Genetic circuit balances individual freedom and collective good

An intriguing investigation of bacterial genetic circuitry suggests that even the simplest creatures can make difficult choices that strike a balance between selflessness and selfishness. In a new study in Scientific Reports, researchers from Rice University, Tel Aviv University and Harvard Medical School show how sophisticated genetic circuits allow an individual bacterium within a colony […]

Exciton-based circuits promise leap in computer speed

Physicists at the University of California, San Diego, have successfully created super-fast integrated circuits with particles called “excitons,” bringing the possibility of a new type of extremely fast computer based on excitons closer to reality. Their discovery, detailed in the journal Nature Photonics, follows the team’s demonstration last summer of an exciton-based integrated circuit capable […]
