Untangler of Knots: The Amazing Topoisomerase Molecular Machine

New graphic animation by the Discovery Institute's Center for Science & Culture illustrates the carefully orchestrated untangling activity of topoisomerase II, a molecular machine that only works because its amino acid sequence is highly specified to provide a special shape and structure necessary for its function—a hallmark of intelligent design.

Temporal Evolution of Cooling by Natural Convection in an Enclosed Magma Chamber

Heating and cooling of magma (liquid rock) is an important topic of research for those studying igneous (granitic/volcanic type) rocks. One piece of the puzzle is understanding the role of magma movement, and the associated flow of heat by convection, in a magma chamber, although whether large magma chambers even exist is a significant point of discussion in the igneous petrology community. Dr. Carlos Zambra and Dr. Luciano González recently published a paper funded through the Geoscience Research Institute that does some computer modeling of these processes for a selected granitic body in Peru.
