Workshop on reproducible research, July 22

Reproducible research provides transparency that fosters credibility and allows others to replicate findings and build on them. Recent challenges with reliability of published findings led the NIH to issue new requirements designed to enhance reproducability and various scientific journals, including Nature, have introduced new editorial methods to address the problem. But what specific measures should researchers take to meet these new standards? Advanced software products can be used to help investigators adopt reproducibility into their research. One … Read More

New insights on protein movement from the Chapman lab

A study from the Michael Chapman lab titled “Parsimony in protein conformational change,” published in the journal Structure, provides a more complete picture of how proteins move. The researchers used nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to better understand the dynamics of protein movement and thus get a better view of their normal functioning. The team designed a computer method that looks at two different snapshots of the same protein structures. Some of the findings: Minimal torsion … Read More
