Like most people, I hate advertising. I hate it because of its manipulative nature, its constant nagging, the off-target communication, and for trying to literally follow you everywhere and trampling your privacy along the way. Luckily some companies are trying to do things differently. Show More Summary
(New York Genome Center) As described in a study published today in Nature Communications, researchers at the New York Genome Center (NYGC) and New York University (NYU) have taken steps to facilitate broad access to single-cell sequencing by developing a 3-D-printed, portable and low-cost microfluidic controller.

A study of the unusual digestive system of an ancient group of insects has provided new insights into future biofuel production. Published in Nature Communications, the research reveals that the ability of some insects to efficiently...Show More Summary
Ozonetel, cloud communications service provider, has introduced a speech API for its KooKoo cloud telephony platform. The KooKoo Speech API allows KooKoo users to add natural language processing capabilities to the KooKoo IVR.
A New York congressman this week proposed a bill to allow the federal government to revoke the citizenship of naturalized U.S. citizens within ten years if they are involved in gang activity. The bill, “Protecting our Communities from Gang Violence Act of 2018,” would strip citizenship from people affiliated with a criminal gang either ten […]
Peaking global CO2 emissions as soon as possible is crucial for limiting the risks of sea-level rise, even if global warming is limited to well below 2 degrees C. A study now published in the journal Nature Communications analyzes for the first time the sea-level legacy until 2300 within the constraints of the Paris Agreement.

A scientific study published this week in the journal Nature Communications shows that using small electrically-charged drones to deliver commercial packages generally consumes less energy per package than delivery trucks. For the paper...Show More Summary
As sea levels rise and coastal communities face the threat of erosion and flooding, coastal defence structures, often built with concrete, have become the norm in many parts of the world.
(Florida Museum of Natural History) Butterflies offer key insights into community ecology, how species originate and evolve, climate change and interactions between plants and insects. But a comprehensive map of how butterflies are related to each other has been lacking -- until now.
(National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine) In keeping with its mission to communicate the nature, values, and judgments of science to the public, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) is launching LabX, a public engagement...Show More Summary
Community choice aggregators, or CCAs, have become a force that cannot be ignored. In California, CCAs are cities or counties that have taken over key aspects of their own electricity and natural gas procurement, distribution and sales from one of the state’s three big investor-owned utilities.

A team of researchers from institutions across China has developed a new type of dialyser —one capable of capturing up to 97 percent of bacteria present in a blood sample. In their paper published in the journal Nature Communications, the group explains the origins of their device, how the filter was made and how well it worked during testing.
Research, published in Nature Communications, shows that brain activity of friends were more similar than activity in the brains of more distant acquaintances.
(Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares) A new study published in Nature Communications describes a high level of plasticity among different cell populations in the regenerating zebrafish heart
We exposed a natural phytoplankton community to combined present (390 µatm, low carbon [LC]) and future CO2 levels predicted for the year 2100 (900 µatm, high carbon [HC]), and ambient (4.5 nM, -DFB [desferoxamine B]) and high (12 nM, +DFB) dissolved iron (dFe) levels, for 25 d in mesocosms. We report on the physiological response of […]
Researchers used 3D imaging with molecular testing to uncover new insight into the earliest stages of mammalian pregnancy--offering clues to unsolved questions in pregnancy. Investigators report Feb. 9 in Nature Communications they demonstrated in mice that glands in the uterus must link and communicate directly with the embryo so it will implant and begin pregnancy.
Cleveland Clinic researchers have published findings in Nature Communications on a new stem cell pathway that allows a highly aggressive form of breast cancer - triple-negative breast cancer - to thrive.
With the staggering amount of issues and threats that face our natural world, it can feel overwhelming trying to decide how you can start to give back and make a real difference. Many of us spend hours researching which local efforts...Show More Summary
