Scientists are using powerful analytical and imaging tools to study artworks from all ages, delving deep below the surface to reveal the process and materials used by some of the world’s greatest artists. Chemist Richard Van Duyne, in collaboration with conservation scientists at the Art Institute of Chicago, has been using a scientific method to investigate masterpieces by Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Winslow Homer and Mary Cassatt.
Over the last few decades researchers have characterized a set of clock genes that drive daily rhythms of physiology and behavior in all types of species, from flies to humans. Over 15 mammalian clock proteins have been identified, but researchers surmise there are more. A team from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania wondered if big-data approaches could find them.
When I started to work on performance tools for parallel computers 25 years ago, I wasn’t sure how long I would be able to work in this interesting and exciting area of high performance computing. Performance was always in the center of HPC, so anyone helping application developers to optimize and tune their codes was in high demand.
A team led by Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI) scientists has found that Alzheimer's disease and cancer share a pathway in gene transcription, a process essential for cell reproduction and growth.
