Using the powerful Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) in US. scientists have shown how it's possible to glean precise details on the arrangement of gold's protons and neutrons using a kind of quantum interference never before seen in an experiment.
Researchers from the University of Copenhagen and University of Rochester have identified a layer of tissue that helps protect our gray and white matter, one that hasn't been distinguished before.
How life emerged on Earth from an assortment of non-living molecules is a stubbornly enduring mystery but now we could have some more clues thanks to a recent study.
An alloy of chromium, cobalt, and nickel has just given us the highest fracture toughness ever measured in a material on Earth.
Microscopic fragments of environmental DNA were found in Ice Age sediment in northern Greenland. Researchers discovered the fragments that are one million years older than the previous record for DNA.
Since the 18th century the prevalence of this extra artery is increasing. The prevalence was around 10 % in people born in the mid-1880s compared to 30 % in those born in the late 20th century, - a significant increase in a fairly short period of time.
Now scientists have used CRISPR to remove and add genes to these cells to help them recognize a patient’s specific tumor cells.
The length of our day changes slightly over a six-year period. This recent discovery has perplexed scientists for about a decade and now we know the reason for it - it is the Earth core.
The engineered bacteria are now resistant to even the most aggressive viruses, with little chance of leaking their synthetic code into the wild.
Dutch researchers discovered a new process that uses fuel to control non-living materials, similar to what living cells do. The discovery is a step towards soft robotics; soft machines that can sense what is happening in their environment.
The study used whole genome sequencing to examine the entire genomes of over 7,000 individuals with autism. The team found 134 genes linked with ASD and discovered a range of genetic changes.
Technically referred to as sedaDNA – for sedimentary ancient DNA – the recovered samples are likely to prove useful in the ongoing efforts to understand how climate change could affect Antarctica in the future.
