Algorithm uses mass spectrometry data to predict identity of molecules

An algorithm designed by researchers from Carnegie Mellon University's Computational Biology Department and St. Petersburg State University in Russia could help scientists identify unknown molecules. The algorithm, called MolDiscovery, uses mass spectrometry data from molecules to predict the identity of unknown substances, telling scientists early in their research whether they have stumbled on something new or merely rediscovered something already known. This development could save time and mo...

Historical climate effects of permafrost peatland surprise researchers

Peatlands are an important ecosystem that contribute to the regulation of the atmospheric carbon cycle. A multidisciplinary group of researchers, led by the University of Helsinki, investigated the climate response of a permafrost peatland located in Russia during the past 3,000 years. Unexpectedly, the group found that a cool climate period, which resulted in the formation of permafrost in northern peatlands, had a positive, or warming, effect on the climate.

Investigating carbonate mineral chemical variations to improve oil recovery

Dr. Igor Ivanishin, a postdoctoral researcher in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University, has firsthand experience with the frustrations of oil production. He spent nine years as a hydraulic fracturing engineer with operating and service companies in Russia. A few years ago, he came to Texas A&M to get his doctoral degree while delving into a reoccurring recovery problem in carbonate reservoirs: why don't they produce oil as predicted?

Enzymes of a feather: CRISPR-Cas components work together to enhance protection from viruses

Researchers from Skoltech and their colleagues from Russia and the US have shown that the two components of the bacterial CRISPR-Cas immunity system, one that destroys foreign genetic elements such as viruses and another that creates "memories" of foreign genetic elements by storing fragments of their DNA in a special location of bacterial genome, are physically linked. This link helps bacteria to efficiently update their immune memory when infected by mutant viruses that learned to evade the CR...

'Zombie fires' smolder under the snow during the winter then rise from the dead come spring. They may get far more common.

The 25,000-acre Bogus Creek Fire in Alaska's Yukon Delta National Wildlife Refuge, June 7, 2015. Matt Snyder/Alaska Division of Forestry via AP Most wildfires die out by winter. But "zombie fires" can smolder underground then reignite in spring. Research suggests more zombie fires survive after hotter summers, so they may become more common. Zombie fires happen in northern boreal forests, where the flames feed on peat deep in the soil. See more stories on Insider's business page. ...
