The Protein Planner

A computational method for designing dramatically more efficient versions of enzymes may lead to new avenues of drug design and new treatments against nerve agents

Millions of times a second, in our bodies and in every living organism, molecules are being cut up or stuck together, thanks to enzymes.

Cellular Trash Cans Reveal the Roles of Proteins in Disease

A novel technology for profiling protein turnover and degradation offers new insight into diagnosis and understanding the molecular basis of autoimmunity, cancer, neurodegeneration and other disorders

If we really want to know how our body’s cells work – or don’t work, in the case of disease – we might need to look beyond their genes and even beyond the proteins they are made of.

Bat Brains Forgo Rhythm when Encoding Space

The finding reveals a new mechanism for orchestrating neuronal activity

Since they were discovered in the 1920s, periodic oscillations in the brain’s electrical activity have been thought to be essential for encoding the experience of physical space, among other things.
