Scientists show how one cause of weak enamel unfolds on the molecular level

Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Scientists have shown how a tiny flaw in a protein results in damaged enamel that is prone to decay in people with a condition known as amelogenesis imperfecta. Such patients don’t develop enamel correctly because of a single amino acid defect in the critical enamel protein called amelogenin.

Shorter Rotations in Intensive Care Units Mitigate Burnout Among Physicians

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Shortening the length of rotations in a medical intensive care unit (MICU) from the traditional 14-consecutive day schedule to only seven days helps mitigate burnout among critical care physicians, according to a new Penn Medicine pilot study published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.

Newswise: Applying the Goldilocks Principle to DNA Structure

Article ID: 714861

Applying the Goldilocks Principle to DNA Structure

University of California San Diego

Inspired by ideas from the physics of phase transitions and polymer physics, researchers at UC San Diego set out to determine the organization of DNA inside the nucleus of a living cell. Their findings suggest that the phase state of the genomic DNA is “just right”—a gel poised at the phase boundary between gel and sol, the solid-liquid phase transition.

Deep Learning Reveals Mysteries of Deep Space

Department of Energy, Office of Science

How do you determine the measurable “things” that describe the nature of our universe? To answer that question, researchers used CosmoFlow, a deep learning technique, running on a National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center supercomputer. They analyzed large, complex data sets from 3-D simulations of the distribution of matter to answer that question. The team showed that CosmoFlow offers a new platform to gain a deeper understanding of the universe.
