Biophysicists Take Small Step in Quest for 'Robot Scientist'

Aug. 25, 2015 — Biophysicists have taken another small step forward in the quest for an automated method to infer models describing a system's dynamics -- a so-called robot ... read more

Aug. 25, 2015 — Quantum physics tell us that even massive particles can behave like waves, as if they could be in several places at once. This phenomenon is typically proven in the diffraction of a matter wave at a ... read more

Aug. 25, 2015 — Researchers combined the power of two computational programs to determine the atomic structure of the abiological molecule cyanostar. This breakthrough will allow researchers to investigate the ... read more

Aug. 25, 2015 — New research has found that water molecules react differently to electric fields, which could provide a new way to study spin isomers at the single-molecule level. Water molecules exist in two forms ... read more

Aug. 24, 2015 — The first use of biological proteins to maneuver chemical polymers has created nerve-like structures that could serve as a gentler interface between nerves and prosthetic ... read more

Aug. 24, 2015 — Using computer vision, signal processing and privacy protection, a doctoral student, along with electrical and computer engineering professors, have developed "MEBook," a combination of a ... read more

Aug. 24, 2015 — A major advance in solution phase soft-x-ray spectroscopy has been achieved utilizing a new liquid flatjet system, paving the way for novel steady-state and time-resolved ... read more

New Drug Protects Against the Deadly Effects of Nuclear Radiation 24 Hours After Exposure

Aug. 21, 2015 — A new breakthrough has been reported in countering the deadly effects of radiation exposure. A single injection of a regenerative peptide was shown to significantly increase survival in mice when ... read more

Intractable Pain May Find Relief in Tiny Gold Rods

Aug. 21, 2015 — Scientists have developed a technique that could lead to therapies for pain relief in people with intractable pain, potentially including cancer-related pain. The team coated gold nanorods with a ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — Results of the XENON100 experiment are a bright spot in the search for dark matter. The team of international scientists involved in the project demonstrated the sensitivity of their detector and ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — Researchers using the IceCube Neutrino Observatory have sorted through the billions of subatomic particles that zip through its frozen cubic-kilometer-sized detector each year to gather powerful new ... read more

Aug. 20, 2015 — An improved spleen-mimicking device has been developed that synergizes with conventional antibiotic therapies and that has been streamlined for near-term translation to the ... read more

Grape Waste Could Make Competitive Biofuel

Aug. 20, 2015 — Global wine production leaves an estimated 13 million tonnes of grape marc waste each year. Now researchers are suggesting that this solid waste left over from wine-making could make a competitive ... read more

The Unbearable Lightness of Helium May Not Be Such a Problem After All

Aug. 19, 2015 — Helium gas -- essential for MRI scanners, semiconductor manufacture (and according to some, party balloons) -- may not be on the verge of running out after all. Previous studies had raised concerns ... read more

Introducing the Single-Cell Maze Runner

Aug. 19, 2015 — New findings on somersaulting single-cell organisms could impact the study of how the containment affects the behavior of organisms, used in a wide variety of engineering and scientific ... read more

New Compounds Could Reduce Alcoholics' Impulse to Drink

Aug. 19, 2015 — Alcoholism inflicts a heavy physical, emotional and financial toll on individuals and society. Now new discoveries and promising animal studies are offering a glimmer of hope that a new class of ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Highly efficient, light-emitting diodes could slash the world's electricity consumption. They are already sold in stores, but are expensive, and many of them give off 'harsh' light. ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Finding a technology to shift carbon dioxide, the most abundant anthropogenic greenhouse gas, from a climate change problem to a valuable commodity has long been a dream. Now, a team of chemists says ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — Hydrogen sulfide becomes superconductive at minus 70 degree Celsius -- when the substance is placed under a pressure of 1.5 million bar -- researchers have observed. This corresponds to half of the ... read more

Aug. 19, 2015 — New research could one day help build computers from DNA. Scientists have found a way to 'switch' the structure of DNA using copper salts and EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) -- an ... read more
