(Via CNB-CSIC) A study published in the journal PNAS describes what happens at the atomic level when a double-stranded nucleic acid molecule is stretched. Using computer simulation, scientists found a way to explain why DNA coils when it is stretched, whereas double-stranded RNA unwinds. If a DNA molecule is stretched, it will coil up on itself. If the same is done with an RNA double helix, it will unwind. Why do they behave so differently alt ...

(Via Universitat de Barcelona). Sugar or carbohydrate synthesis is important for the development of diagnostic tests, vaccines and new drugs. In a study co-led by a team of the Department of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry and the Institute of Theoretical and Computational Chemistry of the UB (IQTCUB), together with a research group of biological chemistry of the University of Oxford, have synthetized carbohydrates with enzymes through a reaction ...

(Via LIGO and UIB) The LIGO Scientific Collaboration has made a third detection of gravitational waves. As was the case with the first two detections, the waves were generated when two black holes merged to form a larger black hole. LIGO is a group of more than 1200 researchers from more than 100 scientific institutions, spread over four different continents. From 2002, the Relativity and Gravitation Group from the Universitat de les Illes Balear ...
