Mysterious cellular droplets come into focus

Wednesday, September 9, 2020 - 16:10 in Physics & Chemistry

Researchers are shedding light on a type of membrane-less organelle, known as biological condensates, that play a role in DNA repair and aging. Using the Frontera supercomputer, biophysicists performed coarse-grained molecular dynamics of one particular biomolecular condensate -- fused in sarcoma (FUS). They have now outlined a phase diagram showing the physical states of the condensate under different conditions of temperature and pressure.
