Scientists develop novel computational model for aptamer generation, with wide applications — ScienceDaily

Oligonucleotides are short, single strands of synthetic DNA or RNA. Albeit small, these molecules play an important role in molecular and synthetic biology applications. One type of oligonucleotide — aptamers — can selectively bind to specific targets such as proteins, peptides, carbohydrates, viruses, toxins, metal ions and even live cells. As they are similar to …

Large ensemble simulations with a global climate system model reveal the role of internal climate variability

Change in surface air temperatures (SATs) at different time periods (relative to 1961-1990) and the internal variabilities (The dots identify signal strength and are significant to the study). The line is the globally averaged surface air temperature. Below the year, the SAT changes and the range of IVs are denoted. Credit: Pengfei Lin Since the …

New polymer property could give accessible solar power a boost

Jun 07, 2022 (Nanowerk News) Lightweight as a window cling and replicable as a newspaper, organic solar cells are emerging as a viable solution for the nation’s growing energy demand. Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign are the first to observe a biological property called chirality emerging in achiral conjugated polymers, which are used …
