An international and multidisciplinary team, coordinated by computer scientist Marta Simeoni and physicist Achille Giacometti from Ca' Foscari University of Venice, has developed and tested for the first time a method of predicting which mutations of the 'pain protein' NaV1.7 deserve diagnostic investigations.
A new environmental crisis threatens both natural ecosystems and human food security.
