Disruptions in the supply of energy to cells can cause a number of serious diseases, but they also appear to be linked to aging. More research on mitochondrial function is needed to find future treatments. A new study with researchers from the Karolinska Institutet shows how an important molecule in the mitochondria affects their function […]
One of the most difficult problems in cancer therapy is drug resistance development and subsequent disease progression. In a new article on the cover of this month of Cancer researchResearchers at the Moffitt Cancer Center, in collaboration with Oxford University, report on the results of their study, which uses mathematical models to show that cell […]
Murdo Macdonald makes his debut this month as the presenter of a new series called Gàrraidhean Mòra na h-Alba / Gardens of Scotland on BBC ALBA.
How do stones rust on the earth and turn red? A study led by Rutgers has shed new light on the important phenomenon and will help answer questions about the late Triassic climate more than 200 million years ago, when greenhouse gas levels were high enough to be a model of how our planet was […]
The scientific process is an iterative and collaborative journey. Research results are published, others can weigh the results, and hypotheses can be confirmed, refuted or further refined and tested. Although it may seem like a second guess or, in some cases, it becomes controversial, this often overlooked aspect of the scientific method improves science by […]
Research from the University of Wyoming shows that physical weathering is far more important than previously thought when mining rocks in mountainous landscapes. Because it is difficult to measure, previous studies have generally assumed that physical weathering is negligible. Cliff Riebe, professor at the UW Institute for Geology and Geophysics, headed a research group that […]
The Tamworth-based garden center Planters is seeing lower footfall, a good renovation and is grateful that it can be opened during the third closure.
An invisible groundwater flow seeps into the ocean along the world's coasts. Scientists have tended to disregard their contributions to ocean chemistry and have focused on the far larger amounts of water and solute that enter the ocean from rivers and streams. However, a new study has found that groundwater discharge plays a more important […]
A longstanding debate about how a key gene silencing protein identifies its targets has been resolved by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). Their results, reported in Natural structure and molecular biologyAlso, explain certain puzzles surrounding the behavior of this protein known as Polycomb Repressive Complex 2 (PRC2). PRC2 helps regulate whether genes are active […]
Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego researchers have uncovered how rain and waves act on different parts of coastal cliffs. Following three years of cliff surveys in and near the coastal city of Del Mar, Calif., they determined that wave impacts directly affect the base, and rain mostly impacts the upper region of […]
