Bacterial mix helps predict future change

A controlled, laboratory approach, along with computer simulations, has helped KAUST researchers to show that bacterial communities can homogenously disperse within aquatic ecosystems, even with slow-flowing water and the ...

MOFs can sense and sort troublesome gases

From astronauts and submariners to miners and rescue workers, people who operate in small, enclosed spaces need good air quality to work safely and effectively. Electronic sensors now developed by a KAUST team can simultaneously ...

Global study shows exotic species are a complex threat

When species are introduced by humans into marine habitats, they can disrupt their new environment, according to a study at KAUST, which also identified key species for conservation efforts to focus on.

A fail-safe mechanism for DNA repair

Single-molecule fluorescent measurements provide fresh insights into a process for keeping errors out of our genomes.

Driving water down nanohighways

Removing water vapor from air and other gas mixtures, which is crucial for many industrial processes and air conditioning, could become cheaper and more effective through polymer membrane technology now developed at KAUST.

The fiddlers influencing mangrove ecosystems

The types of bacteria living in and around fiddler crab burrows vary widely between mangroves, but their functional activities are remarkably similar.
