New crystal structures reveal a mysterious mechanism of gene regulation by the "magic spot"
New crystal structures reveal a mysterious mechanism of gene regulation by the "magic spot" 22 February 2018Using an innovative crystallization technique, an international team of researchers, led by scientists at Penn State, has revealed new insights into the long debated action of the “magic spot”—a molecule that controls gene expression in Eschericahia coli and other bacteria when the bacteria are stressed.
Big black holes outpace their galaxies in growth
Big black holes outpace their galaxies in growth 15 February 2018The growth of the biggest black holes in the universe is outrunning the growth of the galaxies that they inhabit, according to a new study led by researchers at Penn State.
Deep-sea fish use hydrothermal vents to incubate eggs
Deep-sea fish use hydrothermal vents to incubate eggs 12 February 2018An international team of researchers, including Penn State biologist Charles Fisher, discovered egg cases of deep-sea fish near hydrothermal vents. The team believes that deep-sea skates use the warm water near the vents to accelerate the typically years-long incubation time of the eggs.
