Coffee, subject to a tug-of-war in positive and negative health studies, has its latest supporting claim: that it helps prevent liver cirrhosis.
A research team made a 3-D gel model of a smooth fetal brain based on MRI images to better understand how the human brain folds.
The largest genetic study of dogs is a big step towards efficiently mapping genes responsible for complex diseases in dogs, most of which are very similar in humans, thereby accelerating understanding of human genetic diseases.
The genome of eelgrass has now been unveiled. It turns out that the plant, once land-living but now only found in the marine environment, has lost the genes required to survive out of the water.
Researchers have found that erosion is just as important as melting ice in driving the increase in magma production and subsequent volcanic activity.
When the moon is high in the sky, it creates bulges in the planet’s atmosphere that creates imperceptible changes in the amount of rain that falls below. New research shows that the lunar forces affect the amount of rain – though very slightly.
A new study has found a steep decline in the number of scholarly papers about basic science published in leading medical journals in the last 20 years.
In preparation for future long-duration space missions, NASA has asked four volunteers to live in close quarters with no access to the outside world for 30 days. Researchers will observe and analyze how these conditions affect the group's behavior.
The Purair Advanced P20 Ductless Fume Hood from Air Science USA is designed to provide operator protection when using hazardous substances.
Clippard’s NPV Series Miniature Pinch Valve is a solenoid-operated device that is designed to open and close tubes for controlling flow of liquids and gases.
SPECTRO Analytical’s SPECTROSCOUT X-ray fluorescence spectrometer brings laboratory-quality elemental composition monitoring and quality control testing to at-line analysis.
The Central Intelligence Agency declassified and released hundreds of documents about its investigations into UFOs in 1978, just as public interest in the infamous Roswell incident again became a sensation.
New research demonstrates Bisphenol S (BPS), a common replacement for BPA, speeds up embryonic development and disrupts the reproductive system.
An international team of scientists - recently returned from a 47-day research expedition to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean - have collected an unprecedented sequence of rock samples from the shallow mantle of the ocean crust that bear signs of life, unique carbon cycling and ocean crust movement.
A new global analysis of seafood found that fish populations throughout the world's oceans are contaminated with industrial and agricultural pollutants, collectively known as persistent organic pollutants.
