( Carnegie Mellon University ) A team of scientists at Carnegie Mellon University has approximated molecular crowding in an artificial cellular system and found that tight quarters help the process of gene expression, especially when other conditions are less than ideal. The researchers report their findings in an advance online publication by the journal Nature Nanotechnology.
