The next generation of airplanes, body armor and football helmets crawled out from under a rock—literally.
New molecular dynamics research into how RNA folds into hairpin-shaped structures called tetraloops could provide important insights into new treatments for retroviral diseases.
Team analyzed network heterogeneity of suprachiasmatic nucleus to reverse age-related decline in circadian rhythm
If you've ever felt groggy the morning after traversing time zones, you can thank the temporary mismatch between your body's 24-hour circadian rhythm and your new local time. In mammals, this rhythm is governed on a neuronal ...
Researchers from the University of Washington are using supercomputers at Department of Energy's National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) and data from X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) experiments to gain ...
Imagine a device that is selectively transparent to various wavelengths of light at one moment, and opaque to them the next, following a minute adjustment.
Researchers at MIT are seeking to redesign concrete—the most widely used human-made material in the world—by following nature's blueprints.
Oxide-ion conducting ceramic materials have received considerable attention because of their potential applications in solid oxide fuel cells, oxygen separation membranes, and gas sensors.
A new study, the largest of its kind, has systematically examined International Monetary Fund (IMF) policies over the past three decades. It found that—despite claims to have reformed their practices following the global ...
A study of newly made chemical compounds is giving scientists a fresh understanding of an elusive element.
