Scientists use cell imaging and mathematical modeling to understand cancer progression

Scientists use cell imaging and mathematical modeling to understand cancer progression

Cell division is a fundamental process that organisms need to reproduce, grow, and make repairs. But when an error disrupts this complex biological process, cellular abnormalities can lead to diseases, such as cancer, where...
Study: TRESK regulates brain to track time using sunlight as its cue

Study: TRESK regulates brain to track time using sunlight as its cue

Research from the University of Kent has found that TRESK, a calcium regulated two-pore potassium channel, regulates the brain's central circadian clock to differentiate behaviour between day and night. It was previously understood that the...
Study: New evidence shows giant meteorite impacts formed parts of the moon's crust

Study: New evidence shows giant meteorite impacts formed parts of the moon’s crust

New research published today in the journal Nature Astronomy reveals a type of destructive event most often associated with disaster movies and dinosaur extinction may have also contributed to the formation of the Moon's...
Study: How nutrient-starved cells recycle internal components

Study: How nutrient-starved cells recycle internal components

The idea of the cell as a city is a common introduction to biology, conjuring depictions of the cell's organelles as power plants, factories, roads, libraries, warehouses and more. Like a city, these structures...
Scientists uncover tools used by predatory bacteria to escape unharmed from prey cell

Scientists uncover tools used by predatory bacteria to escape unharmed from prey cell

Predatory bacteria, capable of invading and consuming harmful bugs such as E .coli and Salmonella, use a unique tool to help them escape the cell they have invaded without harming themselves, according to a...
Study: Age-related impairments reversed in animal model

Study: Age-related impairments reversed in animal model

Frailty and immune decline are two main features of old age. Researchers from the University of Bern and the University Hospital Bern now demonstrate in an animal model that these two age-related impairments can...
Study: Virginia Tech research provides new explanation for neutrino anomalies in Antarctica

Study: Virginia Tech research provides new explanation for neutrino anomalies in Antarctica

A new research paper co-authored by a Virginia Tech assistant professor of physics provides a new explanation for two recent strange events that occurred in Antarctica - high-energy neutrinos appearing to come up out...
Study: Fluid mechanics mystery solved

Study: Fluid mechanics mystery solved

An Oregon State University environmental engineering professor has solved a decades-old mystery regarding the behavior of fluids, a field of study with widespread medical, industrial and environmental applications. The research by Brian D. Wood, published...
Research reveals impacts of climate change on migrating mule deer

Research reveals impacts of climate change on migrating mule deer

When drought reshuffles the green-up of habitats that mule deer migrate across, it dramatically shortens the annual foraging bonanza they rely on. That is the main finding of a new University of Wyoming study, which...
Study: Failures of Germany's largest cliff coast sensed by seismometers

Study: Failures of Germany’s largest cliff coast sensed by seismometers

The ten km long, bright white coast of Germany's largest island, Rügen, is shaped by episodically occurring failures. These failures were typically assumed to happen due to strong rain storms. In a study carried...
