First 3-D platform for simulating zebrafish behavior may replace animals in some research
Every year, approximately 20 million animals are used in scientific research. Increasingly these animals are zebrafish, which are quickly eclipsing rodents and primates as a favored species in biomedical research because of their genetic similarity to humans and their versatility. However, concerns voiced by policymakers, citizens, and scientific authorities about the number of animals used in experiments have led researchers to explore alternative, computer-based methodologies that could help reduce animal usage without compromising results.

BLAST: Greater speed, accuracy in recognizing brain injury
Modern body armor better protects warfighters against shrapnel from explosive blasts. However, they still face a hidden threat—the resulting blast pressure and shock wave that could cause traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Peptide induces chirality evolution in a single gold nanoparticle
Scientists have created a synthesis method to make optically active and chiral gold nanoparticles using amino acids and peptides for the first time. Many chemicals significant to life have mirror-imaged twins and such characteristics are conventionally called as chirality. This study describes how the chirality, typically observed in organic molecules, can be extended to three-dimensional metallic nanostructures. The research will be published in Nature and featured in its cover.

Can estimates from forensic handwriting experts be trusted in court?
Forensic handwriting specialists are often called on to testify in court about the origins of a few lines of writing, or to determine whether a specific person has written a sentence. Following a new study, researchers are now advising courts to take a cautionary approach when using experience-based likelihood ratios as evidence.

New research seeks to optimize space travel efficiency
(University of Illinois College of Engineering) Sending a human into space and doing it efficiently presents a galaxy of challenges. Koki Ho, University of Illinois assistant professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, and his graduate students, Hao Chen and Bindu Jagannatha, explored ways to integrate the logistics of space travel by looking at a campaign of lunar missions, spacecraft design, and conducting research, published today in the Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets, to create a framework to optimize fuel and other resources.

Graphene changes elastic properties depending on applied force
(AKSON Russian Science Communication Association) A research group, including scientists from Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITF), described a universal feature, in which many unique graphene properties are hidden. The study showed that abnormal graphene behavior can be fully characterised by Poisson ratio, which determines material capability to shrink or extend in transverse dimension. Moreover, the scientists found key factors that can influence this feature. The results are published in Physical Review B.
