A trick to fold proteins more quickly

A team of researchers of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste and of University of Cambridge have devised a method to reduce the time used to simulate how proteins take on their signature three-dimensional shape.

Such important information to comprehend their function is usually obtained using often very costly experimental techniques.

A network in Vietnam

SISSA has always kept focus on the international scientific scene. In such a vein, a recent activity was the creation of a network with some research institutes in Vietnam in view of top-level training in the field of Functional and Structural Genomics.

Two professors of the PhD course in Functional and Structural Genomics at SISSA, Giuseppe Legname (SISSA) and Paolo Carloni (German Research School for Simulation Sciences, Jülich), recently went to Ho Chi Min City to organize a Neurobiology course, dealing with both experimental and computational aspects.

How do cold ions slide

One of the challenges faced by those who study friction is finding a connection between the phenomena observed within the macroworld and those in the nanoworld.

The stick-slip, a phenomenon observed at every scale when two surfaces slide on one another, could be the starting point to identify such connection. The scientists at SISSA have studied such phenomenon through a system of "trapped cold ions".

Scientists illustrate Planck’s Universe

Wednesday April 10th at 11am 
SISSA - Main Lecture Hall

A few days after the publication in the Astronomy & Astrophysics review of the results of the first fifteen months of observation carried out by the Planck satellite, a public conference has been held at SISSA. The scientists of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) of Trieste and of INAF-Osservatorio Astronomico di Trieste (INAF-OATS) have shown and illustrated to the audience the image of the "child" Universe as observed by the instruments onboard the Planck satellite.

Il rogo di Città della Scienza

Il giorno 4 marzo 2013, Città della Scienza il museo interattivo di Napoli, il più grande del nostro Paese, in una sola notte è stato distrutto da un incendio, di probabile origine dolosa. È una perdita enorme per la vita culturale della citta di Napoli e dell'Italia intera. Il Direttore della SISSA, Guido Martinelli esprime la solidarietà della Scuola per Città della Scienza, augurando una rapida ricostruzione del Museo.
