A team of study researchers have discovered that the ancient 24,000 year Siberian individual have a few genomic signature of the present day western Eurasians but are more close to the modern Native Americans.
The United Nations stated that a notable progress was observed in curbing HIV/AIDS in majority of countries so far. But the organization raised concern over some countries and regions which need to be focused on.
An underwater volcanic eruption gave rise to a new island measuring 200 meters in diameter in the Pacific Ocean.
In a new technique, German researchers have used combination of computed tomography (CT) scans along with three dimensional(3D) printers to recreate accurate copies of dinosaur fossils.
A rare fish has been found in the Arctic waters, it is scientifically known as Rhinochimaeridae, also called the "long-nosed chimaera".
Mules and other hybrids aren't fertile. But why is that exactly? Scientists may have no uncovered the genetic reason. It turns out that differences in the levels--but not necessarily the sequences--of certain key proteins are crucial in mediating reproductive isolation.
A latest study states that babies have a natural aversion to touch plants. The study claims that this helps the infants to protect themselves against thorns and possible toxins present in the plants.
The calcite crust that grows among layers of seafloor algae helps in reconstructing climate change and also helps in modelling the future change in the climate, according to a latest study.
It turns out that permafrost may be contributing more to greenhouse gases than we thought. Scientists have discovered that methane emissions produced by thawing permafrost in the Canadian Arctic are greatly underestimated in current climate models.
Humans are able to locate and even side-step objects in their peripheral vision, sometimes even before they even perceive the object even being present. Now, it turns out that monkeys can do the same. Scientists have discovered that our relatives are able to locate where objects are without much mor...
It looks as if we're not out of the woods yet when it comes to global carbon emissions. Scientists have predicted that emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels are set to rise again in 2013, reaching a record high of 36 billion tons. This spells bad news for the future of climate change...
A recent study looks at the development of a sophisticated geometric model that may predict how biological molecules will interact with water molecules by computing results up to 20 times faster than previous approaches. Researchers believe that this could help them find new drugs to treat various d...
