Nanoribbons in solutions mimic natureNanoribbons in solutions mimic nature
Rice University scientists test graphene ribbons’ abilities to integrate with biological systems
Graphene nanoribbons (GNRs) bend and twist easily in solution, making them adaptable for biological uses like DNA analysis, drug delivery and biomimetic applications, according to scientists at Rice University.  (August 15, 2016)

 

Rice has key role in new computational science instituteRice has key role in new computational science institute
Molecular Sciences Software Institute will develop tools for complex problems
Rice University is among eight institutions chosen to lead a national effort to transform the field of computational molecular sciences to give scientists new tools to tackle problems that are far too complex to solve with today’s technology, workforce and capabilities.  (July 29, 2016)

 

Rice is No. 2 for most-cited researchers in materials science and engineeringRice is No. 2 for most-cited researchers in materials science and engineering
Rice’s initiative to strengthen its position as one of the nation’s pre-eminent research universities just got a boost: Eight current or former Rice faculty members are on the 2016 list of most-cited researchers in materials science and engineering. Rice has the second-highest number of researchers on the list, just behind Northwestern University, which has 11. (July 21, 2016)

 

Gas sensors ‘see’ through soil to analyze microbial interactionsGas sensors ‘see’ through soil to analyze microbial interactions
Rice University technique could aid agriculture, wastewater, greenhouse gas studies
Rice University researchers have developed gas biosensors to “see” into soil and allow them to follow the behavior of the microbial communities within.  (July 18, 2016)

 

Rice’s ‘antenna-reactor’ catalysts offer best of both worldsRice’s ‘antenna-reactor’ catalysts offer best of both worlds
Technology marries light-harvesting nanoantennas to high-reaction-rate catalysts
In a find that could transform some of the world’s most energy-intensive manufacturing processes, researchers at Rice University’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics have unveiled a new method for uniting light-capturing photonic nanomaterials and high-efficiency metal catalysts.  (July 18, 2016)

 

‘Rivet graphene’ proves its mettle‘Rivet graphene’ proves its mettle
Rice lab shows toughened material is easier to handle, useful for electronics
Nanoscale “rivets” give graphene qualities that may speed the wonder material’s adoption in products like flexible, transparent electronics, according to researchers at Rice University.  (July 14, 2016)

 

Amyloid probes gain powers in search for Alzheimer’s causeAmyloid probes gain powers in search for Alzheimer’s cause
Rice University lab’s molecule offers real-time monitoring of plaques implicated in disease
A metallic molecule being studied at Rice University begins to glow when bound to amyloid protein fibrils of the sort implicated in Alzheimer’s disease. When triggered with ultraviolet light, the molecule glows much brighter, which enables real-time monitoring of amyloid fibrils as they aggregate in lab experiments. (July 7, 2016)

 

Proteins put up with the roar of the crowdProteins put up with the roar of the crowd
Rice University simulations show dynamics support efficient binding on DNA
It gets mighty crowded around your DNA, but don’t worry: According to Rice University researchers, your proteins are nimble enough to find what they need.  (June 23, 2016)
