Think of the human body as an intricate machine whose working parts are proteins: molecules that change shape to enable our organs and tissues to...
A UNSW-led team of researchers has discovered how algae that survive in very low levels of light are able to switch on and off a weird quantum...
Humans tend to think of the flow of time in the context of evolution and biology as a fairly consistent thing [1]. We are used to the conceptual...
How does a stem cell decide what path to take? In a way, it’s up to the wisdom of the crowd. The DNA in a pluripotent stem cell is bombarded with...
Nanopores may one day lead a revolution in DNA sequencing. By sliding DNA molecules one at a time through tiny holes in a thin membrane, it may be...
It's broadly assumed that cells degrade and recycle their own old or damaged organelles, but researchers at University of California, San Diego...
Orexin proteins, which are blamed for spontaneous daytime sleepiness, also play a crucial role in bone formation, according to findings by UT...
Humans and corals are about as different from one another as living creatures get, but a new finding reveals that in one important way, they are more...
Sometimes a cell has to die-when it's done with its job or inflicted with injury that could otherwise harm an organism. Conversely, cells that refuse...
A team of biologists from the University of Leicester has solved a mystery surrounding how plants have sex. The researchers have discovered a pair of...
