In a carefully designed polymer, researchers at the Polish Academy of Sciences have imprinted a sequence of a single strand of DNA. The resulting negative remained chemically active and was capable of binding the appropriate nucleobases of a genetic code. The polymer matrix—the first of its type—thus functioned exactly like a sequence of real DNA.
A collaboration between scientists at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, and Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry at the Chinese Academy of Sciences has developed a novel skin patch that delivers insulin in response to high levels of measured glucose.

Click here for reuse options! Can we finally put to rest the canard that marijuana has no medical value? And will someone tell Congress and the DEA? On Thursday the National Academy of Sciences released a comprehensive review of research on marijuana and concluded that marijuana does indeed have medical value. Show More Summary
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine has released a massive report that summarizes top-tier scientific research into the health effects of smoking marijuana. It's an essential resource for those who care about marijuana use and legalization and prefer science over ideology.
The media and publicists won’t be shivering at dawn at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences headquarters when the Oscar nominations are announced on Jan. 24: Instead, the Academy will go straight to digital platforms and a satellite...Show More Summary

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is notorious for only considering "serious" movies for Oscars, meaning that comedies and action films get short shrift, no matter how well-crafted they are. There was a crack in that tradition...Show More Summary
Well, it’s all happening: today is the last day of the “nominating phase” of this year’s Academy Awards, which means the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are (mostly likely) just now getting around to dashing off their suggestions for this year’s Oscar nominees. And since “awards season” has been going […]
Three researchers who discovered regulatory T-cells and their role in autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis (MS), have been awarded the Crafoord Prize by The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. The scientists — Shimon Sakaguchi,...Show More Summary
The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences announced the nominees for their 20th annual D.I.C.E., awards. No, this has nothing to do with Swedish game studio DICE, but their critically acclaimed and commercially successful World War I shooter, Battlefield 1 did manage to get...
