    Tangled Relationships Unpicked: A Statistical Method Discovers Hidden Correlations in Complex Data

    <em>Nature</em> reports on two brothers – David Reshef of MIT's Broad Institute and Harvard, and Yakir Reshef of the Weizmann Institute of Science – who, with their team, have developed a method for extracting otherwise-invisible relationships and trends from complex sets of data. In the era of big data, the method could prove invaluable.

    New Clues Help Doctors Cure Patients, Not Diseases

    Israel21c covers the Nancy and Stephen Grand Israel National Center of Personalized Medicine at the Weizmann Institute, including discussion with Dr. Berta Strulovici, the center’s founding director. The G-INCPM is already studying acute myeloid leukemia, soft-tissue sarcoma, and retinitis pigmentosa.

    Taking an Innovative Nontoxic Approach to Lice

    Lice are a perennial plague upon schoolchildren – and their parents. This is particularly true because the miniscule parasites are very difficult to get rid of. Israel21c reports on two new Israeli methods, including Novokid: developed by Weizmann grads, it's a nontoxic, highly effective treatment system that is on track for approval in Europe and the U.S.

    Israeli Scientist Helps Discover “A Whole New Jupiter”

    Less than a year into its planned three-year study of the planet Jupiter, NASA’s Juno research spacecraft already has revealed or confirmed facts that the Juno Science Team – including Yohai Kaspi of Israel’s Weizmann Institute of Science – could only guess at previously.

    Microscopic Cocoons Made of Silk Protein May Facilitate Drug Design

    Scientists have managed to design microscopic silk capsules that mimic, on a very small scale, the structure of silkworm cocoons. The capsules can serve as a protective environment for the transport of sensitive “cargo” such as natural silk proteins, antibodies, or other delicate molecules. The collaborative research – which was performed by an international team of academics from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel; the Universities of Cambridge, Oxford, and Sheffield in the UK; and the ETH in Switzerland – may lead to a host of applications in the cosmetics, food, and pharmaceutical industries, particularly in the delivery of drugs within the body. The findings were reported in Nature Communications.

    New Technique Improves Properties of Superconductors

    Weizmann Institute of Science and Hebrew University researchers have made the first direct visual observation and measurement of ultra-fast vortex dynamics in superconductors. They say their technique, detailed in the journal Nature Communications, could contribute to the development of novel practical applications by optimizing superconductor properties for use in electronics. Superconductivity is a state of matter in which an electric current can flow with absolutely no resistance. This occurs when certain materials are cooled below a critical temperature. The effect is useful for various applications, from magnetically levitating trains to MRI machines and particle accelerators. It also sparks the imagination with thoughts of lossless power transfer and much faster computation.
