Throughout history, information has been stored through ever-changing channels, and increasingly people store pictures, work and other important information digitally. But how do we ensure that important information can be preserved for the long-haul, for even tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of years? Presenting at the ACS Conference in Boston this week, Robert N. Grass, Ph.D., ETH Zurich, suggests we look to DNA.
Microgravity environments show great promise for enhancing human health and drug discovery.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers have developed a bipedal robot that can react with human-like reflexes via a unique balance-feedback interface.
Pathogen detection is an emerging application where targeted, next-generation sequencing (NGS) holds great potential. Not only can it quickly identify all species in a given sample and guide targeted treatments, it can also be useful to track the evolution of microorganisms, allowing public health officials to develop proactive strategies to help them stay ahead of deadly outbreaks.
Children with multiple sclerosis (MS) who get regular exercise may have a less active disease, according to a new study published online Wednesday in the journal Neurology.
In the final part of this three-part series, Thomas Wohlfarth discusses the value of Integrated Structural Biology with a few examples.
In teens, band practice enhances the brain’s ability to process sound better than ROTC training, says a new study in the Proceedings of the National Academies of Science.
According to the researchers, both species’ skulls consist of numerous bony spines, which are enlarged in the nasal, jaw and occipital regions.

For patients diagnosed with chronic medical conditions, the proper use of self-administrated drug delivery is necessary for successful patient outcomes.
How you sleep – on your side, on your back, or face down – is usually thought of as a personal preference, but body position might actually affect how efficiently the brain clears waste, according to new research out of Stony Brook University. The findings could have implications for the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases that are characterized by plaque buildup.
Women who exercise as youths have less risk of death from cancer and all other causes later in life, according to a new study in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, a journal of the American Association for Cancer Research.
