and biomaterials testing. Caterpillars provide a useful survival model: They do not escape predators by running but instead use camouflage, chemical defenses and cryptic behavior. As a result, their movement crawling has evolved into a highly spec...
A possible new form of 'supersolid' matter
...han1-2004.htm . In addition, NSF has prepared an animation
that illustrates the basics of Chan and Kim's experimental setup, and the supersolid behavior they believe they have detected....
Computer model offers new tool to probe Woburn toxic waste site
... Bair's graduate students, to construct a computer animation
of a typical set of model results. Metheny ran hundreds of simulations with the plume model to address uncertainties such as the release dates of TCE and PCE, and the concentration of the releases. She then compared the simulated concentrations of TC...

Researchers elucidate machinery of major anti-cancer target
...igurations produce the equivalent of a stop-motion animation
of the enzyme's reaction path. The scientists' work was supported by the National Institutes of Health. FTase works as a cellular seamstress, connecting a fatty farnesyl molecule to newly built protein enzymes when they emerge from the cell's product...

Virtual cells help unravel cell motion
...inside the cell. Solving the equations produces an animation
that shows how the virtual cell behaves under different conditions. For example, by changing the pH gradient in the virtual cell, the researchers could reproduce the responses of a real cell. Mogilner is part of a large collaboration, funded by a Na...
