Researchers developed a way to introduce precisely four copper ions into quantum dots. This opens up possibilities for fine-tuning their optical properties and producing spectacular colors.
Scientists have identified a protein in the blood of mice and humans that may prove to be the first effective treatment for the form of age-related heart failure that affects millions of Americans.
A new study looking at the genomes of more than 13,000 men identified four new genetic variants associated with an increased risk of testicular cancer.
A breakthrough for direct imaging of exoplanets: ground-based telescopes have begun taking infrared pictures of the planets posing near their stars in family portraits.
Looking at recent laboratory accidents and tragedies, it seems that chemists are still learning lab safety the hard way. By analyzing these students’ mistakes, many chemists can avoid these types of occurrences in the future.
Experiments unearthed clues about which protein signaling molecules are allowed into hollow, hair-like “antennae,” called cilia, that alert cells to critical changes in their environments.
A recent research study has shed new light on the diet and food acquisition strategies of some the earliest human ancestors in Africa.
A study of carnivorous plants shows that the large majority of noncoding DNA— which is abundant in many living things— may not actually be needed for complex life.
The editors of Laboratory Equipment want you to start your week with a smile of your face. So, here’s a science joke we think you might like.
Explore a global time lapse of our planet, constructed by Google from Landsat satellite imagery.
The sophistication of a global network of thieves who drained cash machines around the globe of an astonishing $45 million in mere hours sent ripples through the security world.
A study has identified influenza viruses circulating in pigs and birds that could pose a risk to humans.
Do-it-yourself electronics manufacturing may soon be possible with your desktop printer, say the designers of a new system that directly prints electronic circuits onto ordinary paper.
