Neutrons Produce First Direct 3D Maps of Water During Cell Membrane Fusion

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

New 3D maps of water distribution during cellular membrane fusion could lead to new treatments for diseases associated with cell fusion. Using neutron diffraction at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, scientists made the first direct observations of water in lipid bilayers modeling cell membrane fusion.

ORNL-Developed Technology Streamlines Computational Science Projects

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

An ORNL research team led by Jay Jay Billings has continuously updated a workflow management system they first developed in 2010 to help computational scientists develop software, visualize data, and solve problems, saving time and effort expended in support of modeling and simulation experiments. Recently, the team published an article inSoftwareX that both details the history of the system and previews the potential benefits of upcoming versions.

ORNL researchers enable real-time forensic analysis with new cybersecurity tool

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

Researchers at ORNL have developed a new cybersecurity tool called Akatosh that automates the process of analyzing computer networks to detect malware. The tool collects historical information on host systems on the network to immediately show changes that transpired leading up to and during a cyber attack, which saves precious time and resources previously spent manually searching the network for changes.
