Induction of new macroscopic shapes from the fragments of the initial self-assembled structure. Yellow-arrowed path from 1 to 3: An initial fiber-like structure is created (1), then broken down using UV light (purple lighting symbol). Because they are tightly packed in the aftermath of the collapsing structure (2), these fragments co-assemble again into more diverse and larger shapes (3). Gray-arrowed path from 4 to 5: Simply mixing the same molecules in free motion in a solvent (4) do not result in the same variety and size of nanostructures (5).

Surprizing genome structure of Symbiodinium The Marine Genomics Unit of OIST has decoded the genome of the algae Symbiodinium minutum. The paper was published in the online version of Current Biology on July 11. This is a major advance in understanding the complex ecology of coral reefs.
