Molecular ecosystems that interact and evolve

Scientists have developed a new technique to study the interaction between molecular systems and how these systems adapt to environmental changes. The potential uses are in several fields, such as molecular sensors or the study of the origin of life.

ADN para depositar y organizar moléculas a escalas inferiores a los 10 nanómetros

Científicos han desarrollado este nuevo método que serviría para aplicaciones microelectrónicas y biomédicas, incorporando moléculas de forma ordenada “a la carta”. El trabajo, liderado por el CSIC, se ha publicado en la revista Advanced Materials. Los segmentos de ADN se acoplan entre ellos como piezas de ‘lego’ y pueden usarse como  “adhesivo” para acoplar otras moléculas funcionales o nanomateriales

CarbaZymes project: imitating the chemistry of nature

Imitating the chemistry of nature in order to obtain clean and sustainable chemical processes is the goal of project CarbaZymes, funded in the European EU’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. The consortium held its mid-term review meeting in Brussels, at the Directorate General for Research & Innovation.

Carrying molecules into the skin

Scientists at the CSIC are designing advanced lipid systems for skin treatments. In the last experiment, they have obtained chemical maps of skin samples, which show how the lipid molecules enter the inner skin.

New synthesis method imitates the way molecules were formed at the dawn of life on Earth

Organic molecules can be constructed from smaller ones in prebiotic conditions, very selectively and efficiently and without using organic solvents. The method, presented in Nature Chemistry, uses enzymes modified by "protein engineering".
