Reacting to membrane stress -
Molecular dynamics simulations revealed that the amphipathic helix imposed a kinked and tilted orientation of the TMH region within the lipid bilayer, which enforced local membrane compression, in particular in the thicker, more ordered membrane domains.

Seeing in the dark: Minus sunlight, a general theory reveals universal patterns in ecology - Science Daily

Science Daily
For roughly ten years, ecologist John Harte has been developing a maximum entropy theory of ecology (METE). Drawing on principles from thermodynamics, information theory, and the maximum information entropy (MaxEnt) inference procedure, Harte says ...

Using biology to justify the gender gap in tech is wrong—and not just because the science is bad - Quartz

There are a lot of controversial statements in the leaked diversity memo written by Google engineer James Damore—most notably, his theory that the gender gap in tech could be attributed to biological differences between men and women. “The ...
