Researchers study grapevine microbiotaMarch 26, 2015

A new study of the microbes growing in and around grapevines, led by researchers from Argonne National Laboratory, surveyed microbes on the plants and their influence on the plants' health.

Modeling how cells move together could inspire self-healing materialsMarch 18, 2015

A paper published in Nature’s Scientific Reports by a team led by Argonne physicist Igor Aronson modeled the motion of cells moving together. This may help scientists design new technologies inspired by nature, such as self-healing materials in batteries and other devices.

Improved understanding of protein complex offers insight into DNA replication initiation mechanism basicsMarch 18, 2015

A clearer understanding of the origin recognition complex – a protein complex that directs DNA replication – through its crystal structure offers new insight into fundamental mechanisms of DNA replication initiation. This will also provide insight into how ORC may be compromised in a subset of patients with Meier-Gorlin syndrome, a form of dwarfism in humans.
