The final nail in the Jurassic Park coffin: Next generation sequencing reveals absence of DNA in sub-fossilized insects
It is hardly possible to talk about fossil insects in amber without the 1993 movie Jurassic Park entering the debate. The idea of recreating dinosaurs by extracting DNA from insects in amber has held the ...
MASER power comes out of the cold: Researchers demo solid-state MASER capable of operating at room temperatures
Scientists from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and Imperial College London demonstrate, for the first time, a solid-state 'MASER' capable of operating at room temperature, paving the way for its widespread ...
SlipChip counts molecules with chemistry and a cell phone
(Phys.org) —In developing nations, rural areas, and even one's own home, limited access to expensive equipment and trained medical professionals can impede the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Many qualitative ...
