May 18, 2015 — Scientists have solved a long-standing mystery about methanogens, unique microorganisms that transform electricity and carbon dioxide into methane. The results could pave the way for microbial ... read more

Organic Nanoparticles, More Lethal to Tumors

May 18, 2015 — Carbon-based nanoparticles could be used to sensitize cancerous tumours to proton radiotherapy and induce more focused destruction of cancer cells, a new study shows. Radiotherapy used in cancer ... read more

Revealing Breast Cancer Using Nanoscale Polymers

May 14, 2015 — A biocompatible polymer selectively targets and lights up cancer tumors for a noninvasive imaging system, investigators report. Generating photoacoustic signals requires an ultrafast laser pulse to ... read more

May 13, 2015 — A new material stays liquid more than 200 degrees F below its expected freezing point, but a light touch can cause it to form yellow crystals that glow under ultraviolet ... read more

Ion Pump Gives the Body Its Own Pain Alleviation

May 10, 2015 — A small ion pump in organic electronics is giving new hope to people suffering from severe nerve pain. Researchers are the first in the world with technology that can stop pain impulses in living, ... read more

siRNA-Toting Nanoparticles Inhibit Breast Cancer Metastasis

May 12, 2015 — Researchers combined finely crafted nanoparticles with one of nature's potent disrupters to prevent the spread of triple-negative breast cancer in mouse models. The researchers are working ... read more

Altering Genes With the Aid of Light

May 8, 2015 — Scientists have been manipulating genes for a while. Now researchers have found a way to control the process with higher precision, by using ... read more

May 8, 2015 — A convenient procedure to visualize defects on graphene layers by mapping the surface of carbon materials with an appropriate contrast agent was introduced by a team of ... read more

Faster, More Durable Water Filters: Plugging Up Leaky Graphene

May 7, 2015 — For faster, longer-lasting water filters, some scientists are looking to graphene --thin, strong sheets of carbon -- to serve as ultrathin membranes, filtering out contaminants to quickly purify high ... read more

May 7, 2015 — A new study shows that it is possible to use an imaging technique called cryo-electron microscopy to view, in near-atomic detail, the architecture of a metabolic enzyme bound to a drug that blocks ... read more

A Better Way to Build DNA Scaffolds: Long, Custom-Designed DNA Strands

May 6, 2015 — Imagine taking strands of DNA - the material in our cells that determines how we look and function - and using it to build tiny structures that can deliver drugs to targets within the body or take ... read more

May 6, 2015 — Conventional silicon-based computing, which has advanced by leaps and bounds in recent decades, is pushing against its practical limits. DNA computing could help take the digital era to the next ... read more
