  • Preventing Pandemics Is Cheaper Than Fighting Them

    Preventing Pandemics Is Cheaper Than Fighting Them

    Taking preventative actions to lower the probability of a pandemic would cost around 500 times less than reacting to a pandemic.

  • Climate Change Affecting Marine Ecosystem

    Climate Change Affecting Marine Ecosystem

    With an increase in greenhouse gas concentrations, the oceans are capturing increasing energy from the sun, causing an increase in sea surface temperatures and rising sea levels.

    Dolphins May Be Militarized For Defense Purposes

    The US and Soviet forces have trained and deployed marine dolphins for various purposes. Military dolphins have been taught to rescue lost naval swimmers, protect military ships from enemy divers, discover mines for later removal by divers, and assist in locating and recovering equipment lost at sea.

  • Challenges To Young Scientists

    Challenges To Young Scientists

    Young scientists are critical for the growth of research and the development of the world's economic system. Despite this, they continue to confront obstacles to success that force them to relocate or even give up on their research careers.

  • A New Study Finds Surprising Connection Of Nucleic Acids With Fats

    A New Study Finds Surprising Connection Of Nucleic Acids With Fats

    New study has revealed how lipids and RNA may directly interact, and how this may influence RNA activity in unanticipated ways.

    How Pharm Companies Used Psychiatrists to Push Amphetamines

    Psychiatrists may make a fortune administering drugs. They aren't compensated to prescribe, while pharma firms are no longer allowed to send extravagant gifts, they may still pay for physicians and their families to attend “meetings” in exotic and attractive destinations.

    Leaving Flatland: Advances In 3D Behavioral Measurement

    Animals move in three dimensions (3D). Thus, 3D measurement is necessary to report the true kinematics of animal movement. Existing 3D measurement techniques draw on specialized hardware, such as motion capture or depth cameras, as well as deep multi-view and monocular computer vision.

    Learning To Automate Cryo-Electron Microscopy Data Collection With Ptolemy

    Over the past decade, cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) has emerged as a primary method for determining near-native, near-atomic resolution 3D structures of biological macromolecules. Automated approaches to improve throughput and efficiency while lowering costs are needed to meet the increasing demand for cryo-EM. Currently, in the process of collecting high-magnification cryo-EM micrographs, data collection requires human input and manual tuning of parameters, as expert operators must navigate low- and medium-magnification images to find good high-magnification collection locations.

  • A Formalism For The Long-Distance Magnetic Field Generated By Populations Of Neurons

    A Formalism For The Long-Distance Magnetic Field Generated By Populations Of Neurons

    Brain activity can be measured using magnetic fields located at some distance from the brain, a technique called magneto-encephalography (MEG). The origin of such magnetic fields are the ionic currents involved in neuronal activity. While these processes are well known at the microscopic scale, it is less clear how large populations of neurons generate magnetic fields.
