Language skills are essential to a child’s ability to communicate and develop. These skills enable children to engage with other people and learn from their surroundings and in the classroom.
Each human cell is distinct because it is written in the DNA language.
Recent research has discovered that the membranes of breast cancer cells have varying voltages, revealing information regarding their growth and spread.
The island of Madagascar-;one of the last large land masses colonized by humans-;sits about 250 miles (400 kilometers) off the coast of East Africa.
For the first time, researchers have identified a large number of genes that are reliably linked to dyslexia.
In this interview, we speak to Samantha Maragh, the leader of the genome editing program at NIST, about the genome editing vocabulary and what this means for researchers worldwide.
The Atacama Trench is a deep-water channel running along the Pacific coast of Chili and Peru, South America. In 2018, an international team of scientists used free-falling "landers" to study the trench, gathering images and specimens of deep-sea creatures.
The amount of biological data that is currently available has increased exponentially in recent decades as a result of the quick development of the various disciplines in the fields of biological and biomedical research (like genomics, proteomics, and transcriptomics).
Apple, apricot, walnut, pear and plum – some of the most widely consumed temperate fruit and nuts globally – find their origins in the forests of Central Asia.
Customized protein design is now possible, thanks to artificial intelligence (AI), which can be used to address both medicinal and environmental issues. Now, a computer-based natural language processing model has been effectively used for protein research by a team at the University of Bayreuth under the direction of Prof. Dr Birte Höcker.
The use of less bleach and lower temperatures over washing machine cycles is promoted as a result of shifting societal attitudes toward the environment.
If you are skilled at playing puzzles on your smartphone or tablet, what does it say about how fast you learn new puzzles, or, more broadly, how well you can focus, say, in school or at work? Or, in the language of psychologists, does "near transfer" predict "far transfer"?
A study from the Missouri Ozarks highlights the importance of spatial aspects of biodiversity for healthy functioning of naturally occurring forests.
Educators at the Renaissance School of Medicine (RSOM) at Stony Brook University highlighted the success of their three-year, elective course in biodesign that has enabled students to expand their abilities as innovators to creating potential medical devices for the future.
Scripps Research scientists have introduced a new software tool for examining RNA (ribonucleic acid) molecules, which play a variety of important roles in living things.
New research from Cornell scientists is exploring how human genetics impacts functions of the gut microbiome, and is expanding awareness of the role human genetics plays in shaping the microbiome.
Scientists have known for years that amyloid fibrils -; fibrous, ropelike structures formed by closely linked protein molecules -; are present in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases and likely play a role in the progression of these disorders.
In this interview, we speak to Dr. Maria Chatzou Dunford, CEO of Lifebit, about their technology and how it helps scientists to make better use of their data.
Understanding how the brain functions, particularly how information is processed during different activities, is difficult without knowing how many axons are in the brain and how many connect different functional regions.
Cells communicate with one another in the language of chemistry, but those from different kingdoms, such as bacteria and yeast, speak dialects virtually unintelligible to the other.
Researchers, for the first time, establish an artificial organic neuron, or a nerve cell, which can be combined with an artificial organic synapse and a living plant.
