Novel Computational Biology Model Accurately Describes Dynamics of Gene Expression

YTLin2018JeRLANL252.jpg

Using a simple analytical framework for random events within a predictable system, computational biologists have found a new way to accurately model certain forms of gene expression, including the body's 24-hour internal clock. This new approach of applying a piecewise deterministic Markov process (PDMP) to gene expression could inform possible design principles for synthetic biologists

Tweaking Quantum Dots Powers-Up Double-Pane Solar Windows

double-pane-solar-windows.jpg

Using two types of “designer” quantum dots, researchers are creating double-pane solar windows that generate electricity with greater efficiency and create shading and insulation for good measure. It’s all made possible by a new window architecture which utilizes two different layers of low-cost quantum dots tuned to absorb different parts of the solar spectrum.
