The JPhys series turned 50 this year, so we invited a selection of the best young researchers to contribute to our emerging leaders program. Read our interview with Ruggero Cortini here.
Size matters: Small force sensors reveal big information
Biological cells have a wide range of complex functions, and a number of these are driven by tiny, molecularly generated forces acting within the cell. We asked Dr. Meenakshi Prabhune to talk to us about the latest tools for measuring… Read More ›
Image of the Week: DNA-strand breaks within tissue model after treatment with neutral He gas jet
This week’s image is taken from the recent Emerging Leaders article by Endre J Szili, Nishtha Gaur, et al. It shows DNA-strand breaks within a gelatin tissue model after treatment with a neutral He gas jet. The figure is an overlay of phase-contrast… Read More ›
“Creative projects gave me intuition and insight”: An ergodic generation method for off-lattice walks
Researchers from California develop an efficient, ergodic generation method for off-lattice walks with excluded volume and analyze the effects of thickness on shape and knotting. They spoke to JPhys+ about their recent publication in Journal of Physics A: Mathematical and… Read More ›
British Science Week – Celebrating British Science in Journal of Physics
British Science Week starts on Monday, running from the 10th to the 19th of March. Organised by the British Science Association, British Science Week celebrates science, technology, engineering and mathematics across the UK with events all over the country. Here at JPhys+, we thought this would be a great excuse to highlight a selection of some of the great research produced by our authors based in the UK.
A quantitative understanding of High Fidelity DNA polymerase
How neighbor interactions determine the fidelity of DNA replication
Image of the Week: RNA labelling for tracking single mRNA molecules in live cells
This week, our Image of the Week comes from a recent Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics Topical Review studying the state-of-the-art techniques which are transforming the understanding of mRNA in living cells. Organic dyes and fluorescent proteins are used… Read More ›

JPCM Special Section on Knots
Journal of Physics: Condensed Matter invites readers to explore recent research developments published in our special section on Knots.
JPCM topical review round-up part 5: Are nanopores the key to cheaper genome sequencing?
In the penultimate post of the series I look at a review discussing the state of art of nanopores for cheaper and faster DNA sequencing techniques.
March’s LabTalks in JPCM
Superconducting topological insulators, efficient solar cells and transcription factors acting like buoys. JPCM’s authors explain all in March’s LabTalks.
