DNA in ‘unbiased’ model curls both waysDNA in ‘unbiased’ model curls both ways
Rice University calculations show chromosomes’ ‘superhelix’ can twist left or right
In 1988, scientists in Switzerland looked through a microscope and saw something they didn’t expect: two sections of an X-shaped chromosome spiraling in opposite directions. Now scientists at Rice University have confirmed that such anomalies are indeed possible.  (June 14, 2016)

Rice University’s single-molecule submersibles gain better fluorescent properties for tracking
The next generation of nanosubmarines being developed at Rice University has been upgraded with tags that fluoresce longer, which enables the submersibles to be tracked for greater periods while being driven through a solution. (June 13, 2016)

Rice University’s custom hydrogel traps water-avoiding molecules for slow delivery
A gap-toothed peptide created by bioengineers at Rice University may be an efficient way to deliver insoluble drugs to precise locations in the body. (June 7, 2016)

Rice, NC State researchers test single-molecule cars in open air
Rice University and North Carolina State University researchers found in recent tests that driving their vehicles in ambient conditions – exposed to open air, rather than a vacuum – got dicey after a time because the hydrophobic single-molecule cars stuck to the “road” and created what amounted to large speed bumps.  (June 1, 2016)

Rice University lab simplifies total synthesis of anti-cancer agent
The lab of Rice University synthetic organic chemist K.C. Nicolaou has reported the streamlined total synthesis of delta12-prostaglandin J3, a molecule previously claimed to kill leukemic cancer cells.  (May 23, 2016)

 

Rice de-icer gains anti-icing propertiesRice de-icer gains anti-icing properties
Dual-function, graphene-based material good for aircraft, extreme environments - See more at: http://news.rice.edu/2016/05/23/rice-de-icer-gains-anti-icing-properties-2/#sthash.RHL3Atqs.dpuf
Rice University scientists have advanced their graphene-based de-icer to serve a dual purpose. The new material still melts ice from wings and wires when conditions get too cold. But if the air is above 7 degrees Fahrenheit, ice won’t form at all.  (May 23, 2016)

Rice University researchers use spectral triangulation to pinpoint location of tumors
Bathing a patient in LED light may someday offer a new way to locate tumors, according to Rice University researchers.  (May 20, 2016)

Rice University scientists identify ‘smoking gun’ in metastasis of hybrid cells
Two-way communication between cancer cells appears to be key to their becoming motile, clustering and spreading through metastasis, according to Rice University scientists.  (May 19, 2016)
