These new chemical catalysts are less expensive, more sustainable
Yale University chemists have helped develop a family of new chemical catalysts that are expected to lower the cost and boost the sustainability of the production of chemical compounds used by a number of industries.
Changes in birds' ranges may greatly affect ecosystems
As changing climate reshapes the geographic range of thousands of bird species in the coming decades, ecosystems across wide swaths of the planet may be compromised, a new study warns.
Lab uncovers new pathway for passing genetic messages between cells
A Yale-led research team has described a novel pathway for the delivery of microRNA (miRNA), the tiny RNA molecules that can move between cells to regulate gene expression.
Stem cells have more reserves for DNA replication
In cell division, nothing is as important as the precise replication of billions of genetic letters that make up DNA. Since this genomic integrity is so fundamental to survival, scientists had assumed that replication mechanisms ...
Expanding the reach of metallic glass
Metallic glass, a class of materials that offers both pliability and strength, is poised for a friendly takeover of the chemical landscape.
Extra support for cells under stress may be a job for DoGs
Stress wreaks havoc on our health—even at the cellular level. Cells under certain kinds of duress can lose water and put pressure on our DNA, making it difficult for genes to carry out critical functions such as self-repair. ...
Signs of climate change and adaptation in the ancient Maya lowlands
A new study pinpoints the devastating effects of climate change on ancient Maya civilization, despite attempts to adapt to it.
A better grasp of primate grip
Scientists are coming to grips with the superior grasping ability of humans and other primates throughout history.
New laser could upgrade the images in tomorrow's technology
A new semiconductor laser developed at Yale has the potential to significantly improve the imaging quality of the next generation of high-tech microscopes, laser projectors, photolithography, holography, and biomedical imaging.
Black hole on a diet creates a 'changing look' quasar
Yale University astronomers have identified the first "changing look" quasar, a gleaming object in deep space that appears to have its own dimmer switch.
