Virtual drug screening identifies possible new antidepressants in LSD-like molecules

What’s a hallucinogen without the hallucinations? Perhaps a potent and fast-acting antidepressant, according to a new study based on virtual drug screening. Psychedelic drugs are now widely understood to have striking antidepressant effects, so a group of computational biologists sought to determine whether any new, LSD-adjacent molecules might have other medicinal powers. In work published […]

What is the role of N-glycans and calnexin-calreticulin chaperones in SARS-CoV-2 spike maturation?

A new study showed that SARS-CoV-2 Spike N-glycosylation patterns, intracellular lectins, and the associated molecular chaperones play crucial roles in the viral-host-cell invasion and function.

Sex differences in sprint running performance may be relatively small

Conventional wisdom holds that men run 10-12 percent faster than women regardless of the distance raced. But new research suggests that the between-sex performance gap is much narrower at shorter sprint distances.

People Are Loving the World’s Biggest Four-Day Work Week Trial

Three and a half months ago, the biggest four-day work week trial in the world to date kicked off in the UK. Over 3,300 employees from 70 different companies—including everything from large corporations to small neighborhood pubs—started getting 100 percent of their pay for working 80 percent of their typical schedule. Sounds like a pretty […]

Live imaging and cellular barcoding reveal how new stem cells are vetted for quality

Using live imaging and cellular barcoding, researchers in the Stem Cell Program at Boston Children’s Hospital have glimpsed how new stem cells -; in this case, blood stem cells -; are vetted for quality soon after they’re born.

Scalable and fully coupled quantum-inspired processor solves optimization problems

Annealing processors are more energy efficient and quicker at solving mathematical optimization problems than PCs. Researchers at Tokyo University of Science have now developed a new approach to realizing scalable fully coupled annealing processors. These quantum-inspired systems can model the interactions between magnetic spins and use it to solve complex optimization problems. The new method […]
