Scientists have developed a new infrared-UV laser method to more accurately determine the structure of proteins containing thousands of atoms.
Microfluidic devices are used to detect chemicals in small samples for health and security concerns. Now, this imaging technology is being applied to answer fundamental questions.
Researchers have uncovered the characteristics of a low-resistance electrical contact to strontium titanate— an important prototypical oxide semiconductor.
Scientists have confirmed that the pathogen that causes Lyme disease— unlike any other known organism— can exist without iron, a metal that all other life needs to make proteins and enzymes.
The prebiotic potential of seaweed-derived nutriments has to be further confirmed before marine nutritional supplements flood the shelves of health shops.
A starburst galaxy is visible as a small, sparkling hook in the dark sky. It has an incredibly, and unusually, high rate of star formation occurring within it.
New research challenges long-held beliefs regarding the demise of Sir John Franklin's ill-fated Northwest Passage expedition that departed from England in 1845.
At a ceremony, Waters announced the selection of the St. John’s Research Institute for its Centers of Innovation Program for research in the field of structural proteomics.
Researchers have found a new way to switch magnetism that is at least 1,000 times faster than currently used in magnetic memory technologies.
Researchers have identified a host of small molecules critical to metabolism in cells of triple-negative breast cancer— one of the least understood groups of breast cancer.
Exhaled human breath contains a characteristic molecular “fingerprint.” The scientists want to use this finding to diagnose diseases based on the chemical analysis of patient's exhaled breath, using highly sensitive and precise instrumental methods.
Researchers are working to find the fingerprints of isotopes in chemical elements—specifically phosphorus—in order to track sources of nutrients in the environmentally sensitive Chesapeake Bay, other bodies of water and farmland throughout the Mid-Atlantic.
A screening tool from the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) eases and greatly quickens one of the thorniest tasks in the biofuels industry: determining cell wall chemistry to find plants with ideal genes.
A new paper advances scientific understanding of the structure and function of glycoproteins, in particular the number and positioning of sugars on them. Glycoproteins are membrane proteins that are often involved in human diseases.
The powerful venom of the saw-scaled viper Echis carinatus contains both anticoagulants and coagulants. These may be a source of potent drugs to treat human disease, finds a study in the open access journal Journal of Venomous Animals.
