While for many people sharks bring to mind the Jaws theme music, it seems sharks themselves prefer jazz.
Unless you've been living under a rock (no judgment, by the way), I'm sure you've heard about the reproducibility crisis in scientific research. In 2016, two posts on this blog covered what the main causes of irreproducibility ...
About 21 million years ago, a fungus that causes a devastating disease in rice first became harmful to the food that nourishes roughly half the world's population, according to an international study led by Rutgers University-New ...
In a study of 11 different plant species, published in Molecular Biology and Evolution, researchers at the University of Oxford have shown that the speed at which plants evolve is linked to how good they are at photosynthesis.
Could a unique bacterium be nature's microscopic power plant?
