Changes in our DNA can cause a host of health issues. However, we can mitigatge a lot of those if we can identify and catalogue these changes, potentially developing novel treatments.
While discovery of new complexes can be difficult, this group at Cambridge has developed “cube traps” and effectively synthesized a molecule atkin to a molecular fidget spinner!
Researchers have developed a database that allows us to predict undiscovered structures based on chemical reactivity rules and existing structures. While still in early stages, this is a huge step towards successful structural prediction!
