(University of Texas at Austin, Texas Advanced Computing Center) Researchers are shedding light on a type of membrane-less organelle, known as biological condensates, that play a role in DNA repair and aging. Using the Frontera supercomputer, biophysicists from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign performed coarse-grained molecular dynamics of one particular biomolecular condensate -- fused in sarcoma (FUS). Writing in the Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters, they outlined a phase diagram showing the physical states of the condensate under different conditions of temperature and pressure.
