A Texas pipeline company responsible for spilling more than 140,000 gallons of crude oil on the California coast last year was indicted on dozens of criminal charges in the disaster that closed popular beaches and killed sea lions and birds.
For the first time, the genomes of the giraffe and its closest living relative, the reclusive okapi of the African rainforest, have been sequenced -- revealing the first clues about the genetic changes that led to the evolution of the giraffe’s exceptionally long neck.
Researchers have shown that an experimental antiviral drug against hepatitis C slows down the development of Zika in mice.
Last summer, a University of Arizona archaeologist made a stunning claim: that new laser scans had revealed secret doorways in King Tut’s tomb. The Egyptian state media was gushing over the possibility of new riches tucked away there.
The CE-marked range of Thermo Scientific Environmental Chambers provide temperature control above and below ambient for drug stability testing, shelf-life testing, insect studies or controlled storage.
Metrohm has expanded its ion chromatography instruments and accessories supported by Waters’ Empower Chromatography Data Software (CDS).
Markes’ new sorbent tube is dedicated to the reliable analysis of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in air.
For astronomers, “dark matter” is the largely hypothetical substance that accounts for approximately 85 percent of the matter in the universe. Now, plant scientists have discovered a different kind of “dark matter” in the maize genome.
A team of scientists has identified the existence of a back-up plan for memory storage, which comes into play when the molecular mechanism of primary long-term memory storage fails.
Scientists have calculated, for the first time, the extent to which agricultural emissions must be reduced to meet the new climate agreement's plan to limit warming to 2°C in 2100.
Why doesn't a spider's web sag in the wind or catapult flies back out like a trampoline? The answer, according to new research by an international team of scientists, lies in the physics behind a 'hybrid' material produced by spiders for their webs.
A new study estimates that 63 percent of U.S. forest land, or about 825 million acres, is at risk of increased damage from established pests, and new pests continue to arrive with cargo shipments from overseas.
The advocacy organization Greenpeace has accused Ray Hilborn, a prominent fishery scientist, of being an "overfishing denier" who has also failed to disclose receiving millions of dollars in funding from seafood industry groups in dozens of published papers.
A team of surgeons at Massachusetts General Hospital announced today that they have performed the nation's first genitourinary reconstructive (penile) transplant. The 15-hour operation took place earlier this month.
Physicists are putting themselves out of a job, using artificial intelligence to run a complex experiment. The experiment created an extremely cold gas trapped in a laser beam, known as a Bose-Einstein condensate, replicating the experiment that won the 2001 Nobel Prize.
