Opening door to smaller memory devices, microelectronics, and spintronics — ScienceDaily

A research team led by the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) has created a nanoscale “playground” on a chip that simulates the formation of exotic magnetic particles called monopoles. The study — published recently in Science Advances — could unlock the secrets to ever-smaller, more powerful memory devices, microelectronics, and next-generation…

P. falciparum parasites can develop drug resistance by epigenetic changes in clag3 gene expression — ScienceDaily

Resistance to antimalarial drugs is thought to result mainly from changes in the parasite’s genome. However, P. falciparum can also develop resistance to some antimalarial compounds by epigenetic changes, according to a new study led by ISGlobal, an institution supported by “la Caixa,” and the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM), Antwerp. This is of concern…
