Researchers at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the BioEnergy Science Center (BESC) say better understanding of a bacterium could lead to cheaper production of cellulosic ethanol and other advanced biofuels. Their discovery was made during an investigation into the performance of Clostridium thermocellum. Show More Summary

This week, an artist creates a maze of small boxes in a Boyle Heights basement and writers and artists pay homage to Sandra Bland, whose death still presents more questions than answers. Science as fashion “The Small Laboratory,” William Leavitt's installation at Honor Fraser, conjures a mad scientist with good...
MIT professor Marvin Minsky, a "founding father" of the field of artificial intelligence, has died. He was 88. In 1959, Minsky co-founded MIT's Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (now the Computer Science and Artificial IntelligenceShow More Summary
Marvin Minsky, a founder of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Artificial Intelligence Project, which later became known as the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), has died. Minsky was 88. An MIT spokesperson confirmed the news. Minsky died yesterday of a cerebral hemorrhage, The New York Times reported. Minsky was one of the first […]
How well does a rat simulate a human gambler? Well enough to be the basis of science announcements. Those announcements come from a laboratory at the University of British Columbia. Here’s one of the announcements: UBC Psychology Professor Catharine Winstanley [pictured here]’s one-of-a-kind approach to gambling addiction is a highlight of the Djavad Mowafaghian Centre […]

The overabundance of CO2 in the atmosphere could become the source of cheap, clean and renewable energy. Scientists from Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences in Hefei, China, have developed a nanomaterial made of cobalt oShow More Summary
This is weird science. Researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have taken some normal bacteria and made them photosynthetic by adding cadmium sulfide nanoparticles. Cadmium sulfide is what makes the garden-variety photoresistor work. Show More Summary
Fujitsu in joint research with the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) and Fujitsu Laboratories have developed the world’s largest magnetic-reversal simulator, using a mesh covering more than 300 million micro-regions. Based.. The post Fujitsu and NIMS Develop World’s Largest-Scale Magnetic-Reversal Simulator appeared first on Gadgets, gizmos, and tech from the East.
The Division of Planetary Science (DPS) Meeting saw many exciting scientific discussions spanning the range of processes on different planetary bodies, as well as their replication in the laboratory and in models.
The Large Hadron Collider, a.k.a. CERN, found success in a simple idea: Invest in a laboratory that no one institution could sustain on their own and then make it accessible for physicists around the world. Astronomers have done the same with telescopes, while neuroscientists are collaborating to build brain imaging observatories. Show More Summary
21ST CENTURY RESEARCH: Sex in the name of science: what we can learn from studying intercourse. “Who volunteers to have sex in a laboratory? I was struck by this question when reading about an experimental study of ideal sexual positions for men with back pain. For the purpose of the research, couples were filmed using […]
The American Assn. for the Advancement of Science has dropped UCLA chemistry professor Patrick Harran as one of its 2015 fellows, saying that members who initially approved his nomination were unaware of a fatal fire in a laboratory he supervised. The decision by the world's largest general scientific...
Before a drug or treatment hits the market, it has to be extensively tested. Usually, the test subjects include laboratory animals — mice, rats, pigs. For decades, those critters shared one trait: They were predominantly male. Scientists seeking breakthroughs experimented almost exclusively on...
