Manufacture of light-activated proteins
A new strategy for designing light-sensitive proteins has been developed by researchers at Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Such proteins, also known as optogenetic tools, can be switched on and off through light impulses, thus triggering specific cellular processes. So far, researchers developing optogenetic tools have been pretty much forced to resort to trial-and-error. A combination of computer-aided and experimental methods has now paved the way for a more targeted approach. (2019-08-02)

(2019-01-30)

Defending against cyberattacks by giving attackers 'false hope'
'The quarantine is a decoy that behaves very similar to the real compromised target to keep the attacker assuming that the attack is still succeeding. In a typical cyberattack the more deeply attackers go in the system, the more they have the ability to go many directions. It becomes like a Whack-A-Mole game for those defending the system. Our strategy simply changes the game, but makes the attackers think they are being successful.' (2019-01-28)

Treat-to-target strategy in gout management is effective
Gout is the most common form of inflammatory arthritis, caused by crystallization of uric acid in the joint. Rheumatologists have long recommended that patients with gout be treated with drugs to lower uric acid in their blood to prevent crystallization. Specifically, rheumatology societies around the world recommend that uric acid should be lowered to below 6mg/dL because that's below the concentration at which uric acid can crystallize. This strategy is known as 'treat-to-target.' (2018-10-18)

Physicists train robotic gliders to soar like birds
Scientists know that upward currents of warm air assist birds in flight.
