Teenagers enjoy the products of artificial intelligence (AI) every day, whether taking a twisted selfie with a photo filter or listening to music with an automated streaming service. But not many high school students have used AI themselves to analyze human genetic variation or track deforestation in the Amazon.

In a major step toward developing portable scanners that can rapidly measure molecules on the pharmaceutical production line or classify tissue in patients’ skin, a Princeton-led team of researchers has created an imaging system that uses lasers small and efficient enough to fit on a microchip.
The team demonstrated the system’s resolution by using it to image a U.S. quarter. Fine details like the eagle’s wing feathers, as small as one-fifth of a millimeter wide, were clearly visible.

Atomic interactions in everyday solids and liquids are so complex that some of these materials’ properties continue to elude physicists’ understanding. Solving the problems mathematically is beyond the capabilities of modern computers, so scientists at Princeton University have turned to an unusual branch of geometry instead.

Many mutations in DNA that contribute to disease are not in actual genes but instead lie in the 99% of the genome once considered "junk." Even though scientists have recently come to understand that these vast stretches of DNA do in fact play critical roles, deciphering these effects on a wide scale has been impossible until now.
