Researchers rein in regulatory RNAs
... most studies on SAT pairs have utilized purely in silico
approaches; very few have experimentally validated the existence of overlapping RNA molecules in vivo. With this in mind, Dr. Hidenori Kiyosawa, the lead author on the paper, set out to confirm the presence of SATs in a variety of mouse tissue types ...
The synapse is a shotgun
...iological measurements from real neurons. Their in silico
modeling indicates that the synapse may behave more like a shotgun than a rifle when it comes to firing the neurotransmitters involved in neuronal communication. The textbook view of the synapse describes it as a place where rifle-like volleys of ne...
Picking particles faster than one at a time
... the highest quality particles, crystallization in silico
may need far fewer than hundreds of thousands of particles. "Jacqueline Milne of the National Cancer Institute has demonstrated that high-quality structural maps can be achieved with a few hundred particles or less -- better than those using tens o...
When the going gets tough, slime molds start synthesizing
...puter programs to find, assemble, and translate in silico
the relevant raw DNA sequencing fragments first into genes then into the proteins these genes encode, Austin reconstructed two type III PKS-like gene sequences, and also found a surprise. Unexpectedly, these deduced genetic blueprints for type III ...
