Alya Red, a project of the Barcelona Supercomputing Center that tries to understand the wondrous organ that is the heart and when the mechanism fails. The simulator generates electrical signals to try and exactly mimic the speed at which the signals propagate across the heart. An attempt to create an accurate electro-mechanical model of a heartbeat all with the help of 10,000 processors.
These four biological molecules are essential to all life on Earth.
They originated more than 3 Billion years ago during the Proterozoic Era, in a common ancestor of Bacteria, Archaea, and Eukaryota. Together these molecules form the fundamental pattern of the fractal of life; they are specialized machines that replicate each other and produce an endless variety of new forms. They have evolved over trillions of generations into extraordinarily complex arrangements that consume energy, organize themselves, and reproduce.
A team of brain cancer researchers at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center has effectively treated brain tumor cells using a unique combination of diet and radiation therapy. The study, “The Ketogenic Diet Is an…
