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.
A study of newly made chemical compounds is giving scientists a fresh understanding of an elusive element.
What weighs 77 pounds, goes 50 mph (80 kph) and looks like a Swiss cheese on wheels?
Neutron computer tomography at ANSTO has been used in one of the first studies to reconstruct the interior structure of rare iron meteorites non-invasively.
