The 5'-leader of the HIV-1 genome regulates multiple functions during viral replication via mechanisms that have yet to be established. We developed a nuclear magnetic resonance approach that enabled direct detection of structural elements within the intact leader (712-nucleotide dimer) that are critical for genome packaging. Residues spanning the gag start(More)
Majorana zero modes are quasiparticle excitations in condensed matter systems that have been proposed as building blocks of fault-tolerant quantum computers. They are expected to exhibit non-Abelian particle statistics, in contrast to the usual statistics of fermions and bosons, enabling quantum operations to be performed by braiding isolated modes around(More)
Condensed matter physics is heavily dependent on the discovery of new materials, but also on new developments in materials control. A tremendously successful story is the Si/SiO 2 interface, which was driven by the desire to use the field-effect transistor, and also led to the discovery of the Quantum Hall effect. Similarly, the " Great Crystallographic(More)
