In fruit fly egg cells, oskar RNA carries a stamped ticket detailing its destination and guaranteeing it will travel fast enough, scientists at EMBL Heidelberg have found. The study, published in NSMB, provides clues to how a single molecule could receive tickets for different destinations, depending on what type of cell it is in.
Instruct, a new distributed research infrastructure for the science of structural biology, is formally launched today at a signing ceremony in Brussels attended by Stephen Cusack, Head of EMBL Grenoble, and the European Commission Director-General for Research and Innovation, among others.

When Alec Nilson submitted his application for an internship at Google in Oct. 2012, he never imagined that application would send him to Ireland, but, that is exactly what happened.
VALLEY CITY, N.D. - A group of five colleges and universities have announced their intention to form a new athletic conference in the Upper Midwest. This new National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) conference is set to commence with the start of the 2013-14 academic year, and it will be known as the North Star Athletic Association.
A great deal of everyday expression is, strictly speaking, nonsense. But courts and scholars have done little to consider whether or why such meaningless speech, like nonrepresentational art, falls within “the freedom of speech.” If, as many suggest, meaning is what separates speech from sound and expression from conduct, then the constitutional case for nonsense is complicated.
New data from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory suggest a highly distorted supernova remnant may contain the most recent black hole formed in the Milky Way galaxy. The remnant appears to be the product of a rare explosion in which matter is ejected at high speeds along the poles of a rotating star.
A new study using observations from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope reveals the first clear-cut evidence the expanding debris of exploded stars produces some of the fastest-moving matter in the universe. This discovery is a major step toward understanding the origin of cosmic rays, one of Fermi's primary mission goals.
