Microorganisms reduce methane release from the ocean

Next to CO2, methane is the greenhouse gas that contributes most to the man-made greenhouse effect. Of the methane sources caused by human activity, rice fields and cattle are among the most important. Furthermore, methane ...

New method may lead to better in vivo drug delivery

At some point, every person is likely to experience an inflammatory condition. There are many causes of inflammation, and just as many treatments. Some types of inflammation disappear by themselves, while others require medical ...

Single cell transcriptomics: A new sequencing approach

Researchers from University of Southern Denmark, Wellcome Sanger Institute and BGI have published a study in the journal Genome Biology comparing the library preparation and sequencing platforms for single-cell RNA-sequencing ...

New mathematical model to save endangered species

What does the blue whale have in common with the Bengal tiger and the green turtle? They share the risk of extinction and are classified as endangered species. There are multiple reasons for species to die out, and climate ...

Odd microbial partnerships via electrically conductive particles

Human activities have contributed to global warming, leading to increasing erosion of land. This results in conductive minerals being washed into water streams. The inflow of conductive particles can enable unusual electric ...

Researchers subtract a single quantum of light from a laser beam

In a collaboration between Aarhus University and the University of Southern Denmark, researchers have discovered a way to subtract a single quantum of light from a laser beam. This work has recently been published in Physical ...

Migratory birds eye-localized magnetoreception for navigation

Migratory birds use a magnetic compass in their eye for navigation. The involved sensory mechanisms have long remained elusive, but now, researchers have revealed exactly where in the eye avian navigation is situated.
