Electron-beam radiation can be employed to repair nanostructures through a process known as electron-beam-induced deposition or EBID. In EBID, a focused electron beam is directed at the damaged or missing part of the nanostructure. This beam interacts with a precursor gas, causing a chemical reaction that deposits material and restores the structure. It is a precise and controllable technique, offering the potential to repair or modify nanostructures at a very fine scale, making it valuable in nanotechnology and materials science.
A new tool called iMVP has been developed for the visualization and interpretation of epitranscriptomic data. iMVP uses a nonlinear dimension reduction technique and density-based partition to subtype, visualize, and denoise epitranscriptomic signals. iMVP has been shown to be effective in identifying previously unknown RNA modification motifs and writers, discovering false positives that are undetectable […]
The landscape of bioinformatics tools has witnessed significant evolution, raising questions about the relevance of traditional methods such as Protein BLAST. Developed for sequence alignment and similarity searches, Protein BLAST has long been a cornerstone in bioinformatics. However, as the field progresses, the question arises: is Protein BLAST becoming a relic of the past? Body: […]
Think of using DNA as a super small USB drive for storing information in the future. It’s like having a microscopic bookshelf with tons of books in each DNA strand. But, there are some tricky parts to work out. First, it’s a bit expensive to buy all the tiny ingredients for this DNA recipe. […]
