Sweet spot: Disabling antibiotic-resistant bacteriaJune 17, 2015

Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory and Brandeis University may have found a way around an infectious bacterium’s natural defenses.

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.

Decoding dengue and West Nile: Researchers take steps toward control of growing public health problemsFebruary 6, 2014

Utilizing Argonne's Advanced Photon Source, a team of scientists from the University of Michigan and Purdue University has discovered a key aspect both to how Dengue fever and West Nile fever replicate in the cells of their host and how they manipulate the immune system as they spread.

New approach to vaccine design targets HIV and other fast-mutating virusesMay 24, 2013

A team of scientists has unveiled a new technique for vaccine design that could be particularly useful against HIV and other fast-mutating viruses. This technique was tested with the help of high-energy X-rays at Argonne National Laboratory.
