Back again....

Yet another "quantum effects in photosynthesis" paper.

Waiting for the rampant speculation that can arise from this paper, as well.

Off to troubleshooting the remainder of my afternoon! Read more!

A neat bit of work.

From the people who brought you a structure of an unengineered full-length GPCR in phospholipid bilayers comes a structure of an unengineered full-length mercury transporter in phospholipid bilayers.  Gotta say that this is pretty neat.....

While new technical difficulties are otherwise occupying my efforts, I have enough things in the air to keep me busy.  Speaking of which, back to it! Read more!

Trifling Thoughts.

1.) I really was hoping to go for a couple of more years before having to deal with a poorly behaving high-power RF amplifier.

2.) Whenever someone says that quantum mechanics should be understood at an intuitive level, I wonder if they never had to occasionally take solace in the mathematics earlier on in their education.  While it was fleeting during intro E&M at university, the intermediate E&M class did have me routinely finding some sanity in mathematics.  Perhaps my intuition is just exceptionally poor, of course. 

3.)  Given all the hoo-ha about AFM recently, I thought this was interesting and timely.

And there's a good ending point for today......
