The Hubble Space Telescope's premier camera has shut down because of a hardware problem.
New method of genome editing not only gives the user complete spatiotemporal control but also treads lightly on DNA
A major obstacle to in-cell genome editing is, well, the cell itself.
Last autumn, the world was excited by the discovery of an exoplanet called Ross 128 b, which is just 11 light years away from Earth. New work from a team led by Diogo Souto of Brazil's Observatório Nacional and including ...
Researchers at Kyushu University's Center for Organic Photonics and Electronics Research (OPERA) in Japan have demonstrated a way to split energy in organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) and surpass the 100 percent limit ...
The discovery changes our understanding of the basic mechanism of photosynthesis and should rewrite the textbooks.
With a thin probe and a burst of microwaves, doctors can eradicate cancer cells without opening up a patient for surgery.
An international team of scientists has demonstrated a breakthrough in the design and function of nanoparticles that could make solar panels more efficient by converting light usually missed by solar cells into usable energy.
Scientists from the University of Sheffield have solved the structure of a photosynthetic protein to reveal how it converts near-infrared light into an electrical charge.
A new photothermal treatment could help to overcome antibiotic resistance. In this method, an agent transforms near-infrared light into local heating, which kills the pathogens. However, this "transformer" must first be activated, ...
