Hokkaido University researchers have synthesised a uniquely structured platinum-based superconducting material.
It's not exactly front-page news that when it comes to conflict, men and women are very different. The way they resolve those conflicts, though, is another story.
Ribonucleic acid (RNA) binding fluorescent probes have been powerful and important analytical tools for the study of RNA structures and functions.
The structure and dynamics of the DNA double helix are influenced in a decisive way by the surrounding water shell. New experiments in the ultrafast time domain show that the first two water layers at the DNA surface generate ...
Solar cells based on cadmium and tellurium could move closer to theoretical levels of efficiency because of some sleuthing by researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
Twitter users who are happy tend to be more connected with other happy users. This is the confirmation of a property of social networks known as assortativity: a measure of to what extent people who tend to connect with each ...
Researchers have discovered a way to predict which alloys will form metallic glasses. The research could pave the way for new strong, conductive materials.
All materials found in nature – even the most "perfect" diamond – contain defects, since the atoms inside them are never arranged in perfect order.
A new study could explain why DNA and not RNA, its older chemical cousin, is the main repository of genetic information. The DNA double helix is a more forgiving molecule that can contort itself into different shapes to absorb ...
When it comes to keeping our soil healthy, maintaining plant species diversity is key, according to new research published this week in the journal Ecology Letters.
