Giulio Regeni was a scientist like us. We hope his cruel death may serve to focus our attention on the need to respect human rights.
SISSA, the International School for Advanced Studies, was founded in 1978 and is a scientific center of excellence within the national and international academic scene. Located in Italy, in the city of Trieste, it features about 65 professors, approximately a 100 post-docs and 250 PhD students. Situated on the scenic Karst upland, the School is surrounded by a 25 acre park, and offers a stunning view of the Gulf of Trieste.
The three main research areas of SISSA are Physics, Neuroscience and Mathematics.
A new study by SISSA brings a new twist to the problem and suggests that the DNA propensity to be supercoiled, just like telephone cords, can come to the rescue. These coils can keep DNA knots locked...
A sophisticated atomic-level computer simulation has allowed researchers from SISSA and the National Research Centre (CNR-IOM - Institute for Materials Manufacturing) to shed light, for the first time, on the function of an important biological system called spliceosome, which works as a highly skilled tailor. The spliceosome is composed of 5 filaments of RNA and hundreds of proteins.
