The Simons Foundation is delighted to announce the formation of the Center for Computational Quantum Physics, in the foundation’s new Flatiron Institute, and the appointment of Antoine Georges as its director.
Each year thousands of genomes are sequenced, millions of neuronal activity traces are recorded, and light from hundreds of millions of galaxies is captured by our newest telescopes, all creating datasets of staggering size.
Salk Institute researchers have discovered a holy grail of gene editing-the ability to, for the first time, insert DNA at a target location into the non-dividing cells that make up the majority of adult organs and tissues.
Scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered that mutations in PTEN affect the assembly of connections between two brain areas important for the processing of social cues.
Cells secure DNA within their nuclei like a secret code stashed in a vault. However, the tightly controlled borders of the nucleus create a challenge: In order for the cell to produce essential proteins, messages derived from DNA must somehow escape...
Understanding how carbon dissolves in water at the molecular level under extreme conditions is critical to understanding the Earth’s deep carbon cycle–a process that ultimately influences global climate change.
