A study in the CSIC confirms that the Turing type mathematical model explains the pattern in the formation of molecular fingers

In 1952, Briton Alan Turing proposed a mathematical model for the formation of structures that are repeated in biological systems. An investigation by the National Research Council (CSIC) and the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona confirmed that this model could act as a molecular pattern in the formation of the fingers of tetrapods.


A mathematical model allows prediction of environmental collapse by detecting early signs of changes

An investigation, which collaborates the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC), proposes a method to predict environmental collapse. The theory used could also be applied in the field of agriculture, fisheries and social systems.

The work, which will be published in Nature, suggests that the health of ecosystems fluctuates abruptly shortly before collapsing.


A multidisciplinary team of researchers has developed a bioinformatics platform that analyzes the ability of an ecosystem to absorb pollutants

The work of a multidisciplinary team of researchers from the National Research Council (CSIC), the University of Oviedo and the Balearic Islands University opens new perspectives to determine the ability of autodecontamination of a soil affected by spills as oil or certain aromatic hydrocarbons, from DNA sequencing of microorganisms.


CSIC developes a technique that allows the reading of the electrical activity simultaneously in several areas inside the brain and interpret them independently

The new technique developed by the team of CSIC allows reading of electrical activity of simultaneously within the brain areas in each of which in turn receives the same number of brain nuclei interconnected. Mathematical analysis of independent components, in this case optimized for intracerebral records allows separate each of these streams separately to interpret.
