Researchers have developed a new experimental method, based on magneto-active polymers, to study cellular behaviour. These compounds, which consist of a polymeric matrix containing magnetic particles, mechanically react by changing their shape and stiffne
Experts were initially unsure what caused the freak geomagnetic event.
Study shows two species of octupus have same molecular analogy as human brain
Rumors of the star's death were greatly exaggerated.
Scientific Reports - Biodegradable porous micro/nanoparticles with thermoresponsive gatekeepers for effective loading and precise delivery of active compounds at the body temperature
Scientists reveal clues about the evolutionary origin of jaws by studying the embryonic development of zebrafish -- an approach known as 'evo-devo.' Using imaging and cell tracing techniques in zebrafish, researchers who conducted the study conclusively s
NASA scientists hope to solve a fundamental mystery about Mars' atmosphere, and you can help. They've organized a project called Cloudspotting on Mars that invites the public to identify Martian clouds using the citizen science platform Zooniverse. The in
The pumped-up arm of the lopsided spiral galaxy NGC 772 dominates this image captured by the international Gemini Observatory, a Program of NSF's NOIRLab. The overdeveloped spiral arm of the galaxy NGC 772, which was formed by tidal interactions with an u
The Cygnus spacecraft left the International Space Station on Tuesday.
Researchers may have found a new approach to treat cancer by using a plasma treatment to induce apoptosis, without any obvious side effect to normal cells. A plasma-activated medium (PAM) can be treated as a drug, with a dose-effect relationship.
