- Scientists unravel genetic basis of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy in Finns February 22, 2019One third of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy cases in Finland are caused by one of the four major mutations, a new study from the University of Eastern Finland and Kuopio University Hospital shows. Overall, 40 percent of patients carried a specific or a likely mutation causing the disease, and 20 percent were carriers of a rare gene mutation whose role in the di […]
- A quantum magnet with a topological twist February 22, 2019Researchers probed a special kind of magnet containing atoms arranged in a pattern called a kagome lattice, which takes its name from a Japanese basket. They found that electrons in this material exhibit exotic behaviors that could be exploited for futuristic applications -- and that under a high magnetic field some electrons in this material act like an ups […]
