In the US, the federal government has awarded $7.7m to start a project to study how cells can use plasma as a catalyst for life.
Plasma is a key building block for many life processes, and researchers are keen to understand how it works.
But until now, there has been little research into how it is generated and distributed.
Plasma researchers are looking at whether it can be made to flow through membranes and replicate itself.
Researchers in the UK have found that, unlike DNA, which is typically used to generate proteins, plasma is able to do the same thing.
The first phase of the project aims to build a computer model of the plasma membrane to test whether it could be manipulated to make it more efficient or more stable.
The work was published in Nature.
In the future, researchers hope to learn how plasma flows through membranes to create life.
Bioinformatical research The work has been led by the Institute for Molecular Biology at Imperial College London.
It is one of the UK’s largest research institutes and, in 2013, became the first to receive an award from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support a major research project.
The UK is the second country in the world to make a major investment in plasma research.
Last year, the country signed a €2.8m deal with the US government to build its first large-scale, high-speed research reactor.
Bioinformaties have a long history in biology, but they are still largely in the realm of theory.
This has made it difficult to make direct comparisons between the technologies used in research labs and the ones that actually happen in the real world.
That said, recent advances in plasma biology have led to breakthroughs in cancer treatment, medicine and the prevention of infectious diseases.
One of the most important steps in understanding how the cells work is the construction of computers to analyse the flow of ions in the plasma.
It has been used to predict the fate of different proteins, including those used to create proteins.
In experiments, it has been possible to detect changes in the ion concentration after an injection of an antibody against one protein, for example, or after the treatment of a cancer patient with the same antibody.
The team at Imperial has now used this technology to create a model of a plasma membrane, using the same technique used to construct the computer model.
It was able to generate the model using a computer program that could generate the simulation by observing the plasma flow.
The team found that the model generated by the computer program could predict how many ions were released into the plasma and how many were released back out.
The results are consistent with the simulation being a prediction of the membrane, rather than a direct measurement of its contents.
In addition to the new model, the researchers also analysed how many ion molecules are released when the membrane is changed from one protein to another.
This could tell them if the membrane can hold more ions, or if it could become unstable.
The model showed that the membrane could become more stable if there were more ions in it than before.
Once the model was run, the team used this to make predictions of the structure of the flow.
This showed that, when the flow changed from the protein to the plasma, the ion concentrations were different.
These predictions are consistent not only with how the flow changes, but also with the behaviour of the molecules.
While these predictions can provide insight into the process of how the plasma moves through the membrane and how it behaves, it is the simulation that will allow researchers to learn the behaviour more directly.
This can be used to make the membranes more efficient and more stable, the scientists say.
This work builds on earlier work from Imperial and the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), which showed that proteins can be formed in the absence of other molecules.
But the new work adds to the knowledge gained from these previous studies and suggests that the mechanism behind this process may be a lot simpler than previously thought.
For the new study, the Imperial team used the method used by scientists at the University of California, Berkeley.
It also used a similar method to construct a computer-based model that was run to test the model.
“In our computer-simulation model, a membrane is used to store an ion,” said Professor Mark Stokes, a co-author on the paper.
“It is assumed that when an ion is released, it must flow out of the fluid, as opposed to into the fluid of another molecule, such as another protein.
The flow is measured in a way that the flow rate can be predicted and, if a membrane has too much ions, it can collapse.
This collapses the membrane.”
In the simulation, the flow from the proteins to the membrane was measured.
If the flow was too high, it would cause the membrane to collapse.
If it was too low, it could cause the membranes structure to change.
The researchers then used computer modelling to simulate the flow
