Scientists detect signatures of life remotelyIt could be a milestone on the path to detecting life on other planets: Scientists detect a key molecular property of all living organisms from a helicopter flying several kilometers above ground. The measurement technology could also open up opportunities for remote sensing of the Earth.
3 jMost cancer cells grown in a dish have little in common with cancer cells in people, research findsIn a bid to find or refine laboratory research models for cancer that better compare with what happens in living people, scientists report they have developed a new computer-based technique showing that human cancer cells grown in culture dishes are the least genetically similar to their human sources.
3 jUnraveling the origin of Alzheimer's diseaseResearchers studying prions -- misfolded proteins that cause lethal incurable diseases -- have identified the surface features of human prions responsible for their replication in the brain.
4 jPhysicists bring human-scale object to near standstill, reaching a quantum stateIn the last few decades, physicists have found ways to super-cool objects so that their atoms are at a near standstill, wrestling small objects such as clouds of millions of atoms, or nanogram-scale objects, into such pure quantum states. Now scientists have cooled a large, human-scale object to close to its motional ground state. The object isn't tangible in the sense of being situated at one location, but is the combined motion of four separate objects. The 'object' that the researchers cooled has an estimated mass of about 10 kilograms, and comprises nearly 1 octillion atoms.
4 jNew method could reveal what genes we might have inherited from NeanderthalsUsing neural networks, researchers have developed a new method to search the human genome for beneficial mutations from Neanderthals and other archaic humans. These humans are known to have interbred with modern humans, but the overall fate of the genetic material inherited from them is still largely unknown. Among others, the researchers found previously unreported mutations involved in core pathways in metabolism, blood-related diseases and immunity.
4 jWe cannot cheat aging and death, study indicatesPhilosophers, artists and scientists -- and probably all the rest of us -- have long obsessed over the key to human immortality. We all, no matter our income, culture or religion are bound to die. Even if we escape mortal diseases or accidents, we all face a deadly biological deterioration. While the debate of human longevity has divided the scientific community for centuries, a new study finds fresh evidence for our inevitable death.
5 jNew discovery shows human cells can write RNA sequences into DNAIn a discovery that challenges long-held dogma in biology, researchers show that mammalian cells can convert RNA sequences back into DNA, a feat more common in viruses than eukaryotic cells.
10 jStudy finds brain areas involved in seeking information about bad possibilitiesResearchers have identified the brain regions involved in choosing whether to find out if a bad event is about to happen.
10 jAfrican great apes to suffer massive range loss in next 30 yearsA new study predicts massive range declines of Africa's great apes -- gorillas, chimpanzees and bonobos -- due to the impacts of climate change, land-use changes and human population growth.
14 jBacteria are connected to how babies experience fearWhy do some babies react to perceived danger more than others? According to new research, part of the answer may be found in a surprising place: an infant's digestive system.
