Sequence determinant of small RNA production by DICER
Prof. V. Narry Kim
RNA silencing relies on specific and efficient processing of double-stranded RNA by Dicer, which yields microRNAs (miRNAs) and small interfering RNAs (siRNAs).

Fast and accurate protein structure search with Foldseek
Prof. Martin Steinegger
As structure prediction methods are generating millions of publicly available protein structures, searching these databases is becoming a bottleneck. Foldseek aligns the structure of a query protein against a database by describing tertiary amino acid interactions within proteins as sequences over a structural alphabet.
Discovery and Biosynthesis of Cihunamides, Macrocyclic Antibacterial RiPPs with a Unique C−N Linkage...
Prof. Dong-Chan Oh, Prof. Seokhee Kim
Chemical analysis of volcanic-island-derived Streptomyces uncovered cihunamides, unique ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides with antibacterial activity.
Protein stabilization of ITF2 by NF-κB prevents colitis-associated cancer development
Prof. Hyun-Woo Shin
Chronic colonic inflammation is a feature of cancer and is strongly associated with tumorigenesis, but its underlying molecular mechanisms remain poorly understood.
Helical polymers for dissymmetric circularly polarized light imaging
Prof. Joon Hak Oh
Control of the spin angular momentum (SAM) carried in a photon provides a technologically attractive element for next-generation quantum networks and spintronics.
RNA-mediated demixing transition of low-density condensates
Prof. Yongdae Shin
Biomolecular condensates play a key role in organizing cellular reactions by concentrating a specific set of biomolecules.
Floatable photocatalytic hydrogel nanocomposites for large-scale solar hydrogen production
Prof. Taeghwan Hyeon, Prof. Dae-Hyeong Kim
Storing solar energy in chemical bonds aided by heterogeneous photocatalysis is desirable for sustainable energy conversion. Despite recent progress in designing highly active photocatalysts, inefficient solar energy and mass transfer, the instability of catalysts and reverse reactions impede their practical large-scale applications.
First quantification and chemical characterization of atmospheric microplastics observed in Seoul, S...
Prof. Sujong Jeong
This study is the first report on atmospheric microplastics (MPs) observed in five outdoor environments, including an urban forest, a business center, commercial areas, and a public transportation hub in Seoul, South Korea.
Single-Benzene Dual-Emitters Harness Excited-State Antiaromaticity for White Light Generation and Fl...
Prof. Dongwhan Lee
Single-benzene dual-emitters are realized by proton transfer equilibrium between two emissive tautomers. We demonstrate that the excited-state antiaromaticity of the benzene core drives the proton movements.
Changes in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol with risk of Cardiovascular Disease among initially ...
Prof. Sang Min Park
High-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels were previously considered to be inversely associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Monolithic 100% Silicon Anode for All-Solid-State Batteries Achieving High Areal Capacity at Room Te...
Prof. Jongwoo Lim
Silicon is an attractive anode material for all-solid-state batteries (ASSBs) because it has a high energy density and is safer than metallic lithium.
Dissecting the Terra-LUNA crash: Evidence from the spillover effect and information flow
Prof. Jaewook Lee
The Terra-LUNA crash in May 2022 was triggered by the depeg of the ecosystem’s stablecoin UST. It led to the unprecedented demise of a blockchain ecosystem and cost investors tens of billions of dollars.
Thermal characteristics of crystalline and amorphous 2′-fucosyllactose, a human milk oligosaccharide
Prof. Donghwa Chung
The thermal characteristics of crystalline and amorphous forms of a human milk oligosaccharide, 2ʹ-fucosyllactose (2ʹ-FL), were investigated by differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetric analysis, and compared with the two forms of α-lactose monohydrate.
