What is the nature of the universe in which we exist? From subatomic particles to the farthest reaches of the universe, the composition of the earth to the components of individual cells, we seek to answer the universe’s—and life’s—big questions.
A study by James Fry offers strong support for the balancing selection theory by examining how different strains of Drosophila melanogaster handle alcohol.
A University research team, led by biology professor Jack Werren has helped map the genome of the common bed bug, an important step toward eliminating the known parasite.
A team led by William Jones has developed a series of reactions that results in the selective conversion of ethanol to butanol, without producing unwanted byproducts.
Steven Manly and Kevin McFarland are among the 2016 laureates of the Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics. Their team’s work on neutrinos could lead to a new frontier in the study of physical sciences.
David Goldfarb is the sole owner of a popular patent that could one day lead to treatments for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, or even slow down the aging process.
Can the first ice sheets in the Northern Hemisphere tell us more about reverse global warming? Carmala Garzione and John Tarduno aim to find out in a new research project.
Physicists have struggled to find a clear boundary between our everyday world and the quantum world. A new paper co-authored by Joseph Eberly may determine that Bell’s Inequality is not the guidepost to this boundary.
The best estimate of the age of Earth’s magnetic field has been 3.45 billion years. John Tarduno’s new data shows it’s 500 million years older.
A study, co-authored by Florian Jaeger, shows that people with similar views tend to more closely mirror, or align with, each other’s speech patterns.
Eric Mamajek and his team report that “Scholz’s star” likely passed some 70,000 years ago through our solar system’s distant cloud of comets known as the Oort Cloud.
A team of neuroscientists and neurosurgeons use a new imaging technique to show how the human brain heals itself following surgical removal of a brain tumor.
Astronomer Eric Mamajek and his co-author have discovered that the ring system around the Sun-like star J1407 is of enormous proportions, much larger and heavier than the ring system of Saturn.
