Research from more than 100 scientists across the world, including that of Clemson professor of biological sciences Saara DeWalt, has recently combined to show that the world's tropical forests are more similar than scientists previously thought.
A team of scientists from Clemson University and Cornell University is developing the first set of computational techniques that can predict how DNA mutations affect proteins and protein-to-protein interactions, which are vital in determining how the body’s tissues and organs function. Their study also holds the potential to accelerate the synthesis of new drug treatments for a variety of genetic disorders.
Vaidehi Paliya, a postdoctoral researcher in physics and astronomy, recently discovered seven galaxies that could potentially shake up what astrophysicists thought they knew about how the size of a galaxy – and the black hole at its center – can affect its behavior.
