Tipping points of the Antarctic Ice-Sheet

The polar ice caps are important components of the climate system. A volume of ice representing a 58 m change in sea level elevation is stored on the Antarctic continent. The ice, which forms from the accumulation of snowfall, behaves like a viscous fluid that flows under its own weight. The Antarctic ice cap is unique in that it rests on a bedrock with large areas below sea level and is...

French summer of HPC : Transport of lipids, molecular mechanisms and their role in pathogenesis

Transport mechanisms guarantee a precise distribution of lipids at all points of the cell. Team of Institut de Pharmacologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire (CNRS & Université Côte d’Azur) is decrypting the operating mode of so-called lipid transfer proteins at the heart of these allocation processes. This can be used to understand the various cellular functions, as well as the molecular origins of...
