Mapping the evolution of a virus

...e it involved close interaction between experts in computation and virology and medicine. Once we had created the map, we tested its reliability by making hundreds of predictions of how well certain strains might match up and then conducting laboratory tests to check the predictions. It's very gratifying that ...

ASU advance could provide insight into human's ability to recognize patterns

...as phase-locked loops. "Computers can do very fast computation that humans cannot do, but humans can recognize patterns so much better than computers," Lai said. "The question is why. What is the fundamental mechanism that a biological system like us can make use of and try to memorize patterns." A key to patter...

Carnegie Mellon University research story ideas on DNA

... Since 1997, Durand has focused on new ways to use computation to study thousands of genes simultaneously. Studying genes in this volume reveals patterns and trends not obvious when scientists study a few genes at a time. To do such high volume work, Durand uses WWW "bots," or programs that download information ...

Prions offer nanotech building tool

Rather than building the metal wire itself, they let prions build a very thin fibrous template and then coaxed gold and silver to bond to the protein fibers. By themselves, the f...

First draft of 'periodic table' of protein structures helps visualize nature's universe of proteins

Because the computation involved was very intensive, Kim's group chose a subset of these to "map" - the 500 most common motifs that are the building blocks of about 80 percent of all known protein structures. "My guess is that three-quarters of most organisms' proteins have...
