  • Toxic molecule may help birds "see" north and south

    Klaus Schulten and colleagues report that a toxic molecule may play a pivotal role in bird migration. The molecule is proposed as a key player in the process that allows birds to "see" Earth's magnetic field. Schulten holds the Swanlund Chair in Physics at the University of Illinois.
