A Greener Approach to Uranium Mining

Preserving biodiversity on the path towards sustainable energy Biodiversity is at the heart of how we source our energy. Whether it be fossil fuels or renewables, energy sourcing comes with altering our natural ecosystems and results in a reduction in biodiversity. In the plausible scenario where future energy schemes not only include nuclear but give…

Climate Change Takes Centre Stage

When talking about environmental issues, climate change often dominates the conversation. A recent book published by Guillaume Sainteny called Le climat qui cache la forêt (‘The Climate which Hides the Forest’) presents some of the flaws of current environmental politics. Sainteny writes of a hierarchy within the debate, using three examples (biodiversity, air pollution and … Continue reading Climate Change Takes Centre Stage

  • Protein Structure Prediction
    A computational approach to the holy grail of biochemistry: structure determination As a child, armed with a glue stick and a pair of scissors, I would spend hours cutting bright coloured paper into long uniform strips. The ends of each rectangle were secured tightly with a dollop of glue to form rings. Slowly, one ring … Continue reading Protein Structure Prediction
  • Can You Spot the Difference?
    Symmetry is a concept introduced at school and never really revisited. Its importance isn’t grasped and often remains in the form of trivial ‘Spot the Difference’ puzzles on the bottom page of a newspaper. Even on the smallest scale of life, symmetry is relevant. It is a tool that can be used to differentiate and … Continue reading Can You Spot the Difference?
