A New Approach To Evaluating Protein Interactions From A New Perspective To Big Data Records

A cluster map showing the profiles of bait proteins (series) associated with human DNA repair and epigenetic proteins (Pillars), which on a high topological rating (TopS) values. Yellow (high TopS score) indicates a higher preference for protein interaction. Picture credits: The Washburn Lab, Stowers Institute for Medical Research. Researchers at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research have created a new …

DNA Barcoding at the Protein Level Identifies Key Cancer Immunity Genes

A novel technology for simultaneously analyzing the functions of hundreds of genes at single-cell resolution has been developed by scientists at Mount Sinai Hospital. The method relies on a barcoding approach using a novel protein. Since the sequencing of the first human genome in the early 2000s yielded a lot more than 20,000 protein-coding genes, scientists were not yet able …

Migratory birds rely on the magnetic compass in their eye

Have you ever wondered how birds know how to fly south for the winter and then return to the north every summer? Navigation is based on different senses: many birds use a sun compass, others rely on visual landmarks and olfactory cues Some trust magnetoreception – the ability to detect a magnetic field to sense direction, altitude or position. (Unfortunately, …

Birds have an "internal compass" protein that allows them to perceive the earth's magnetic field

We assume that different species of birds "fly south for the winter", but how do they navigate over long distances? Different migratory animals have many different methods, but the bird method seems to be cooler than we assumed. Scientists have suspected for some time that birds can sense and respond to Earth's magnetic field by relying on an internal compass …

Scientists identify protein that could make birds see magnetic fields

A rock pigeon studies quantum mekane, art. Photo: Alan D. Wilson (Wikimedia Commons) Birds probably know quantum physics better than many humans – it just comes from house to house. To help them travel long distances across the globe, it is believed that birds have proteins in their eyes that could make them literally see the earth's magnetic field, a …
