Researchers tune in to protein pairsResearchers tune in to protein pairs
Rice University scientists have created a way to interpret interactions among pairs of task-oriented proteins that relay signals. The goal is to learn how the proteins avoid crosstalk and whether they can be tuned for better performance.Each cell contains thousands of these two-component signaling proteins, which often act as sensors and trigger the cell to act.  - See more at: http://news.rice.edu/2014/01/27/researchers-tune-in-to-protein-pairs-2/#sthash.RtcEkPIf.dpuf  (January 27, 2014)

Rice among first to offer Specializations program on Coursera
Rice University's popular online course in interactive programming in Python is being expanded into a three-course series that will give students a chance to pursue a deeper introduction to computer science.The three-part Fundamentals of Computing series is one of the new Specializations programs announced Jan. 21 by Coursera, the California-based online education platform that Rice became a partner of in 2012.    (January 27, 2014)

Tezduyar receives computational mechanics awardTezduyar receives computational mechanics award
Tayfun E. Tezduyar, the James F. Barbour Professor in Mechanical Engineering at Rice University, has received the Computational Mechanics Award from the Japan Association for Computational Mechanics (JACM), the first time the honor has gone to a researcher from outside Japan.The annual awards banquet of the JACM was held Dec. 13 during the 5th Asia Pacific Congress on Computational Mechanics in Singapore. Tezduyar could not attend but Kenji Takizawa, an associate professor in the department of modern mechanical engineering at Waseda University in Tokyo and an adjunct associate professor in mechanical engineering at Rice, accepted the award on his behalf.  (January 27, 2014)

Nano magnets arise at 2-D boundariesNano magnets arise at 2-D boundaries
When you squeeze atoms, you don't get atom juice. You get magnets.  According to a new theory by Rice University scientists, imperfections in certain two-dimensional materials create the conditions by which nanoscale magnetic fields arise.  (November 22, 2013)

K2I Distinguished Lecture: Quantifying Your Superorganism Body Using Big Data Supercomputing, Larry Smarr, PhDK2I Distinguished Lecture: Quantifying Your Superorganism Body Using Big Data Supercomputing", Larry Smarr, PhD
Larry Smarr, Ph.D., began his scientific career as an astrophysicist, studying billions of stars in far-off galaxies. More recently, he's been studying much larger numbers of units closer to home -- his own body.  (November 18, 2013)

Calculations reveal shortcut to characterize zeolitesCalculations reveal shortcut to characterize zeolites
A computational method to quantify the adsorption of gas by porous zeolites should help labs know what to expect before they embark upon slow, costly experiments, according to researchers at Rice University.  (November 15, 2013)

Rice to help bring smallest structures to light Rice to help bring smallest structures to light
Rice University will help probe the structure of ever-smaller molecules as part of a new National Science Foundation (NSF) consortium. The NSF committed $25 million for a Science and Technology Center based at the University at Buffalo to explore the use of strong X-ray lasers to detail the atomic structures of molecules with a resolution approaching the nanoscale.  (November 15, 2013)
