Making a New Career Path for Myself

I wanted to find out what I had to do in order to get a TEFL certification. I did not even know what this was until I started talking with my cousin on social media. We had lost touch for nearly a dozen years, and I was surprised to find out she was teaching English as a Foreign Language in Thailand. I was so fascinated with the stories she was telling me, and she is the one who inspired me to get my own certification so I could see if I wanted to do the same.

I had a feeling I would because she made it sound so nice.… Read More

High-speed atomic force microscopy takes on intrinsically disordered proteins

KANAZAWA, Japan, Dec. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Kanazawa University’s pioneering high-speed atomic force microscope technology has now shed light on the structure and dynamics of some of life’s most ubiquitous and inscrutable molecules – intrinsically disordered proteins. The study is reported in Nature Nanotechnology.

Our understanding of biological proteins does not always correlate with how common or important they are. Half of all proteins, molecules that play an integral role in cell processes, are intrinsically disordered, which means many of the standard techniques for probing biomolecules don’t work on them. Now researchers at Kanazawa University in Japan have shown that their home-grown high-speed atomic force microscopy technology can provide information not just on the structures of these proteins but also their dynamics.

Understanding how a protein is put together provides valuable clues to its functions. The development of protein crystallography in the 1930s and 1950s brought several protein
