Smog laid bare: Precise analysis of the composition of particulate matter
(Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences) Smog is a problem. But the knowledge about its constituents -- no longer. Researchers from several leading Warsaw scientific institutions have joined forces and developed a new, extremely precise method for the chemical analysis of suspended particulate matter. The method, easily adaptable in many modern laboratories, not only determines the chemical composition of compounds, but even recognizes changes in the spatial distribution of atoms in molecules.

A new Achilles' heel of blood cancer
(CeMM Research Center for Molecular Medicine of the Austrian Academy of Sciences) Acute Myeloid Leukemia is an aggressive form of blood cancer. The diseased cells often carry mutated forms of a specific gene, which is known to function within large protein networks. Applying a combination of proteomic and genomic screens, researchers at CeMM and LBI-CR identified a protein crucial for the survival of the cancer cells. When this protein is lost, AML cells stop growing and accumulate DNA damage, which makes them more sensitive to anti-cancer drugs. (Source: EurekAlert! - Cancer)
