In a discovery that defies the popular meaning of the word "wire," scientists have found that Mother Nature uses DNA as a wire to detect the constantly occurring genetic damage and mistakes that ― if left unrepaired ― can result in diseases like cancer and underpin the physical and mental decline of aging.
DNA, the building block of life, is now home to more than just the world’s living creatures. Scientists from Harvard report that they have written an entire novel in DNA, a feat that could revolutionize our ability to save data.
In a new study, UT Dallas researchers outline how they used fluorescent molecules to “tag” DNA and monitor a process called DNA looping, a natural biological mechanism involved in rearranging genetic material in some types of cells.
DNA holds the genetic code for all sorts of biological molecules and traits.
Scientists at Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science reporting in the journal Nature Photonics said they have found a way to send images of light around corners.
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.
