Researchers from the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering have found yet another remarkable use for the wonder material graphene — tiny electronic ‘tweezers’ that can grab biomolecules floating in water with incredible efficiency.
An international research team reported that the Zika virus is transmitted from mother to her fetus by infected cells that will later develop into the brain's first and primary form of defense against invasive pathogens.
A sharp rise in the number of women seeking BRCA genetic testing to evaluate their risk of developing breast cancer was driven by multiple factors, including celebrity endorsement, according to researchers at the University of Georgia (UGA).
Researchers from Washington State University have determined that the Pacific Northwest was home to one of the Earth's largest known volcanic eruptions, a millennia-long spewing of sulfuric gas that blocked out the Sun and cooled the planet.
A team of researchers and students at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) are trying to curb the number of petroleum-based flip flops —currently, three billion every year — that end up in landfills.
In a step toward bridging the gap between fungal taxonomy and molecular ecology, scientists have characterized a sample of ‘mystery’ fungus collected in North Carolina and found its home in the fungal tree of life.
In a pioneering effort to control, measure and understand magnetism at the atomic level, researchers working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have discovered a new method for manipulating the nanoscale properties of magnetic materials.
