New Study Shows DNA is Held Together by Hydrophobic Forces

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, have disproved the prevailing theory of how DNA binds itself. It is not, as is generally believed, hydrogen bonds which bind together the two sides of the DNA structure. Instead, water is the key. The discovery opens doors for new understanding in research in medicine and life sciences. The findings are published in PNAS.

Pivotal Moment for ME/CFS at the NIH?

One year to the day of the Report’s initiation, Stephen Roberds, the Chair of the ME/CFS Working Group and an NANDSC Council member, stepped up before the National Advisory Council (NANDSC), the Council through which all NINDS grants, initiatives and projects must pass. Before becoming the group’s chair, Roberds knew nothing about chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), but a year working on the report has convinced him it is a serious and neglected disease.
