    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.

    With the goal of making the results of research and scholarship more accessible, Princeton will launch a new service to provide infrastructure and training to University researchers on how best to format and curate data in ways that facilitate long-term storage and discovery.

    Quantum computing has plenty of skeptics, but assistant professor Mark Zhandry isn’t one of them. 

  • Post 'net neutrality' internet needs new measurement tools, Princeton experts tell policymakers

    Friday, Mar 29, 2019
    by John Sullivan, Office of Engineering Communications

    For much of the past decade, fierce political battles over the internet have involved concerns that the fastest access would go only to those with the greatest ability to pay. In testimony last week in Washington, however, a Princeton professor said measuring such performance is no longer so simple. On the internet, speed no longer rules.
