Type II Diabetes and the Alzheimer's Connection: Scientists illustrate for the first time the interactions between amyloid beta and amylin, two proteins that are associated with Alzheimer's disease and type II diabetes respectively. By identifying the "hot regions" that allow one protein to bind to the other, researchers hope to provide insight into the links between these two incurable conditions.

Flight of the Bumblebeewith X-rays: Using ultrafast visualization, researchers examine the alternating actions of two flight muscles used by bumblebees. The work may provide new insights into how motor proteins work on a biochemical level.

Deconstructing Ebola: No vaccine or treatment exists for an infection with the deadly Ebola virus, which causes internal and external bleeding. To better understand how the virus assembles itself, researchers investigate the mechanistic details of a key protein using an interdisciplinary approach.
