Free-energy theory borne out in large-scale protein folding

In unprecedented new research, scientists at Rice University have combined theory and experiment for the first time to both predict theoretically and verify experimentally the protein-folding dynamics of a large, complex protein. The interdisciplinary research appears this week in two back-to-bac...

New wheat disease could spread faster than expected

...or close proximity tend to move in a fairly predictable and constant rate of speed, researchers say. However, a significant number of pathogens can be borne by wind-carried spores or migrating birds. In those cases, even though only small amounts of an invading pathogen may show up at any one remote spot, ...

Researchers examine role of climate change in disease spread

... warmer climate in Europe made it possible for the cold-sensitive Culex imicola midge species responsible for carrying the virus to move north. Today, borne by other midge species, Bluetongue has spread to 12 European countries. "There are some confounding factors here, in that infected but asymptomatic...

For example, the formula predicts that nanotubes with the largest chiral angle will grow fastest because they h...

In many fungi, reproductive spores are remarkably aerodynamic

"We set out to answer a very simple question: Why do fungal spores have the shapes that they do?" says co-author Marcus Roper, who cont...

Rooted plants move mysteriously down greenways, scientists say

Though their seeds are neither dispersed by birds nor borne by the wind, they are nevertheless far more likely to slalom down corridors than slog through woods. The findings are revealed in a paper that appe...

Effects of climate change vary greatly across plant families
