Biophysical Society members David Julius and Yifan Cheng have used cryo-EM to create a precise structural model of the TRPA1 "wasabi" receptor, which is involved in perception of pain related to pungent chemical irritants like wasabi and tear gas: http://ow.ly/LoevW
The same receptor on nerve endings that makes sinuses tingle when we eat wasabi plays an important role in the pain of inflammation. The first 3-D view of the receptor could lead to better pain drugs.

How to Choose a Postdoctoral Position with No Regrets: http://ow.ly/Lj2M5
When it comes to your postdoc job search - don't think about what you should do, but rather what you want to do.

Are you celebrating the Year of the Phage? These drawings show the variety and beauty of phages: http://ow.ly/Lmw3U
Phage viruses rearrange genes, prey on bacteria and maintain microbial diversity. Can we harness them to do our bidding?

Head to the Biophysical Society’s blog to read about the science behind the cover art for the April 7 issue of Biophysical Journal. Yang et al. discuss a powerful new tool to probe the mechanisms of chemotactic cell migration. http://ow.ly/LmmEb
The cover image of Biophysical Journal (Volume 108, Issue 7) shows two chemoattractant-loaded microsource beads, which are being used to induce directed Jurkat cell migration.  The image of the cel...

This year, we are going "behind the scenes" to learn more about the science and the making of the images for the winning entries in the Society's Annual Art of Science Image contest. We start with our 3rd place winner, submitted by Anthony G. Vecchiarelli of the National Institutes of Health. http://ow.ly/LgtaI
