Scientists discover new process shaping red blood cell development

Red blood cells give us life. They ferry oxygen throughout our bodies. Breakdowns in red blood cell development can be life-threatening, but scientists still have much to learn about the molecular processes that ensure these ...

Pinpointing biomolecules with nanometer accuracy

It would be impossible to understand life without having a firm grasp on the microscopic interactions between molecules that occur in and around cells. Microscopes are and have been an invaluable tool for researchers in this ...

Biological material boosts solar cell performance

Next-generation solar cells that mimic photosynthesis with biological material may give new meaning to the term "green technology." Adding the protein bacteriorhodopsin (bR) to perovskite solar cells boosted the efficiency ...

New organelle discovered inside cells found to prevent cancer

Scientists at the University of Virginia School of Medicine have discovered a strange new organelle inside our cells that helps to prevent cancer by ensuring that genetic material is sorted correctly as cells divide.

Climate change in protected areas endangers biodiversity

Researchers at the University of Bayreuth have calculated for the first time how climate change is likely to affect the earth's conservation areas by 2070. In Nature Communications, they present their study with which they ...

Persistence pays off with first images of butterfly eggs

Kim Moss hunched over plants with her camera for hours in Grand Teton National Park this summer, hoping to capture the Parnassius clodius butterfly laying its eggs. She accomplished her goal.
