Newswise: Contest showcases winning green fluorescent protein images, videos

Contest showcases winning green fluorescent protein images, videos

American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB)

Earlier this year, the call went out to the worldwide scientific community to submit their most beautiful and intriguing images and videos created using green fluorescent protein (GFP), the glowing molecule that revolutionized cell imaging 25 years ago. Now the votes are in, and the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB), its Public Information Committee, and the public have determined the winners in each category.

Newswise: The Beauty of Imperfections: Linking Atomic Defects to 2D Materials’ Electronic Properties

The Beauty of Imperfections: Linking Atomic Defects to 2D Materials’ Electronic Properties

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Scientists at Berkeley Lab have revealed how atomic defects emerge in transition metal dichalcogenides, and how those defects shape the 2D material’s electronic properties. Their findings could provide a versatile yet targeted platform for designing 2D materials for quantum information science.

Melting Mongolian Ice Patches May Threaten Reindeer Pastoralism, Archeological Artefacts

PLOS

Northern Mongolian “eternal ice” is melting for the first time in memory, threatening the traditional reindeer-herding lifestyle and exposing fragile cultural artifacts to the elements, according to a study published November 20, 2019 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by William Taylor from the Max Planck Institute, Germany, and the University of Colorado-Boulder, USA, and colleagues.

Newswise: Virtual and mixed reality inferior to traditional learning in anatomy education

Virtual and mixed reality inferior to traditional learning in anatomy education

McMaster University

The McMaster study compared an MR model (Microsoft HoloLens) and a VR model (HTC VIVE) derived from a physical model to the actual model. The researchers focused on overall learning performance and the effects of stereopsis by using a strategy where the non-dominant eye was covered in one test condition.
