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)

Rice University-based models simulate how nucleosomes facilitate gene exposure
The protein complex that holds strands of DNA in compact spools partially disassembles itself to help genes reveal themselves to specialized proteins and enzymes for activation, according to Rice University researchers and their colleagues. (June 21, 2016)

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)
