Nanoencapsulation: Chemists at TSRI discover a new and simple way of controlling reactions

...e triggered to react. He adds that this control is inherent within the reaction a self-regulatory control, not unlike what living systems use in nature. "To study the dynamics of living systems, which are really very complex," he says, "you have to look at systems such as these." The research article "Amplifi...

Tidying up transcription factors
