It might sound unusual that a researcher mainly focused on population genetics and evolution in marine systems would be assisting with a study on trees in Canada, but there are more similarities than you think.
The Ocean Genome Legacy hosted a Bioblitz, which helps them track precisely what marine life is living where. The participants collected more than a dozen species.
Penny Beuning’s research is based on relationships. Proteins, DNA, RNA in a dance of scientific compatibility. A dance that affects life, the fight against disease and understanding how to create new chemical reactions. An associate professor in Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Northeastern’s College of Science, Beuning’s groundbreaking efforts were documented recently in a paper published in “Structure.” In it, she detailed how various proteins might act in different situations in the lab.
A research team led by Meni Wanunu, assistant professor of physics and chemistry and chemical biology, has found that nanopores made of hafnium oxide slow the passage of DNA and are very stable.
