Institute for Systems Biology Symposium Addresses Need for Better Computational Tools
... Grid is enabling ISB researchers to predict three dimensional
structures, which are more highly conserved than one dimensional
structures. Understanding three dimensional
structures allow researchers to identify the presumptive...
Major advance made on DNA structure
...tarting to see what the genome looks like in three dimensional
reality, not just what the sequence of genes is," Ho said. "DNA is much more than just a string of letters, it's an actual structure that we have to explore if we ever hope to understand biological function. This is a significant step forward, a mile...
Clues to breast cancer hidden inside stem cells
...on immortalised these cells and grew them in three dimensional
matrix that mimics the real, living tissue. Biologists have long relied on 2-dimensional cell cultures as the basic tool of their trade. But there is a big difference between a flat layer of cells and culturing cells in three-dimensions. The Icelandi...
Scientists make first step towards 'holy grail' of crystallography
...h converts materials, such as proteins, into three dimensional
crystals, thus enabling their atomic structure to be studied. The three dimensional
structure of the crystals indicates the proteins function, and from this, researchers hope to be abl...
Brain-computer link lets paralyzed patients convert thoughts into actions
...ers to convert patterns of neural spikes into two- dimensional
commands. "Training patients to move things with their minds is different with each patient," said Maryam Saleh, who worked with the first two patients as a Cyberkinetics technician and is now a doctoral student in Hatsopoulos's Chicago lab. The ...
Coral stress 'like never in history'
...s ago. "The sequence of fossils is like a three dimensional
movie of what happened in the reefs?past," says Pandolfi. Over the 6000 years recorded in the fossil strata the team found 4 devastating events which resulted in the death of most of the reef ?indicating such events had occurred about once every...
New sunscreen ingredient to heal sunburn and help prevent skin cancer
...es of the ingredient in the laboratory using three dimensional
human skin cultures, but expect to be trialling the ingredient with volunteers in the next two to three years. "When skin is exposed to high doses of sunlight, such as when you are sunbathing, a massive amount of free iron is released in skin cells...
American scientist's research of life's first cells

Danish researches solve virus puzzle
... a tendency to curl up into 'pseudoknots', a three dimensional
structure. When the ribosome walking along an RNA encounters a pseudoknot it needs to unravel the pseudoknot before it can proceed. Question is, how does it do that? Lene Oddershede at the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen has developed ...
