Communication with similar people stronger than believed
People’s tendency to communicate with similar people is stronger than earlier believed, which restricts the flow of information and ideas in social networks. These are the findings that an Aalto University research group published this week in an article in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences publication series.
Researchers identify key proteins that help establish cell function
Researchers at the University of California and the University of Eastern Finland have developed a new way to parse and understand how special proteins called "master regulators" read the genome, and consequently turn genes on and off. The Academy of Finland is one of the funders of this research.
Bases produce cloud droplets at concentrations of one part per trillion
Sulphuric acid and dimethylamine work together efficiently in atmospheric conditions to form particles. The results of Cern’s CLOUD Project indicate that both natural amine emissions, as well as those caused by man have an impact on particle formation and, in this way, perhaps influence the formation of cloud droplets and impact the climate. Finnish researchers have had a significant role in th...
