New lines of engineered bacteria can tailor-make key precursors of high-octane biofuels that could one day replace gasoline
Slipping bacteria some silver could give old antibiotics new life.
A team of Harvard engineers has made a successful test flight with a tiny robotic insect that is half the size of a paperclip, weighs less than a tenth of a gram, and can flap its wings 120 times per second.
New research from Harvard University helps to explain how waterborne bacteria can colonize rough surfaces—even those that have been designed to resist water.
Tunable material system designed by Harvard team is easily adaptable for diverse applications in fuel transport, textiles, optical systems, and more
Doctors routinely track their patients' hand-eye coordination to monitor any neuromuscular deficits, particularly as patients age or when they are injured -- but the tests they have been using to track this kind of information may be subjective and qualitative.
A team of scientists just won a battle in the war against antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" -- and only time will tell if their feat is akin to the bacterial "Battle of Gettysburg" that turns the tide toward victory.
A team of materials scientists at Harvard University and the University of Exeter, UK, have invented a new fiber that changes color when stretched.
Researchers at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University have developed a method for building complex nanostructures out of short synthetic strands of DNA.
