Microbial Mysteries on the Seafloor

Sonal Butala 22′ Scientists aboard Schmidt Ocean Institute’s research vessel Falkor have recently discovered and explored a stunning hydrothermal field in the Gulf of California 2,000 meters below the surface. These newly discovered geological formations feature upside-down mirror pools and towering mineral structures as biological hotspots for life. While exploring … Continue reading

Artificial Membraneless Organelle Carries Out Complex Biochemical Pathways

By Chengzi Guo ‘22 Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have recently created a novel synthetic organelle system made of localized membraneless solutions that can carry out biological processes. It has long been assumed that the compartmentalization of cells functions to create chemical environments that facilitate and regulate crucial … Continue reading
