Is Water the Fuel of the Future?

Combining computational with experimental approaches, researchers identify 12 new materials with potential use in solar fuels generators.

Gene Found to Cause Sudden Death in Young People

A new gene that can lead to sudden death among young people and athletes has now been identified by an international team of researchers. The gene, called CDH2, causes arrhythmogenic right ventricle cardiomyopathy (ARVC), which is a genetic disorder that predisposes patients to cardiac arrest and is a major cause of unexpected death in seemingly healthy young people.

Scientists Close in on Cracking ‘Enigma Code’ of Common Cold

Scientists at the Universities of York, Leeds, and Helsinki say they are a step closer to cracking, what scientists have called, the ‘Enigma Code’ of the common cold virus.

Computer Operating System and Short Movie Stored on DNA

An algorithm designed for streaming video on a cellphone can unlock DNA's nearly full storage potential by squeezing more information into its four base nucleotides, say researchers. They demonstrate that this technology is also extremely reliable.

How Reliable are Traditional Wildlife Surveys?

How accurate are traditional wildlife surveys? The Rocky Mountain Sandhill Crane is helping us fine tune the estimates from these surveys.

How Sperm Swim Revealed in Mathematical Formula

Researchers have developed a mathematical formula based on the rhythmic movement of a sperm's head and tail, which significantly reduces the complexities of understanding and predicting how sperm make the difficult journey towards fertilizing an egg.
