Gabriel Ortega: “How Do Halophiles Endure Extreme Salinity?”

The slow but unstoppable progress of evolution has enabled, step by step, mutation after mutation, the conquest of virtually all ecosystems on Earth. Even in those places where conditions are far from “standard”, where the presence of organisms seems unthinkable, life has found its way. These small conquerors are called extremophiles. Thus we find thermophilic organisms that […]

From Russia with Love… for Science

The structural biologist and X-ray spectroscopist talks about her love for biology since she was a child, her interest for systems and logic, soviet-style education, her hunger for knowledge, her role models and much more. Read the wise words of this […]

Diamonds Increase Sensitivity of NMR and MRI

Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley have hyperpolarized carbon-13 nuclei in diamonds at room temperature and using microwaves. The signal of the hyperpolarized spins showed a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) signal several times higher than the one obtained by standard magnetic […]
