Latest Scattering Stories
Certification program to accelerate world-wide DNA testing FORT WORTH, Texas, Feb.
Neutron scattering analysis of two families of iron-based materials suggests that the magnetic interactions thought responsible for high-temperature superconductivity may lie "two doors down": The key magnetic exchange pairings occur in a next-nearest-neighbor ordering of atoms, rather than adjacent atoms.
Duke University bioengineers have developed a new method for rapidly producing an almost unlimited variety of man-made DNA sequences.
Using a new experimental test structure, biophysicists at JILA have unraveled part of a 15-year mystery in the mechanics of DNAâ€”just how the molecule manages to suddenly extend to almost twice its normal length.
New technology providing the first view of DNA damage throughout the entire human genome developed by Cardiff University scientists could offer a valuable new insight into the development and treatment of conditions like cancer.
Whether the object of attention is a novel aspect of the universe or an enigmatic and distant colleague, listening is key to nearly any effort to seek understanding.
AKRON, Ohio, Jan. 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- A new method of child and maternal nutrition could prevent a specific type of genetic damage that would otherwise occur in up to 160 million brain cells in each person over their lifetime.
A new study published Tuesday reveals that an increasing number of appearance traits, including hair color, are extractable from DNA.
Dr Alex Bronstein of Tel Aviv University's Department of Electrical Engineering has a new way to stop video pirates.
Graduate student Markita Landry describes her research, learning experiences and cultural adjustment in Japan as part of NSF's EAPSI program.
Sky -- Although almost everyone have seen it, sky is hard to be defined precisely. Generally, sky is the space seen when one looks upward from the surface of a planet. Some people define sky as the denser gaseous zone of a planet's atmosphere. Clouds, rainbows and weather all occur amongst a planet's sky. In astronomy, the sky is divided into many regions, called constellations. The blue colour of the daytime sky results from the selective scattering of light rays. When the sunlight...
