In a new study, scientists report that by wresting back control of a protein, they could restore multiple defenses in the lungs of mice, staving off cancer's spread there.
Researchers have succeeded in manipulating a strain of microalgae to form complex molecules to an unprecedented extent.
Chemists have developed a method that allows brewers to measure the freshness of beer, using a polymer sensor that changes color upon detecting furfural.
Levels of carbon dioxide in the air increased to a new record last month. Scientists are once again pointing to extreme weather events caused by El Niño as contributors to the jump in CO2 levels.
An international team of scientists has detected and confirmed the faintest early-Universe galaxy ever using the W. M. Keck Observatory on the summit on Maunakea, Hawaii.
Scientists have found the first real evidence of how muscles may be triggered to regenerate or heal when damaged.
Spotting native alligators and crocodiles in Florida is common, but anyone who sees a large reptile may want to take a second look.
Studying fruit flies, whose sleep is remarkably similar to that in people, researchers say they’ve identified brain cells that are responsible for why delaying bedtime creates chronic sleepiness.
A small fire shut down a generating tower Thursday at the world's largest solar power plant, leaving the sprawling facility on the California-Nevada border operating at only a third of its capacity, authorities said.
A biosensor detects molecules associated with neurodegenerative diseases and some types of cancer. The device is basically a single-layer, organic, nanometer-scale transistor on a glass slide.
Thermo Fisher Scientific’s MSIA Strepdavidin EVO microcolumns have been designed to bring the novel mass spectrometric immunoassay (MSIA) affinity purification technology to Tecan’s Freedom EVO series of robotic platforms.
Terra Universal’s BioSafe Corian Pass-Through Chambers are made with material supplied by DuPont.
Last week, Mercury stole the show. Now it's Mars' turn. On Sunday morning, Mars, Earth and the sun will line up perfectly in the sky.
3-D printing has inspired visions of manufacturing revolutions, but is currently held back by inefficiency and the underwhelming quality of available materials.
Joint injury can lead to post-traumatic osteoarthritis (PTOA). In fact, about half of all people who rupture the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in their knee will develop PTOA within 10 to 20 years of the injury.
