A long-planned effort to examine gene expression and gene regulation in all the major tissues in the human body across many people comes to fruition.
Organic matter drifts down to the equatorial ocean floor in distinct patterns.
In a new study, scientists have discovered huge canyons cutting through the underbelly of Antarctica’s ice shelves, meaning they may be more fragile than previously thought. Thanks to the CryoSat and Sentinel-1 missions, new light is being shed on this hidden world.
One of the primary questions when characterizing Earth-sized and super-Earth-sized exoplanets is whether they have a substantial atmosphere like Earth and Venus or a bare-rock surface like Mercury….
We derive fitting formulae for the quick determination of the existence of S-type and P-type habitable zones in binary systems….
Grants from big science funders can be hard to use without better administration and mutual understanding, says Rana Dajani.
Annual jamborees fail to ignite public passion but are crucial to progress on global-warming.
We combine inferred galaxy properties from a semi-analytic galaxy evolution model incorporating dark matter halo merger trees with new estimates of supernova and gamma ray burst rates as a function of metallicity from stellar population synthesis models incorporating binary interactions….
