Scientists at the Universities of Manchester and Nottingham have been funded to develop a gel that will match many of the biological structures of human breast tissue, to advance cancer research and reduce animal testing.
Every day, hundreds of different plant species—many of them listed as invasive—are traded online worldwide on auction platforms. This exacerbates the problem of uncontrollable biological invasions.
A study published this week in the Royal Society journal Biology Letters finds that bees are able to learn which flowers to collect nectar and pollen from based on the colour of the blooms.
When researchers captured Eurasian reed warblers along the Russian coast during their spring migrations and flew them 1,000 kilometers east to Zvenigorod, the birds weren't fazed; they simply re-oriented themselves toward ...
Heather Gall sprays a few sprits of tick spray around her face and arms, pulls on her baby blue waterproof waders and adjusts the straps to fit her petite frame before wading knee-deep into a pond at one of Penn State's Living ...
Vicky Schneider, 361° Division at The Genome Analysis Centre, along with UK and European partners, has reviewed key aspects of standards and formats of biological data to highlight the importance of data integration and ...
New computational approach allows researchers to design cellulose nanocomposites with optimal properties
Theoretically, nanocellulose could be the next hot supermaterial.
The way in which our cells convert food into fuel is shared by almost all living things - now scientists have discovered a likely reason why this is so widespread.
Researchers at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) have developed a way of assembling organic molecules into complex tubular tissue-like structures without the use of moulds or techniques like 3D printing.
