Dr. Robert Spitale and Collegues Discover New DNA Chemical Modification Important for Learning and Memory

Dr. Robert Spitale and Colleagues Discover New DNA Chemical Modification Important for Learning and Memory Robert Spitale, Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and colleagues have discovered a new DNA Chemical Modification that is pertinent to learning and memory. Dr. Spitale and colleagues describe their study results in an advanced online publication in Nature Neuroscience . These results expand the scope of DNA modifications in the adult brain and highlight changes in m6dA as an epigenetic mechanism associated with activity-induced gene expression and the formation of fear extinction memory. “We have known for some time that chemical modifications in DNA can control [...]

Dr. David Mobley Helps Spearhead New Open Force Field Consortium

Dr. DAVID MOBLEY HELPS SPEARHEAD NEW OPEN FORCE FIELD CONSORTIUM Dr. David Mobley was recently involved in the launch of a new pharma-funded research initiative with the Molecular Software Sciences Institute (“The MolSSI”). Mobley was one of two academics spearheading the new Open Force Field Consortium. The Consortium was designed to bring together researchers from both academia and the industry to collaborate and improve computer models used to guide pharmaceutical drug discovery. “Force fields represent the foundation of molecular simulations and modeling — a real community resource. Everyone uses them, but improving them is an often unglamorous task.” Says Mobley “We’re [...]
