How DNA Avoids UV Damage

 
 
Featured Story  

In the same week that the U.S. surgeon general issued a 101-page report about the dangers of skin cancer, researchers published a paper breaking new ground on how DNA – the genetic code in every cell – responds when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. The findings advance fundamental understanding of DNA damage by the UV rays found in sunlight.

More Acidic Seawater Endangers Alaskan Marine Life

Thumbnail

The release of carbon dioxide into the air from power plant smokestacks to the tailpipe on your car could pose a risk to red king crab and other lucrative fisheries in Alaska. Ocean water becomes more acidic when it absorbs carbon dioxide released by human sources, such as the burning of fossil fuels.

Research Maps Cultural Migration

Thumbnail

Quantifying and transforming the history of culture into visual representation isn't easy. There are thousands of individual stories across millennia to consider, and some historical conditions are nearly impossible to measure. The challenge brought together a team of network and complexity scientists to create a big picture of European and North American cultural history.

Protons Key to More Efficient Chemistry, Catalysts

Thumbnail

Renewable energy. Available food. Effective medicines. The reactions behind these products and countless more are not as efficient or effective as we want. To improve the reactions, scientists must first understand and then design catalysts, the molecules that drive reactions without being consumed by them. Understanding the in's and out's of how the complexes react with protons could lead to more efficient catalysts.
