The JSI has published 11 articles in the journal Nature and Science in the last ten years, which are on average one a year, so two articles are published two days apart, the institute announced after today’s online press conference.
According to the JSI, Orosh Kabalber and colleagues at the journal Nature report the surprising discovery that fluid stability can be eliminated by discharging gas flow or using plasma, and Duchamp Turk and colleagues at the journal Science present a study that raises hopes in the fight against the SARS-CoV-2 virus. .
According to the JSI, the publications are already getting a lot of attention from the global public. An article on plasma in the journal Nature has been read by more than 1,300 researchers, and is mentioned on blogs and online social networks. Due to the topicality of the subject, the article in science resonates even more, they add.
Cvelbar, head of the Department of Gas Electronics, co-authored articles with colleagues in Korea in the journal Nature entitled Stabilizing Liquid Stability Using Ionized Gas Jet. It is located at sta.si/qjMNso.
According to the JSI, the research findings can help improve a number of industrial processes that include gas jets, such as steel production processes, jet propulsion systems, jet pumps, and so on. Using this concept it will thus be possible to control certain processes in liquids resulting from instability and unwanted.
Turk, meanwhile, along with his colleagues from the Department of Biochemistry, Molecular and Structural Biology of the JSI and foreign colleagues at the journal Science, published an article titled X-ray identification of active and allosteric site inhibitors of SARS-CoV-2 primary protease. – X-ray diffraction filter crystals of the primary protease have been exposed to SARS-CoV-2 virus inhibitors. It is located at sta.si/qFHzJu.
Their work has focused on developing drugs or active ingredients that can facilitate the course of covid-19 disease or cure patients. According to the JSI, the article raises the hope that we are one step closer to covid-19.
