Naturally occurring DNA is a thicket, but its high tension and constant motion make it shuttle large transcriptions factors through its dense windings to binding sites, where the factors go to work. Researchers back this hypothesis with a very large, unique simulation. Here, DNA is in gray, transcription factor LacI in green.
Combining a new hydrogel material with a protein that boosts blood vessel growth could improve the success rate for transplanting insulin-producing islet cells into persons with type 1 diabetes. In an animal model, the technique enhanced the survival rate of transplanted insulin-producing cells, restoring insulin production in response to blood glucose levels and curing these diabetic animals.
A new vulnerability affecting Android mobile devices results not from a traditional bug, but from the malicious combination of two legitimate permissions that power desirable and commonly-used features in popular apps.
Five swarm quadcopters zip back and forth in formation, then change their behaviors based on user commands — with no crashes.

A recap of the 2017 InVenture Prize, which was won by CauteryGuard.
China's severe winter air pollution problems may be worsened by changes in atmospheric circulation prompted by Arctic sea ice loss and increased Eurasian snowfall – both caused by global climate change.
CPR+ is a CPR mask with LED lights that offers user feedback throughout the resuscitation process. The device is one of six inventions is competing for Georgia Tech’s 2017 InVenture Prize.
The other inventors are: Dave Ehrlich, a computer engineering major; Samuel Clarke, a mechanical engineering and computer science major; and Ryan Williams, a computer engineering major.
