New findings published in Nature Genetics uncover DNA's biological significance, according to researchers at Cornell University. They examined how new computational methods can indentify positions in the human genome that play a role in the proper functioning of cells.
Lasers have yet another use. Scientists are using them to transform metals into extremely water-repellent materials without the need for temporary coatings. This could be huge for airplanes, anti-rust materials and other applications.
New findings could actually improve practices for current biotech crops. Scientists have discovered that multiple toxins in transgenic crops don't help when it comes to pest control.
Scientists have discovered a method to both enhance light emission and capture light from metamaterials embedded with light emitting nanocrystals.
Scientists have taken a novel approach to gaining high-resolution images of cells by enlarging tissue samples by embedding them in a polymer that swells when water is added.
Astronomers are turning to machines when it comes to learning more about the stars.
Let's face it. We all pick up a ton of germs handling this and that throughout the day, and of course, everything we touch latches on to many of these germs as well.
The Japanese VR headset manufacturer Fove has created Eye Play the Piano, a type of VR application that allows children with physical disabilities to play the piano.
Scientists have built a rice grain-sized laser powered by single electrons tunneling through artificial atoms known as quantum dots that could be a breakthrough in laser science.
Your iPhone may be a lot dirtier than you might think. A new study reveals that your phone accumulates a disgusting array of bacteria each day.
Members at Lions Befrienders Senior Activity Centre at Mei Ling Street no longer have to wait for their scheduled workout regimen, thanks to the development of the new robot, named Xuan.
