Discovery of hidden structures in bacterial DNA

Researchers have described the 3D structure of the genome in the extremely small bacteria Mycoplasma pneumoniae. They discovered previously unknown arrangements of DNA within this tiny bacteria, which are also found in larger cells. Their findings suggest that this type of organization is a universal feature of living cells. DNA contains the instructions for life,…

Coming to a lab bench near you: Femtosecond X-ray spectroscopy

​Summary: For the first time, researchers have captured the ephemeral electron movements in a transient state of a chemical reaction using ultrafast, tabletop X-ray spectroscopy. The researchers used femtosecond pulses of X-ray light to catch the unraveling of a ring molecule that is important in biochemical and optoelectronic processes. The experiments are described in the April…

Controlling turtle motion by human thoughts

Researchers have developed a technology that can remotely control an animal’s movement with human thought. Remote control animals are animals that are controlled remotely by humans. Some applications require electrodes to be implanted in the animal’s nervous system connected to a receiver which is usually carried on the animal’s back. The animals are controlled by the…
