Researcher Uses Pressure to Understand RNA Dynamics

Just as space holds infinite mysteries, when we zoom in at the level of biomolecules (one trillion times smaller than a meter), there is still so much to learn. Scientists are studying the conformational landscapes of biomolecules and how they modulate cell function. When biomolecules receive ...

Are Viruses Keeping Sea Lice at Bay in Wild Salmon?

More than 30 previously unknown RNA viruses in sea lice have been identified. Sea lice are parasitic copepods (small crustaceans) found in many fresh and saltwater habitats, and have been implicated in the decline of wild salmon populations. The research sheds greater light on the types of viruses ...

Studying Herpes Encephalitis With Mini-Brains

The herpes simplex virus-1 can sometimes cause a dangerous brain infection. Combining an anti-inflammatory and an antiviral could help in these cases, report ...

RSV Is a Serious Heath Threat, but the Public Knows Little About It
