Iscrizioni ancora aperte per MHPC

Ancora aperte le iscrizioni al Master in High Performance Computing (MHPC) organizzato da SISSA e ICTP. Grande l’attenzione posta dagli organizzatori verso le candidature di studenti regionali. Per presentare questa opportunità  ai giovani studenti FVG verranno infatti organizzati incontri nelle università e negli istituti di ricerca regionali, dove i docenti spiegheranno le finalità del master e le allettanti prospettive occupazionali.

Lezioni di Data Journalism alla SISSA

Il giornalismo è entrato nell'era dei dati: statistiche, data mining, infografiche richiedono competenze che oggi devono fare parte del curriculum del reporter. La preparazione richiesta per queste attività non sempre però entra nella formazione classica del giornalista, per questo motivo il Master in Comunicazione della Scienza della SISSA di Trieste organizza la Scuola Estiva di Data Journalism, che si terrà a Trieste dal 17 al 19 settembre 2014. 

JCOM Masterclasses: only few days left to sign up

Only few days left to sign up to the JCOM Masterclasses. Four courses aimed at scientists, cultural managers, public sector and education professionals, architects, designers, journalists, museum workers and other specialists dealing with scientific/technological communication. These are the JCOM Masterclasses, top-level international training courses held by academics and professionals selected from among the greatest experts in the field.

Gli istituti di ricerca FVG insieme per JuMBO

Quattro tra i maggiori istituti del Friuli Venezia Giulia danno il via al nuovo corso di PhD JuMBO, iniziativa di eccellenza e particolarmente innovativa nell'ambito della Biologia Molecolare.

SISSA dedicates its Main Lecture Hall to Paolo Budinich

On May 6, the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste will be paying tribute to the physicist and SISSA founder Paolo Budinich, who died last November, by dedicating the School's Main Lecture Hall to him. The ceremony will take place at 12 noon.

At the origin of cell division

Movement and the ability to divide are two fundamental traits of living cells. The origin of these abilities could rely on very simple physical mechanisms, which have been simulated by scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste in a study just published in Physical Review Letters.

Technical tests of biodiversity

A team of physicists from SISSA and the Polytechnic University of Turin has developed and analysed a model that simulates the effect of migration on the genetic biodiversity of populations, and discovered that the effect is all but trivial.

One gene, many tissues

A map of how genes vary in biological tissues: a huge project that required the collaboration of dozens of laboratories worldwide, including the Neurogenomics Laboratory of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste.

This is the result of a study just published in Nature by the FANTOM consortium (and signed by over two hundred authors). It is only the first of a series of more specific papers that will focus on how the single genes work in each type of tissue.

Simple, like a neutron star

For astrophysicists neutron stars are extremely complex astronomical objects. Research conducted with the collaboration of SISSA and published in the journal Physical Review Letters demonstrates that in certain respects these stars can instead be described very simply and that they show similarities with black holes.

Like being inside a star

What happens to hydrogen when it is subjected to the same pressures as reached inside a planet? Scientists from SISSA simulated this situation to verify if and when hydrogen becomes "metallic". The paper has been published in the journal Nature Communications.
