Quasiparticles may hold the key to understanding the quantum scale mechanisms that explain macroscale movements. Image Source: Flickr User: NASA Goddard Photo and Video Understanding how superfluid helium (liquid helium with zero viscosity) interacts with other molecules has been a formidable challenge. After decades of jumping hurdles, researchers have determined […]

A prototypical heat shock protein whose overexpression is linked to carcinogenesis in humans. Source: http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ As the big data revolution continues, doctors, immunologists and other human-health oriented biologists are growing increasingly disillusioned with their ability to connect insights from large data sets to concrete human health impacts. A new review […]
