Hexbyte Glen Cove Machine-learning model helps determine protein structures

Credit: Unsplash/CC0 Public Domain Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) allows scientists to produce high-resolution, three-dimensional images of tiny molecules such as proteins. This technique works best for imaging proteins that exist in only one conformation, but MIT researchers have now developed a machine-learning algorithm that helps them identify multiple possible structures that a protein can take....

Hexbyte Glen Cove Model predicts where ticks, Lyme disease will appear next in Midwest states

Entomology professor Brian Allan and his colleagues built a model that can accurately predict future occurrences of black-legged ticks in the Midwest. Credit: L. Brian Stauffer By drawing from decades of studies, scientists created a timeline marking the arrival of black-legged ticks, also known as deer ticks, in hundreds of counties across 10 Midwestern...
