Smokers who are able to quit might actually be hard-wired for success, according to a study from Duke Medicine.
The Agriculture Department has developed the first government certification and labeling for foods that are free of genetically modified ingredients.
Life as we know it would not work chemically in environments like that found on Saturn’s moon Titan. But a kind of life that would be completely different – completely alien, based not on DNA but on entirely different chemistry – is very possible, according to new research published by Astrobiology magazine.
Precisely manufactured to SLAS/ANSI specifications, Porvair Sciences 24-well deep well plates permit users to undertake multiple, high volume (10ml / well) experiments in a single unit. The 24-well plates are constructed of high grade, low extractable polypropylene.
In a new article in the journal Health Affairs, scholars recap the reasons behind use of fear-based tactics and examine the consequences of controversies around ads targeting HIV and teen pregnancy.
The asteroid that slammed into the ocean off Mexico 66 million years ago and killed off the dinosaurs probably rang the Earth like a bell, triggering volcanic eruptions around the globe, according to a multi-disciplinary team of scientists.
Deaf education lecturers are using the Swivl robot in school classrooms in a UK first for teacher training.
Researchers have identified new molecules that kill cancer cells while protecting healthy cells and that could be used to treat a variety of different cancers. The research shines a light on what happens to cells at the moment they become cancerous.
A team of neuroscientists and bioengineers have created a miniature, fiber-optic microscope designed to peer deeply inside a living brain.
In the southern part of Indiana, an oasis exists where the ticks don’t carry Lyme Disease. But the rest of the contiguous U.S. still needs to watch out for the little sickness-carrying arachnids, with each walk in the woods. The geography of the various tick species is changing– and with it, some of what they can be carrying with each bite.
Standard versions of this screening process would have only been able to pinpoint ovarian cancer in less than half of this group.
Scientists find a single molecule that controls the fate of mature sensory neurons.
Genevac’s heat transfer plates for centrifugal evaporators enable almost any deep-well plate to be dried up to 50 percent faster than previously possible. The company's heat transfer plate design has a central flexible pad that deforms and molds itself to the exact shape of your deep-well plate.
Researchers are seeking to make computer brains smarter by making them more like our own.
Scientists have discovered that a brain protein has a key role in controlling binge drinking in animal models. They found that deleting the gene for this protein in mice ramped up alcohol consumption and prevented the brain from signaling the rewarding properties of alcohol.
