Google Drive desktop app adds inapp file sharing, catches up to 2010's Dropbox

Sure, you could see and manage your Google Drive files from within the comfort of your PC / Mac file management system, but you couldn’t publicly share them with friends — until now. Google Drive files are now sharable via right click directly on your desktop, meaning the Drive desktop app now has one more feature that Dropbox already had several years ago. We hope you’ll forgive our lack of enthusiasm for Google’s catchup effort, but it’s hard to get all jazzed up about functionality that should’ve probably been there at launch. Anyway, if you’re not seeing the new feature pop up on your dashboard yet, Google says it’s “rolling out over the next few days.” Hold tight!

Assembly of a protein degradation machine could lead to treatments in cancer, neurological diseases

Kansas State University scientists helped discover new details about an intricate process in cells. Their finding may advance treatments for cancer and neurological diseases. Kansas State University researchers Jeroen Roelofs, assistant professor, and Chingakham Ranjit Singh, research assistant professor — both in the Division of Biology — led part of the study. Both also are research affiliates with the university’s Johnson Cancer Research Center. They worked with colleagues at Harvard Medical School, the University of California-San Francisco and the University of Kansas.
