Nanoscale vortices known as skyrmions can be created in many magnetic materials. For the first time, researchers have managed to create and identify antiferromagnetic skyrmions with a unique property: critical elements inside them are arranged in opposing directions. Scientists have succeeded in visualizing this phenomenon using neutron scattering.
Proper folding of extremely long chromosomal DNA molecules is crucial for the correct functioning of the cell. Scientists developed a groundbreaking method to map contact points between replicated DNA molecules, thereby elucidating how the genome is folded inside the nucleus of human cells.

Thieves Fail to Auction Bruce Springsteen’s Legal DocumentsCyber-criminals hoping to profit from the theft of Bruce Springsteen’s legal documents were left disappointed when an online auction of the data attracted no buyers. The singer’s documents were among a 756GB cache of data swiped from New York City law firm Grubman Shire […]
Although people of any age can become infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, elderly patients face a higher risk of severity and death than younger patients. New research comparing the immune response among age groups may help explain why. Older patients with the disease have lower frequencies of […]
