About a third of bacterial proteins are either transported across or integrated into the cell membranes, so that they can perform functions that are vital for bacterial survival in specific environmental niches. Directional transport of selected proteins often relies on large membrane-embedded biomolecular assemblies. For example, the dual membrane-spanning Type 3 Secretion System (T3SS) enables ...

Microtubules are dynamic polymers composed of tubulin subunits which are organized in a highly controlled dense network. Individual microtubules undergo dynamic instability: they stochastically switch between growing and shrinking at the microtubule tip. This seems to imply that the control of the network dynamics occurs at the filament tips, while the tube itself ("the shaft") ... Read more about "Microtubule shaft dynamics"

Abstract : The life of any organism depends on the ability of cells to accurately recognize and eliminate harmful microbes. In order to detect the immense repertoire of pathogenic entities, the innate immune system of mammals has evolved a range of distinct sensing strategies. One major mechanism is based on the recognition of microbial DNA ... Read more about "Innate DNA sensing through the cGAS-STING system - Blurring the boundary between PAMP and DAMP"

We propose a novel deep learning tool for materials discovery. The approach merges together both experimental data and computer simulations to exploit all possible sources of information. The tool has been used to design several materials that have been experimentally verified and patented. We present just one case study where we discover and characterize the ...

Electroencephalography and surface electromyography are notoriously cumbersome technologies. A typical setup may involve bulky electrodes, dandling wires, and a large amplifier unit. The wide adaptation of these technologies in numerous applications has been accordingly fairly limited. Thanks to the availability of printed electronics technologies, it is now possible to dramatically simplify these techniques. Elegant electrode ...

Geometrically frustrated assemblies Abstract: Unlike Lego bricks that perfectly assemble next to one another, in molecular assemblies some misfit is almost always present. The molecular constituents thus must distort in order to form an aggregate, resulting in a frustrated assembly. The generation of geometric frustration from the intrinsic geometry of the constituents of a material ... Read more about "IGM Colloquium: Prof. Efi Efrati, Weizmann Institute of Science, ISR"

Microscopy has fueled biological discoveries for centuries, but technical progress during the last decades has greatly expanded the type and quantity of biological information that can be revealed by imaging. Advances in instrumentation, labeling and computation are driving an imaging data tsunami on par with that of DNA sequencing. We illustrate this trend and discuss ...

This seminar will be live-streamed at the following link: https://epfl.zoom.us/j/227165800 In today’s increasingly globalised and complex economy that is flooded with data, taking decisions is a much more complex task. To help managers to tackle this challenge, we have developed a new multi-criteria performance management method that provides input for visual management and continuous improvement ...
