(American Society of Agronomy) In a new study, scientists report significant strides in transferring disease- and stress-resistance traits from wild relatives of several legumes to their domesticated varieties.
(Institute of Transformative Bio-Molecules (ITbM), Nagoya University) Scientists at ITbM, Nagoya University have synthesized a new bioactive small molecule that has the ability to increase stomata numbers on flowering plants without stunting their growth. The team's new discovery could help elucidate the stomatal development mechanism in plants.
A new mechanism by which cancer cells evade destruction by the immune system has been discovered by a team of researchers. Their paper describes how immune cells known as group 2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s) are recruited by leukemic cells to suppress an essential anticancer immune response.
Scientists have developed a new form of high-resolution 'printing' which could have wide-ranging applications in data storage, anti-counterfeiting measures, and digital imaging.
Hoping to help data scientists speed up their artificial intelligence and machine learning projects, data management startup Immuta Inc. today is updating its platform with new features that deliver personalized data access and automated differential privacy. Show More Summary
A discovery in a transparent roundworm has brought scientists one step closer to understanding why nerves degenerate.
Five years ago next month, four days before Superstorm Sandy made landfall in New Jersey, Rutgers University-New Brunswick marine scientists launched a data-collecting, submersible robot glider in front of the massive storm.
Astrophysicists from Moscow State University have found a new way to estimate the mass of supermassive black holes outside our galaxy, even if they are barely detectable. The results of the study were published in Astronomy and Astrophysics.
On Monday, a team of scientists in Australia announced an exciting breakthrough. For the first time, researchers were able to turn light into sound on a microchip. But -- as crazy-sounding new physics applications tend to be -- it's probably going to be a long time before you see one of these chips on a computer you can buy. Show More Summary
Findings leave researchers hopeful that understanding hearing preservation in birds could lead to new treatment possibilities for deaf humans If ageing humans had ears like those of barn owls they would never need hearing aids, scientists have shown. Show More Summary
In my part of New Jersey, we’re developing a tradition of electing scientists to make policy for us; statewide, federal. And now we have the chance to build on that, to re-elect our physicist-assemblyman Andrew Zwicker in LD-16 and send...Read more
A new study from researchers at Western Sydney University shows how radio astronomy can help our understanding of how galaxies form and evolve - and could change everything about how we study the universe. The team believes we are on...Show More Summary
(Lomonosov Moscow State University) Astrophysicists from Moscow State University have found a new way to estimate the mass of supermassive black holes outside our galaxy, even if these holes are barely detectable. The results of the study were published in the Astronomy and Astrophysics journal
A new study by scientists in the University at Buffalo's Research Institute on Addictions has shown that pregnant smokers are more likely to quit if they can learn to manage negative emotions that lead to smoking.

When it comes to male reproductive fertility, timing is everything. Now scientists are finding new details on how disruption of this timing may contribute to male infertility or congenital illness. Researchers are identifying the key molecular and genetic switch that activates production of healthy male sperm -- but only when the time is right.
(University of Edinburgh) The UK has low oil and gas resources and limited prospects for fracking, according to a new analysis by scientists at the University of Edinburgh, who recommend a shift towards greater use of renewable, clean energy.
The scorching hot surface of Mercury seems like an unlikely place to find ice, but research over the past three decades has suggested that water is frozen on the first rock from the sun, hidden away on crater floors that are permanently shadowed from the sun's blistering rays. Show More Summary
