Micro- and Nanotechnologies for Quantitative Biology and Medicine

Ten new reviews and original research reports that illustrate how the progression of research assays from qualitative outputs toward increasingly sensitive quantitative outputs is transforming life sciences and biomedical research and diagnostics by improving the ability of researchers and clinicians to detect and quantify increasingly complex assays.

Bringing a 'Trust but Verify' Model to Journal Peer Review

In a commentary published July 20 in the journal Science, lead author Carole Lee of the University of Washington and co-author identify incentives to encourage journals to "open the black box of peer review" for the sake of improving transparency, reproducibility, and trust in published research.

Over the next decade, 800,000 tons of rock will be excavated from the former Homestake Mine in Lead, South Dakota, to accommodate a particle detector filled with 70,000 tons of liquid argon cooled to -300 degrees Fahrenheit to study neutrinos beamed from Fermilab in Illinois. It’s called the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

Hunting of pangolins, the world’s most illegally traded mammal, increased by a staggering 150 percent in Central African forests from 1970s up to 2014, according to a new study by the University of Sussex, WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society), and other groups.

Pulses of Electrons Manipulate Nanomagnets and Store Information

Skyrmions are a kind of nanomagnet, comprised of a spin-correlated ensemble of electrons acting as a topological magnet on certain microscopic surfaces. The precise properties, like spin orientation, of such nanomagnets can store information. But how might you go about moving or manipulating these nanomagnets at will to store the data you want? New research demonstrates such read/write ability using bursts of electrons, encoding topological energy structures robustly enough for potential data storage applications. The researchers report their work this week in Applied Physics Letters.

Cash for Carbon: A Cost-Effective Way to Reduce Deforestation

A new Northwestern University study suggests that paying people to conserve their trees could be a highly cost-effective way to reduce deforestation and carbon emissions and should be a key part of the global strategy to fight climate change.

Making Flood Forecasting Easier, Faster

LCRAFloodSnapshot.jpg

Floods and tornadoes are the deadliest disasters in the world. In the United States alone, approximately 80 lives are lost every year due to flood related incidents. In addition to the loss of lives, the nation loses billions of dollars in property damage and spends billions on recovery and rebuilding efforts every year.
