Exploring the dark matter of the genome

...Francisco State University. "We used a pipeline of computer programs to analyze the raw sequence data, in search of genes. We identified patterns of codons that might indicate a gene splice-site or a promoter, for example. We mapped experimentally derived evidence of messenger RNAs back to the matching hetero...

Research finds that circadian rhythms dominate all life functions

... in 98 to 99 percent of all genes through advanced computer algorithms. Most of these genes have never been previously reported as changing their expression level in a daily cycle. Some of these genes, considered "housekeeping," have been used as a stable reference platform in gene expression studies. "A...

Role of noise in neurons

...(1ìm is one millionth of a meter). Although, as in computer chips, this miniaturization economizes on space and energy, it increases the noise introduced by thermodynamic fluctuations in a neuron's voltage-gated ion channels.
