iCeMS Research Animated – Complex Science Simply Explained
iCeMS PIs have published exciting research on many complex topics in the last year. These short animations attempt to explain two of those publications in just one minute each. Prof Fuyuhiko Tamanoi’s work using nanoparticles containing elements like iodine and irradiating them with monochromatic X-rays to generate clouds of electrons inside cancerous cells’ nuclei aims to advance radiation therapy providing new options in cancer treatment. Prof Yuichi Taniguchi and Prof Masae Ohno developed Hi-CO, a new technology which can analyze the 3D-structure of the genome to the nucleosome level. This advanced imaging will bring fresh insights into genome function and expression.
