Electrochemistry: Greater than the sum of its parts

When it comes to designing and optimizing mechanical systems, scientists understand the physical laws surrounding them well enough to create computer models that can predict their properties and behavior. However, scientists who are working to design better electrochemical systems, such as batteries or supercapacitors, don’t yet have a comprehensive model ... Read More »

Zika vaccine shows promise for treating deadly brain cancer

An international team of researchers has successfully deployed a Zika virus vaccine to target and kill human glioblastoma brain cancer stem cells, which had been transplanted into mice. In a study published this week in mBio®, an open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology, the team shows that a ... Read More »

Qualcomm Snapdragon 1000 for laptops could pack 8.5 billion transistors

Qualcomm already has a few 2-in-1 laptop and Windows tablet products incoming with the newfangled Snapdragon 850 processor, but the tech scene is already abuzz about its successor: the Snapdragon 1000 (a.k.a. Snapdragon 8180). That excitement builds today with the latest report from WinFuture, claiming the chip will pack a ... Read More »

New insights into DNA polymerases in interaction with modified substrates

Complex biological systems can be described as a network of chemical processes that take place in molecules. The scientists of the “ChemLife” research initiative at the University of Konstanz are working together in an equally active network with dynamic interconnections — both subject-specific and interdisciplinary. Recent insights into DNA polymerases ... Read More »

Chemists create circular fluorescent dyes for biological imaging

University of Oregon chemists have created a new class of fluorescent dyes that function in water and emit colors based solely on the diameter of circular nanotubes made of carbon and hydrogen. The six-member team reported the discovery, which is now being explored for its potential use in biological imaging, ... Read More »

New insights into DNA phase separation

“Each human cell contains approximately 2 meters of DNA, yet that are too small to be visible to the unaided eye. Amazingly, all of that DNA is tightly packaged into a teeny little nucleus. There, we were able to observe the most basic separation principle of oil and water phases.” ... Read More »

Searching for clues on extreme climate change

The remains of a buried pine forest at the foot of Mont Saint Genis in Southern France yield insightful information on a drastic climate change event. The pine tree stand initiated around 12,900 years ago during the relatively warm “Allerød” period, and continued growing into the cold snap of the ... Read More »

Scientists use artificial neural networks to predict new stable materials

Artificial neural networks — algorithms inspired by connections in the brain — have “learned” to perform a variety of tasks, from pedestrian detection in self-driving cars, to analyzing medical images, to translating languages. Now, researchers at the University of California San Diego are training artificial neural networks to predict new ... Read More »

Magellanic Clouds duo may have been a trio

Two of the closest galaxies to the Milky Way — the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds — may have had a third companion, astronomers believe. Research published today describes how another “luminous” galaxy was likely engulfed by the Large Magellanic Cloud some three to five billion years ago. ICRAR Masters ... Read More »

Medical News Today: Double mastectomy recovery: What to know

A double mastectomy is the surgical removal of both breasts. In addition to physically recovering from the surgery, people undergoing a double mastectomy will need to consider their emotional recovery in the weeks and months that follow the procedure. According to research, approximately 17 percent of women with early-stage breast ... Read More »
