Scientists have puzzled for centuries over how and why multicellular organisms evolved the almost universal trait of using single cells, such as eggs and sperm, to reproduce.
An international team of researchers has discovered that the Earth’s oxygen content 2.1 billion years ago was the same as it was during the so-called Cambrian explosion that occurred approximately 542 years ago and resulted in the appearance of most major animal phyla.
A team of scientists from Harvard and Yale have recorded the entire genome of the bacteria E. coli, and in a dramatic demonstration of the potential of rewriting an organism's genetic code, they have improved the bacterium's ability to resist viruses.
As termites eat wood, the small chunks they chew off are delivered to feed a community of unique microbes living in their guts. In a complex multi-step process, these microbes turn the hard, fibrous material of the wood into a nutritious meal for the termite host.

Scientists are increasingly focusing their attention on the world's seas in the hopes of finding the next generation of medications that could lead to a variety of cures.
