Ian Swanson: Tangled Physics: Superstring Theory and the AdS/CFT Conjecture
on: Caltech
Ian Swanson, a graduate student in physics at Caltech, discusses the quantum field theory is known as the Standard Model of particle physics, providing the most accurate physical predictions in the history of science. Physicists must now unite the Standard Model with the tenets of general relativity, and string theory is arguably the most promising candidate of the last 50 years.

Replikin genome sequences and survival rates in shrimp and human pandemics
on: Replikins Ltd.
Dr. Bogoch spoke at the World Aquaculture Conference in San Antonio, giving some background on his company's Replikins technology and announcing test results in conjunction with the University of Arizona. These results correlate virulence of four Taura virus strains in shrimp with the concentration of Replikin subsequences in the virus genomes. This is the first virus protein structure to have been shown to be quantitatively relate not only to the occurrence of epidemics, but now specifically to mortality rate of the host.
