What paths do quantum particles, such as atoms or photons, follow through quantum state space? Scientists have used an "artificial atom" to continuously and repeatedly record the paths through quantum state space.
"I believe in what I would call a chitin economy. I personally believe, if properly developed, the material you can develop from chitin and the markets you could sell them in would make the shrimp shell worth more than the meat," said Rogers, an owner and founder of 525 Solutions, a startup company housed in UA's Alabama Innovation and Mentoring of ...

It's a somewhat surprising assertion that almost a fifth of natural products are thought to include a dimerisation step somewhere in their biosynthesis.1 Of course, this is not always apparent at first glance - it's often masked by subsequent modifications - and the ability to spot such 'hidden symmetry' can often lead to strikingly effective total ...
