Unusual proteins that can quickly fold into different shapes provide cells with a novel regulatory mechanism.
Inside cells, droplets of biomolecules called condensates merge, divide and dissolve. Their dance may regulate vital processes.
The simple insight that most changes are random had a profound effect on genetics, evolution and ecology.
Researchers see structural changes in genetic material that allow memories to strengthen when remembered.
Neural networks have been taught to quickly read the surfaces of proteins — molecules critical to many biological processes.
Maintaining perfect stability through negative feedback is a basic element of electrical circuitry, but it’s been a mystery how cells could do it — until now.
