Microbial Diversity Below Seafloor Is as Rich as on Earth's Surface

For the first time, researchers have mapped the biological diversity of marine sediment, one of Earth's largest global biomes. The research team discovered that microbial diversity in the dark, ...

CRISPR Meets Pac-Man: New DNA Cut-and-Paste Tool Enables Bigger Gene Edits

Gene editing for the development of new treatments, and for studying disease as well as normal function in humans and other organisms, may advance more quickly with a new tool for cutting larger ...

Plants Communicate at a Molecular Level

Biologists have discovered how tomato plants identify Cuscuta as a parasite. The plant has a protein in its cell walls that is identified as 'foreign' by a receptor in the ...

Declines in Shellfish Species on Rocky Seashores Match Climate-Driven Changes

Mussels, barnacles, and snails are declining in the Gulf of Maine, according to a new article by biologists. Their 20-year dataset reveals that the ...

Light Pollution May Increase Biting Behavior at Night in Aedes Aegypti Mosquitoes

Artificial light abnormally increases mosquito biting behavior at night in a species that typically prefers to bite people during the day, according to new ...

Repairing the Photosynthetic Enzyme Rubisco

Researchers have elucidated how Rubisco activase works. As the name indicates, this enzyme is critical for repairing Rubisco once it has lost its ...

Salt-Based Mosquito-Control Products Are Ineffective

A new study by a bevy of expert mosquito researchers offers an important warning to consumers: Products claiming to reduce mosquito populations with salt-water solutions are ineffective. In a series ...

Tiny Beetles a Bellwether of Ecological Disruption by Climate Change

New research shows that as species across the world adjust where they live in response to climate change, they will come into competition with other species that could hamper their ability to keep up ...

CRISPR-Induced Immune Diversification in Host-Virus Populations

Just like humans, microbes have equipped themselves with tools to recognize and defend themselves against viral invaders. In a continual evolutionary battle between virus and host, CRISPR-Cas act as ...

Prebiotic Chemistry: In the Beginning, There Was Sugar

Organic molecules formed the basis for the evolution of life. But how could inorganic precursors have given rise to them? Chemists now reports a reaction pathway in which minerals catalyze the ...

Light Pollution Alters Predator-Prey Interactions Between Cougars and Mule Deer in Western US

A new study provides strong evidence that exposure to light pollution alters predator-prey dynamics between mule deer and cougars across the intermountain West, a rapidly growing region where ...

AI Methods of Analyzing Social Networks Find New Cell Types in Tissue

In situ sequencing enables gene activity inside body tissues to be depicted in microscope images. To facilitate interpretation of the vast quantities of information generated. Researchers have now ...

Neurons in a Visual Brain Area of Zebrafish Are Arranged as a Map for Catching Prey

Spotting, pursuing and catching prey - for many animals this is an essential task for survival. Scientists now show in zebrafish that the localization of neurons in the midbrain is adapted to a ...

Natural Killer Cells Also Have a Memory Function

Good news for the human immune system: researchers have managed to ascribe an immunological memory function to a subset of cytotoxic NK cells, which have hitherto been regarded as ...

Tapping Secrets of Aussie Spider's Unique Silk

The basket-web spider, which is found only in Australia, has revealed it not only weaves a unique lobster pot web but that its silk has elasticity and a gluing substance, that creates a high degree ...

Losing Flight Had Huge Benefits for Ants

Researchers have taken detailed scans of worker ants to examine the hypothesis that the loss of flight is directly connected to the evolution of ...

Those Funky Cheese Smells Allow Microbes to 'Talk' to and Feed Each Other

Researchers found that bacteria essential to ripening cheese can sense and respond to compounds produced by fungi in the rind and released into the air, enhancing the growth of some species of ...

Thin tissue grafts and flexible electronics have a host of applications for wound healing, regenerative medicine and biosensing. A new device inspired by an octopus's sucker rapidly transfers ...

Fats Fighting Back Against Bacteria

With antibiotic-resistant superbugs on the rise, this research shows a new way that cells are using to protect themselves - using fats as a covert weapon, and giving us new insights into alternative ...

Researchers have identified a number of 'silent' mutations in the roughly 30,000 letters of the COVID-19 virus's genetic code that helped it thrive once it made the leap from bats and ...

Protecting Ecologically Important Krill in the Southern Ocean from Overfishing

Although the krill catch is regulated, caution is required to avoid endangering the population itself and the species that depend on it, warns a group of krill ...

Gel Instrumental in 3D Bioprinting Biological Tissues

The eventual creation of replacement biological parts requires fully three-dimensional capabilities that two-dimensional and three-dimensional thin-film bioprinting cannot supply. Now, using a yield ...
