Mapping DROSHA's Cleavage Sites

Mapping DROSHA's Cleavage Sites IBS scientists develop a new method to understand what and where the DROSHA protein is cuttingEach cell of our body is the result of an orchestra of sophisticated mechanisms that control which genes are and are not expressed at any given time. Partly, this is possible thanks to the coordination of several types of RNA molecules, like microRNAs (miRNAs).DETAIL VIEW

New Protein Regulated by Cellular Starvation

New Protein Regulated by Cellular StarvationIBS biologists discover a new and unexpected function of a DNA repair protein.
Researchers at the Center of Genomic Integrity, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS), have found out an unexpected role for a protein involved in the DNA repair mechanism. This protein called SHPRH not only helps fixing damages during DNA replication, but also contributes to the generation of new ribosomes, the cell's "protein factories".

DNA Misspelling Correction Method is Very Accurate

DNA Misspelling Correction Method is Very AccurateIBS scientists prove that a gene editing technique used for substituting a single nucleotide in the genome is highly accurate.
Researchers at the Center for Genomic Engineering, within the Institute of Basic Science (IBS) proved the accuracy of a recently developed gene editing method. This works as DNA scissors designed to identify and substitute just one nucleotide among the 3 billion nucleotides of our genome.

Reaching the Optimal Theoretical Thickness of Ferroelectric Capacitors

Reaching the Optimal Theoretical Thickness of Ferroelectric CapacitorsIBS scientists solve the thickness problem of ferroelectric capacitors, opening the possibility to revive FeRAM.
Most of our computers, cameras, phones and other electronic devices, contain a silicon-based memory called Flash. Only in some cases, another type of memory technology is used: the Ferroelectric RAM (FeRAM). Developed 10 years ago, FeRAM was surpassed by Flash and never really took off. Although FeRAM has lower power usage and faster writing performance, it suffers from some flaws.

Decorating Single Layer and Bilayer Graphene with Useful Chemical Groups

Decorating Single Layer and Bilayer Graphene with Useful Chemical GroupsIBS scientists develop a new platform to attach chemical groups on graphene lying on a silica/silicon substrate.
Researchers at the Center for Multidimensional Carbon Materials, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) at Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology disclosed a new method to add chemical groups on (that is, to "functionalize") single layer (SLG) and bilayer (BLG) graphene lying on silica/silicon.

Clarifying how lithium ions ferry around in rechargeable batteries

Clarifying how lithium ions ferry around in rechargeable batteriesIBS scientists observe the real-time ultrafast bonding of lithium ions with the solvents, in the same process that happens during charging and discharging of lithium batteries, and conclude that a new theory is needed.
Although most of our electronic devices, like mobile phones, laptops and electric vehicles use lithium rechargeable batteries, what is going on inside them is not fully understood. Researchers from the Center for Molecular Spectroscopy and Dynamics, within the Institute for Basic Science (IBS) succeeded in observing in realtime the ultrafast dynamics of lithium ions with femtosecond time resolution (1/1,000,000,000,000,000 of a second).
