Biomolecular computers, made of DNA and other biological molecules, only exist today in a few specialized labs, remote from the regular computer user.
Applying biological molecules from cell membranes to the surfaces of artificial materials is opening peepholes on the very basics of cell-to-cell interaction.
Berkeley Lab scientists have shown how thousands of bacterial membrane proteins are able to assemble into clusters that direct cell movement to select chemicals in their environment.
A new three-dimensional computer protein map is helping researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) unravel the biological pathways that control brain-cell death after a stroke.
New details of the composition and structure of a needlelike protein complex on the surface of certain bacteria may help scientists develop new strategies to thwart infection.
Physicists at Brown University have developed a novel procedure to map a personâ€™s genome.
Chemists at New York University and Harvard University have created a bipedal, autonomous DNA "walker" that can mimic a cell's transportation system.
Even within cells, the left hand knows what the right hand is doing.
In an upcoming issue of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Yale researchers used newly developed mathematical models to analyze huge amounts of data on physical characteristics such as temperature and salinity in different ocean habitats and metabolic activity in marine micro-organisms.
FEI Company (Nasdaq: FEIC), a leading provider of high-resolution imaging and analysis systems, announced today that three of the top life sciences research centers in Asia--National University of Singapore, Tsinghua University (Beijing), and the Institute of Biophysics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing)--have selected the Titan Krios(TM) transmission electron microscope (TEM) to support their research programs in structural molecular biology.
The Biophysical Journal is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published biweekly by Cell Press on behalf of the Biophysical Society. It was established in 1960. The editor-in-chief is Edward Egelman. It covers all aspects of biophysics. It is the leading international journal for original research in molecular, cellular, and system biophysics. Modern biophysics is a broad and rapidly advancing field encompassing the study of biological structures with a focus on mechanisms at the...
The European Biophysics Journal is a scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the European Biophysical Societies Association. Published works occur in the field of biophysics (the study of biological phenomena using physical methods and concepts). It publishes original papers, reviews and letters. The editor-in-chief is Anthony Watts of University of Oxford. Areas of research that are frequently published in the journal include: structure and dynamics of...
