Kernel tensor decomposition and its use in drug discovery for SARS-CoV-2 was vital, however, due to its general method, it has the potential to be used for a wide range of future problems.
Electroactive microbes exchange electrons with their environment for survival.
The gastrointestinal microbiome comprises trillions of bacteria, and is a vitally important organ with wide ranging effects on pet health.
The unification of gravitational, Strong and Weak Forces has been a long-sought goal [1-3]. In general, force unification refers to the idea that it is possible to view all of the forces of nature as manifestations of one single, all-encompassing force.
Liquid Crystal Elastomers (LCE), invented over 30 years ago, have been considered a highly promising material system for soft actuators and artificial muscles ever since.
Host defences operate to prevent ‘ancient viruses’ from ever jumping but, in cancers, cells lose multiple layers of ‘epigenetic’ control, and this can lead to the awakening of jumping or ‘retrotransposition’ of ancient viruses.
With calculations suggesting that the financial system is effectively funding temperature increases of over three degrees centigrade, how can central banks promote the greening of finance?
We need STEM knowledge programs in formal and informal settings that guide learners in applying STEM learning to the creation of solutions.
Sabine Mai and Aline Rangel-Pozzo, at the CancerCare Manitoba Research Institute and The University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada, discuss genomic instability in relation to 3D spatial organisation of telomeres.
Peter Bretscher, Faculty in the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Saskatchewan questions whether there is a way of fostering resilience in immunological research.
Open Science and Research Infrastructures provide the foundation and pillars necessary to tackle global...
COVID has highlighted the importance of Open Science and research infrastructures to accelerate the impact of scientific research.
August 1948 saw the Soviet government ban all teaching and research in genetics. Within a year, “the doctrine of agronomist Trofim Lysenko – dubbed ‘Soviet Creative Darwinism’ – replaced genetics in curricula and research plans of biological, medical, veterinary, and agricultural institutions.” (Krementsov 2010).
Christopher Gerner from the Joint Metabolome Facility at the University of Vienna, Austria, walks us through what we need to know about managing chronic disease by individualized metabolomics & artificial intelligence.
Chris Jeynes ponders the reality of the Arrow of Time (the Second Law of Thermodynamics) and how it conditions the basic laws of physics.
Mentoring diverse graduate students in agriculture, geoscience, and related disciplines: Are you a mentor?
Mentoring starts from within the faculty member – a mentor guides a student from situation to solution using their lived experiences and expertise.
Zbigniew M. Stadnik, Professor at the University of Ottawa in the Department of Physics, looks at the magnetic order in quasicrystals
Mr. F. Joseph Merlino, President of the 21st Century Partnership for STEM Education, underlines the importance of preparing future problem solvers.
In this piece, Dr Helen Rowe summarizes how arrays or strings of multi-copy satellite DNAs can barcode chromosomes to regulate cell fate, by acting...
COSPAR's dedicated Panel supports today's science teachers for tomorrow's space exploration.
Liquid Crystal Elastomers (LCE) have been invented over 30 years ago, and ever since were considered a highly promising material system for soft actuators and artificial muscles.
