The approach maps the ones the zeros of digital data to the presence or absence of particular molecules in solutions. The researchers used the scheme to encode image files in solutions.

Researchers store digital images inside molecular thumb drive

Scientists at Brown University have taken a step forward toward storing huge amounts of data in molecular storage systems. The study has shown that...
How stuff sticks At very small scales, adhesive forces are dominant. In a finding that could be useful in nanoscale engineering, new research shows how minute amounts of surface roughness can influence stickiness. Kesari Lab / Brown University

Research details sticky situations at the nanoscale

In a new study by Brown University, scientists have shown that small differences in the roughness of surfaces can have important effects on how they...
Two become one Researchers have revealed the structure of proteins that enable sperm cells to fuse with eggs to form a new individual. Fedry et. al.

Study unveils molecular details of sperm-egg fusion

In a new study, scientists at the Brown University portrayed the detailed structure of proteins that empower sperm-egg fusion in two unique species: a flowering...
Quantum heat An image of the experimental setup used to produce evidence of strange quasi-particles called non-Abelian anyons.

New research hints at insane particles, useful in quantum computing

Scientists at the Brown University have measured Heat conduction in an exotic state of matter that focuses on the presence of weird particles that...
Sam Berns and Leslie Gordon Sam Berns passed away due to complications from progeria in 2014. His mother, Dr. Leslie Gordon, is researching new treatments for the condition. She and her colleagues report encouraging new findings today the the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Study offers promising new drug therapy for premature aging disease

A new study by the scientists from the Brown University recommends that a test tranquilize treatment can expand the lives of youngsters with progeria, an...
Push and pull Brown University researchers have shown that the effects of external strain on a catalyst depend on the internal strain exerted by chemical reactants. That new theoretical framework could be useful in optimizing catalysts for different reactions. Peterson lab / Brown University

New theory shows how strain makes for better catalysts

According to a new theory developed by Brown scientists stretching or compressing metal, catalysts can make them perform better. Applying a strain to metal catalysts...
The normal mitochondria, pictured, are found in the cytoplasm of most cells and contain enzymes responsible for energy production. Children born to mothers with mutation-bearing mitochondria can lead to grave, incurable diseases.

Mitochondrial replacement moratorium should be reconsidered, study

Moms with mitochondrial DNA changes frequently bring forth youngsters who confront hopeless and deadly ailments. In any case, a much-contemplated type of mitochondrial substitution...
representations of the world that are useful in planning for multi-step tasks, something that's monumentally difficult for robots to do.

Researchers help robots think and construct abstract

Analysts from Brown University and MIT have built up a strategy for helping robots get ready for multi-step undertakings by developing theoretical portrayals of...
Researchers link Terahertz data around Bend

Researchers link Terahertz data around Bend

A new Brown University shows that terahertz data links are possible even without direct line-of-sight between transmitter and receiver. Through this study, the researchers show that...
