Research shows oilseeds' potential for bioproduct creation

Plant science is opening up promising opportunities to create environmentally friendly bioproducts—fuels, lubricants and other products that substitute for petroleum-based ones. Researchers with the University of Nebraska–Lincoln's ...

Process to customize molecules does double duty

Inspired by your liver and activated by light, a chemical process developed in labs at Rice University and in China shows promise for drug design and the development of unique materials.

Quantum mechanics could explain why DNA can spontaneously mutate

The molecules of life, DNA, replicate with astounding precision, yet this process is not immune to mistakes and can lead to mutations. Using sophisticated computer modeling, a team of physicists and chemists at the University ...
