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.

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.

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.

It looks like rubber but isn’t

Researchers at SISSA are developing fast and efficient numerical methods to study the behaviour of molecules and materials. The latest work by Angelo Rosa, published in the journal Physical Review Letters, simulated the behaviour of concentrated solutions of "circular" polymers, providing a far more accurate description of the behaviour of these materials than available in the past.
