16:23 Aps.org Editors' SuggestionsDiagnosing phases of magnetic insulators via noise magnetometry with spin qubits

Author(s): Shubhayu Chatterjee, Joaquin F. Rodriguez-Nieva, and Eugene Demler Two-dimensional magnetic insulators exhibit a plethora of competing ground states, such as ordered (anti)ferromagnets, exotic quantum spin liquid states, and random singlet phases. Spin liquids, in particular, are collective phases of matter which have eluded discovery for several decades. Although there are many promising candidate materials for their realization, the central challenges for the clear diagnosis of a spin liquid has been the lack of experimental probes to access their emergent excitations. Here, the authors propose that spin qubit magnetometers grant access to these excitations and, therefore, can be used as a diagnostic of ground states in magnetic insulators.

Researchers are shedding new light on how animals perform whole-body regeneration, and uncovered a number of DNA switches that appear to control genes used in the process. When it comes to regeneration, some animals are capable of amazing feats -- if you cut the leg off a salamander, it will grow back. When threatened, some geckos drop their tails as a distraction, and regrow them later.
Other animals take the process even further. Planarian worms, jellyfish, and sea anemones can actually regenerate their entire bodies after being cut in half.
Led by Assistant Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology Mansi Srivastava, a team of researchers is shedding new light on how animals pull off the feat, and uncovered a number of DNA switches that appear to control genes for whole-body regeneration. The study is described in a March 15 paper in Science.

23:23 ScienceDaily.comRejection of transplanted organs: Long-awaited structure offers new insights

One third of organ transplants are lost to transplant rejection. Although acute transplant rejection responds relatively well to steroids, chronic rejection (which is mainly mediated by antibodies) has no effective treatment. A newly discovered structure has revealed unexpected insights about the how antibodies in the recipient (alloantibodies) bind to the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) on the transplant. These insights will inform the development of novel therapies for chronic rejection.
