  • The protein-protein interaction between mutated Ras and Raf has been shown to prevent a cell from turning one switch off, leading to the uncontrolled cell growth of cancer.[3]
  • Researchers found that computer programs commonly used to scan DNA missed 29 to 61 percent of regulatory DNA.[4]
  • Physicists complete the first quantum calculation – finding the prime factors of 15 – as a proof of concept to show if more complicated quantum computers are made cryptography based on large primes would be vulnerable.[5]
